BAND AND LOOP SPACE MAINTAINER EPUB

Primary denture teeth, which are smaller and whiter than adult denture teeth are available to fabricate a natural looking appliance.

Posterior Tooth Loss Premature loss of a posterior primary tooth results in mesial tilting of the tooth distal to the extraction space due band and loop space maintainer the mesial direction of eruption of the first permanent molar.

The lack of space prevents eruption of the permanent tooth into its proper position.

BAND AND LOOP SPACE MAINTAINER EPUB

To maintain the space band and loop space maintainer allow normal eruption of the permanent tooth a space maintainer is placed. Depending on the location of the extraction site there are a variety of space maintainers from which to choose. It includes instruction on fitting bands to teeth, taking a compound impression, bending wire, and soldering silver.

This publication includes large downloadable files. If the second primary molar is lost after the eruption of the first band and loop space maintainer second permanent molars, then a space maintainer is not usually required.

Whenever a permanent tooth is lost, with the exception of the third molars, some type of space maintainer or prosthesis is indicated in order to preserve the integrity of the arch and the established occlusion until a permanent prosthesis is placed.

If the patient is undergoing other treatment e. Considering the above guidelines, we will now discuss the fabrication of the band and loop type space band and loop space maintainer. This fixed appliance can be used to maintain space, either unilaterally or bilaterally, following the premature loss of a primary or secondary molar.

Space Maintainers in Dentistry: Past to Present

A band is placed on the second primary molar and a wire loop extends to the distal of the primary cuspid. It is contraindicated to maintain the space for a missing second primary molar. The band and loop would extend from the first permanent molar to the first primary molar to maintain space for the second premolar.

However, the first primary molar exfoliates before the second premolar erupts and the band and loop would lose its source of anchorage.

Therefore a lingual or palatal holding arch should be placed.

Space Maintainers in Dentistry: Past to Present

Bands and loops are being has been used since long as a space maintainer with good high success rates Baroni et al. Considering this, there has been many pilot studies that explains band and loop space maintainer use of newer adhesive directly bonded splints eg: Glass fibre reinforced composite resins Ribbond [ 9 ], Everstick [ 1011 ] as fixed space maintainers.

Ribbond is a biocompatible esthetic material made from high strength polyethylene fibres.
