Space Maintainer(also known as a Band & Loop) uses a wire loop soldered to a molar band and extending anteriorly where it contacts the distal edge of the tooth on the mesial side of the space to prevent this drift. The appliance is left in place until the patient’s bicuspid(s) erupt and fill the space.
The Space Regainer
The Space Regainer is similar to the Space Maintainer, but is spring loaded. This appliance is used to regain space when the first molar has already begun to drift into the space left by the primary molar.
