Premature loss of primary teeth can result in the loss of arch length leading to malocclusion. Early interception and prevention of malocclusion in deciduous and early mixed dentition prevents the development of pronounced anomalies in the late mixed dentition and permanent dentition, thereby, reducing or eliminating the need for later comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Space maintenance forms an integral part of preventive and interceptive orthodontics. This article has reviewed and summarized some of the variables to be considered when effecting space control, the factors that dictate appliance selection, the indications and use of space maintainers in primary and mixed dentitions.
