If your child loses a baby tooth before the adult tooth is ready to come in, it can cause problems for their smile. Our pediatric dentists, Dr. Hans Petersen or Dr. Kadin Wilson, may suggest using a space maintainer in Lehi, Utah, to help your child’s permanent teeth erupt properly. If your child has had an unexpected tooth loss, you can make an appointment at Lehi Pediatric Dentistry by calling 801-766-5557 or by texting “LPD” to 72727.
