Denovo’s Chairside Space Maintainer System
Primary dentition plays an important role in pediatric dentistry. Premature loss or extraction of primary molars can have significant detrimental effects because of tooth drift. Maintaining space is critical, but it requires early and quick intervention. Traditional methods involve multiple appointments, impressions, and significantly time-consuming and expensive custom lab work.
The Denovo chairside space-maintainer system streamlines the process of creating and installing a custom unilateral, band and loop space maintainer. You can complete this 3-step process chairside in just minutes with only one patient visit while the patient is still numb from extraction:
— Firstly, you trial fit a Space Maintainer band or crown.
— Secondly, you’ll insert a wire, size to the gap & crimp the tubes.
— And then finish by cementing the appliance in place.
No more dealing with the time-consuming hassle of multiple appointments and expensive lab devices! With the Denovo chairside space-maintainer system you can quickly guide the way for erupting permanent teeth, resulting in an efficient workflow, healthy smiles and happy patients.
Start by selecting 1 to 3 approximate band or crown sizes from the Denovo Space Maintainer kit and then trial fit them to the tooth neighboring the space. A properly fitted band will slide onto the tooth with a tight, snug fit. The stronger the fit, the more durable the device will be. If you trial size a band but do not fully place it, you should sterilize the band and put it back into the kit for future use.
Wires widths are narrow or wide to match the smaller and larger band or crown size ranges respectively. We color-code band sizes in the kit according to the matching wire. Select the wire type based on the clinical situation presented:
– Drop wires: curve upward to prevent drifting of the wire into the gingiva.
— Plain wires: are highly customizable, with the ability to adapt to most clinical situations.
— Occlusal rest wires: provide added stability and support by bending over the occlusal ridge.
— Distal Shoe: With proper placement and x-ray verification, you can seat distal shoe wires sub-gingivally if the first permanent molar has not fully erupted yet.
Trim the chosen wire (as necessary) and then insert into the tubes. Re-seat the appliance and slide the wire across the gap to save the space. Adding curvature to the loop to the natural contour of the gingiva helps prevent the wire from drifting into the gingiva. Apply a solid, circular crimp to both tubes to firmly lock the wires into place. Finally, cement the finished device into place using your preferred glass ionomer cement.
