Just wondering if anyones kids have “spacers” (can be known as teeth spacers). My 7 year old boy had to get 4 molar teeth romoved last year and they have to put spacers in to keep the hole open for his adult teeth. Problem is they keep falling out we are up to number 5 being replaced and at $150 to put back in, its quite expensive! I don’t let him have chewy lollies and now have cut back so much stuff. Just wanted to know if it has happened to anyone else kid/s

  • Great tips! There really interesting comments on this!

  • Would love to hear how you got on with this

  • I would be asking the dentist about the quality of them and why they keep falling out, especially if you are avoiding chewy/stick foods.

  • i think thats quite expensive…..

  • Wow, that is very expensive!

  • You would think they might start giving you a discount.

  • I hope you were able to shop around with dentists for a better price.

  • Wow that is very expensive

  • That is really expensive. Especially if they keep losing them

  • Hope you managed to find the answers you were after and all has gone well.

  • I had mine out as a kid and never had spacers…. hmmm

  • Wow have you asked your dentist what to do??

  • Wow, that is extremely expensive, especially considering the number of times they have fallen out. I had never heard of them before. I would definitely get a second opinion in this instance. I have had experiences with dentists being wrong before.

  • That seems very costly. Is it normal for them to be falling out that often?
