A Maryland bonded dental bridge isn't usually performed on children. Sometimes a child may lose a primary tooth prematurely or need to have a tooth pulled because of decay or injury. In that case, a space maintainer is usually used to keep the space open until the permanent tooth comes in. In rare cases, a child has a genetic condition where he has no permanent teeth in part of the jaw. In this case a removable partial denture may be used until the child is an adult, when Maryland bonded dental bridge can be put in instead.
