My spacer fell out 2 days after i got it. The one that was next to it feels sorta lose. What should I do??
One of my spacers fell out. It was to make room for expander, I've had it in for 12 days, will it make a difference?

If you put the spacer in and it keeps falling out then the spacer is working as it has created a space which your doctor wants.

Need: For many of my patients, I do not need spacers, as i will not require the space to place a band. Modern orthodontics more and more uses a fully bonded appliance: no ring to go around a back tooth unless i need it for a special situation.
