BitMap Image This photograph shows an example of a fixed bilateral space maintainer. The patient is four years of age. The appliance is cemented on the two second primary molars. Fixed bilateral space maintainers on the mandibular arch often are called lingual arch space maintainers.

Mandibular fixed bilateral space appliances generally are preferred by clinicians over removable space maintainers. Fixed appliances are easier to maintain and they are less likely to be removed, damaged, or lost by the child.
