Caring for dental spacers

Following these do’s and don’ts will result in a durable dental spacer.



  • Floss regularly, but be careful around the spacer.
  • Brush gently to clean out any food particles that may be trapped.
  • Continue to schedule regular dental visits for checkups on the spacer.
  • Call your doctor if the dental spacer becomes loose for any reason.



  • Eat sticky foods like chewing gum or hard, crunchy foods like popcorn.
  • Push or pick at the dental spacer with the fingers or tongue.
