Primary teeth play an important role in preventing malocclusion of permanent dentition.When there is prematureloss of primary teeth, the space shouldbe maintained for preserving the arch integrity and preventing space loss. Space maintainers are the treatment of choice in such conditions. The fixed space maintainers are usually indicated to maintain the space created by unilateral/bilateral premature loss of primary teeth in either of the arches.In this clinical scenario, we have modified the band and loop spacemaintainer with a pontic to make it a functional space maintainer.
