Keep your child away from sticky, chewy, hard, or crunchy foods, such as gum, caramels, Milk Duds, licorice, gummy bears, jelly beans, beef jerky, nuts, popcorn, ice, hard candies, jaw breakers, and corn on the cob, as these can break down the cement or distort the wires of the space maintainer.
Tell your child to avoid pulling on or poking the wire(s).
If your child’s space maintainer comes loose or breaks, call our office so we can evaluate and decide whether the appliance needs to be reinforced or rebuilt.

We are thrilled to announce The Brush Stop is officially seeing patients! Per the San Diego County Public Health Services Department, and the California Department of Public Health, we are temporarily limited in the number of patients we are permitted to see daily. Please understand that this is in the best interest of the public, in order to accommodate social distancing. We thank you for your continued patience with our team, as we work fervently to get your children in to visit us.
In the meantime, feel free to view our videos on our interim appointment protocol, as well as all the measures we are taking to help ensure your safety in our office.
With sincere gratitude,
Dr. Khoury and the team at The Brush Stop
