Space maintainers play a vital role of preserving arch space following premature loss of primary molars as well as longstanding cases of proximal caries. In day-to-day clinical practice, there exist conditions requiring both a space maintainer for passive space maintenance and a space regainer to solve the problem of space deficiency in different segments of the same arch. Taking this into consideration, the current study describes a modified space management appliance simultaneously acting as space maintainer and regainer.
