Fixed space maintainers come in 2 categories: Unilateral and bilateral space maintainers.

Unilateral maintainers: These maintainers are usually on one of the sides and replace a single tooth. Unilateral type can be either is of distal shoe type, band & loop type or crown and loop type. Distal shoe type is commonly preferred when the permanent molar has not yet erupted.

Bilateral maintainers: they are normally called as lingual arch. They are supported by the back teeth and are connected by a wire. The wire is located to the back of the incisors. This particular configuration can eliminate the need of 2 unilateral maintainers. Another configuration is known as the Nance space maintainer. This specific maintainer makes use of an acrylic button on a maxillary spacer.

Removable space maintainers: These kinds of maintainers are similar to the orthodontic maintainers. In these appliances, a plastic device is used to prevent any sort of drifting action. Hence, these appliances are quite helpful.
