The article investigates dental-arch space problems resulting from premature loss of a primary maxillary first molar. According to the authors, the early space changes to the maxillary arch subsequent to premature loss of a primary maxillary first molar are primarily distal drift of the primary canines toward the extraction space and palatal migration of the maxillary incisors.
