Teeth extractions

Do we have to extract teeth during an orthodontic treatment?

During treatment we might need to extract some primary teeth, when they remain in the mouth too long. Extractions or not of permanent teeth is a very serious decision that the orthodontist has to make. In certain cases such as when there is a disharmony between teeth and jaws or when the extractions are made necessary by the skeletal development of the face.
The timing of the extraction and the teeth that will be extracted are determined by the orthodontist who is responsible for the decision.
