The first orthodontist that I went to recommended that I have two teeth removed, but the second (the one I ended up using) said he didn't think I needed them removed. I did have my wisdom teeth out before getting the braces on though, but that was my dentists recommendation.
:D

My laterals were behind my other teeth. This made the ortho a little unsure of keeping them. In the initial consultation, he said skeptically, "we're gonna try to do this without extractions". Luckily everything worked out well!

I had 4 first bicuspids extracted before my treatment (plus my four lovely impacted wisdom teeth). I do know that a lot of treatments are completed now without extractions but I don't know how that could have worked in my case. Not only did I have a lot of crowding but I seem to have a small mouth and larger teeth so there just isn't room for a full set. I fear my daughter is going to run into the same problem UNLESS my hubby's good genes strike again.

I had 8 teeth removed. My othodontist wanted to take out 4 at the sides to straighten my teeth. Then my dentist suggested taking out my second molars, which needed crowns, and pulling my wisdom teeth along to replace them. I went with that suggestion, even though the orthodontist said he could only move the wisdoms half way over into the space created. I now think it was a big mistake, as I find the gaps between my teeth wisdoms and the first molars huge and its difficult to eat.
