I only have 12 teeth in each jaw, 4 extractions as part of this orthodontic work (aged 47) and the rest - impacted canines on the top and impacted wisdoms on the bottom removed as a teen. If only I (and/or my Mum) had been more aware as a teen of what could be done! Ortho said if I was younger (i.e. still growing, I could have avoided 2 of the extractions now but my jaws are still tiny. Its strange as for a female I am huge!! I am 6 feet 2 tall and my leg bones go way up to here.....so why are my jaws so tiny LOL.

I've had a total of 8 extracted.

As a teenager I had 3 extracted to prepare for braces (then chickened out and did not get braces). :(

20 years later, I recently had 5 extracted - one wisdom & 4 second premolars - to prepare for braces (this time I'm NOT chickening out). :D

I am also missing 7 permanent teeth:
- Permanent upper lateral incisors
- Permanent upper second bicuspids
- Permanent lower second bicuspids
- Permanent lower right second molar

Along with 3 wisdom teeth (third molars) - but who cares about these - they usually get extracted anyways! :lol:

I feel ike such a loooooser! I had six out (4 impacted wisdoms and 2 lower 1st pre-molars), i thought that was bad enough!!

Hey, SideKick3QT-you're having yours out on my birthday :-)o Good day for me, not so good day for you! (Don't worry though, you will be fine-i had mine out 3 days before my 21st birthday, but it wasn't too bad)
Good luck for then :)

I had 6 out for my brace but already had one out a long time ago - that doesn't include any wisdom teeth, I now have 12 teeth on each jaw (not including wisdom as they are only partly erupted)

I had 2 baby teeth pulled as part of my first round of braces. They all got replaced by permanent ones eventually. Later, before my second round of braces I had my 4 wisdoms out so I guess you could say I'm pretty normal.

I've had 9 extractions and need 2 more! So it will be a total of11 extractions

I had 4 premolars +2 wisdom teeth,1bottom front incisor,2 of my second molars also pulled.

For my ortho treatment I actually needed 4 premolars .
The bottom incisor had to be taken out because of boneloss would not support the braces and I would lose it eventually . I am holding out on getting the top wisdom teeth taken out and my ortho said it was not urgent that I needed them out.
