Extraction for Braces
I have had braces for 8 months and have 4-5 months more. My orthodontist has advised me to extract 4 teeth in order to get perfect result. I really want to have the perfect teeth, he says if I don't extract 4 teeth, there would be still a little crowding left. So I just want to know, will the 4 extractions have any side effects or disadvantages, like chewing in long-run? I want my teeth to be straight, but if there are any side effects or future problems, I'm fine with a little crowding. And are there any problems such as eyesight problems, or facial structure issues with 4 extractions??

Hi..no in orthodontic extraction,only those teeth are removed ( 1st premolars) which have very less role in chewing,facial features and cosmetic concerns. So no need to worry. Go ahead and get the teeth aligned properly with extraction. Regards

No. 4 premolar extractions are frequently done for orthodontic treatment and will not affect either your eyes or your chewing efficiency in short or long term.
