This question is for my teeth. I am 24 years old male I have crooocked teeth since my childhood and now I have consulted a dentist to get braces and he says that in order to perfect teeth he have to remove my pre molar teeth because I do not have space in my lower jaw. So I am worried that removing teeth can cause gap or void that can not be fixed but he says he can but I am doubting it .so please tell me he is right.
The dentist have advice you correct treatement this is the correct treatment protocol and you do not have to worry for removing your teeth it is the normal procedure. Those teeth are removed to create space and make proper alignment of the teeth and give you beautiful smile.
No he is absolutely right, usually four premolar teeth have to be extracted to create space to push back the teeth. Eventually the space will be closed.
