I'm 18 year old I had braces 2 years before and I had extracted first set of 4 premolars will it cause rejection in army?

No if only those four r missing n you have a good occlusion.
I do not know about army rules.
No it will not. While counting dental points in army, it is perfectly alright having less number of teeth as long as remaining teeth are in good condition (no decay, filled already decayed tooth, rct etc.)
you need minimum 16 dental points to be fit for army selection. extraction of 4 premolars reduces 2 points. if you have all remaining teeth erupted and in proper bite you are fit
I don't think It will create any problem in Army selection, because the gap between teeth is closed after treatment.

no it will not, after Extraction of all premolor you have 28 healthy teeth, so you will get 28 point.
