Is teeth extraction necessary for front teeth straightening? I have heard a number of Cons of teeth extraction. I am asking this question for a female 26 years age.She has already gone to 2 year brace treatment.Thanks
Extraction is done to provide desired space for movement of teeth in orthodontic treatment ,since she is already undergoing treatment this ust have been assessed by the treating dental surgeon .You are advised to consult some expert orthodontist for further treatment.Wearing braces
Its not necessary to extract teeth for teeth straightening if we found sufficient space to move ur teeth & if there is no space b/w the teeth then yes we have to go for extraction first, thats all depend on the teeth positioning
Extraction for orthodontic treatment is not indicated in every case.If there is deficiency of space for proper alignment of teeth .Then only extraction is done. Or a tooth that cannot be aligned even with ortho wires.
Don`t Worry .Any orthodontist who has advised extraction will never advise , until and unless req. For the treatment.
If u still carry any doubt.U can always go for 2nd opinion at some other clinic.
Tooth extraction is often, but not always necessary for tooth straightening. It depends upon the status at the start of treatment. Also, if necessary, it is a perfectly safe procedure with a minimal risk of complications.
Please do not worry. Extractions are absolutely not necessary for teeth straightening. We do a number of cases if Smile Designing or Smile Makeovers where we are able to bring about massive corrections in the smile without doing any extractions at all. Also, since she has already undergone braces treatment, it all the more does not make any sense to go for extractions now. Please let me know if you need any further clarifications or photographs of how such corrections can be achieved.
Sir teeth extraction is done to create space so that the teeth move back into that space , so it depends on the case whether the teeth have to be extracted or not .Its not mandatory in all cases
