It really depends from case to case. Every mouth is different. And depends on the dentist as per the treatment plan laid by dentist.

Actually removing of the teeth is necessary only when your teeth are crowded or needs to be shifted back but there are no spaces between the teeth so extraction is a way by which we make space to shift the teeth in proper allignment.
