Not at all. Infact it is normally required in almost all orthodontic treatment. It is safe and has no side effects. The dentist needs space in your jaw to bring a symmetry in your dentition which is attained only when some teeth are extracted. Usually 4 teeth have to be extracted. 2 upper and 2 lower (one on each side) go ahead without any doubts.
Dear Lybrate user, sometimes, due to lack of available space for movement of teeth in order to align them, it is necessary to get certain teeth extracted. This decision is made after carefully analyzing your impression models and full mouth xrays. So you need not worry, go ahead with the treatment and enhance your smile.
