    is it necessary for me to have my 2 teeth extracted?

    Is it really necessary for me to have my two upper 5th teeth extracted?

    Probably not. My ortho had suggested the same. I refused to have perfectly healthy teeth pulled and I am glad I did. Pulling teeth can change your face. My ortho suggested going with invisalign since invisalign can successfully back teeth up to create the space I needed using a process called sequential distalization. So I did not have any extractions.

    If you want to further explore reasons not to pull teeth, google or youtube "functional orthodontics."

    You absolutely do not need teeth extracted. But still consult with dentist..

    An orthodontist suggesting pulling out teeth is a red flag for me. Seek a second (and third) opinion.

    My dentist told me I would need my widsom teeth (all four) pulled before getting braces. needless to say he's not my dentist anymore because I got braces without them being pulled! In the future I'll probably get my lowers out because they cause my grief from time to time, but my uppers haven't bothered me.
