  • When the overlapped and protruded teeth are aligned they need space for the alignment and for that the extraction has to be done. In such cases the premolars are pulled out and the space created by them is filled by the movement of the teeth.So if the dentist says that the teeth has to be removed then you have to get them removed for the best results.For more info on braces you can visit te following link........http://www.identalhub.com/article_choosing-right-type-of-braces-159.aspx
