u have had braces for crowding a year ago. my upper teeth r almost staright. the ortho put my lower braces 6 months after the upper braces. now the problem is that my upper teeth have started to protrude out ,, looks like the teeth r sticking out, my upper jaw has also become prominent. pls note that i had no extractions. i talked about this to my ortho, he says he can only extract the teeth once the lower ones r completely aligned and plan the future treatment..im getting married in january 2013, im very upset as im not happy with the protruding problem..so can u guide me is my ortho's decision is right regarding the extraction or no..thanks ..

  • Yes ur dentist is correct as he need to align lower ones beforegoing for extraction of upper teeth.So dont worry have complete faith on ur dentist as before an orthodontist starts with the ortho treatment he always plans everything and then progresses with treatment and if something goes wrong he is capable of handling it so u dont worry much about ur treatment...........for more info refer the link..............http://www.identalhub.com/dental-braces-and-brackets-help-to-align-teeth-perfectly-845.aspx
