Tooth ExtractionAn Overview
Tooth extraction may be necessary for patients with overcrowding. When the jaw is too small, the primary teeth and molars may not have enough room to develop fully. If left as is, teeth may shift causing a crooked smile.
Tooth extractions are only used as part of a comprehensive orthodontic treatment plan. For some patients, braces will only be fully effective if a tooth is extracted to make room to shift the teeth into proper alignment.
