Do i need extractions for braces? an orthodontist wants me to get 4 teeth extracted, but i’m afraid my lip will sink in because of the extra room. This orthodontist said that, if i didn’t get them out, my teeth will straighten but stick out! I got all my wisdom teeth removed but he wants me to get extractions still. Also, i visited another orthodontist and he said i don\’t need 4 extractions because my lip will sink in. Do i need extractions yes or no? what is your opinion on this?
