Braces and Tooth Removal

Starting on a journey to a straighter smile often involves considering various orthodontic treatments, and in some cases, the need for tooth removal may arise. While the idea of having a tooth removed might seem counterintuitive to achieving a perfect smile, there are valid reasons why this step is sometimes necessary for the braces treatment process and is a treatment decision that your specialist orthodontist will not take lightly. 

One common reason for tooth removal before getting braces is overcrowding. Overcrowded teeth occur when there isn’t enough space in the jaw for all the teeth to align properly. By strategically removing one or more teeth, orthodontists create the necessary space for the remaining teeth to move into their optimal positions with the help of braces.
