My son has crowded upper and lower teeth. So, I have been to two orthodontists yesterday, and I got different opinions from both of them. One said we do not need to remove any teeth, however, his upper teeth will come little forward and will not cause much deformation in his face. The other one said, I would not take the case unless you agree to remove four teeth, which I have marked in red, in the attached x-ray. As per him, there is no way to make these teeth straight without removing the teeth. I am really confused on who is correct. Can you please provide your opinion?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I can understand your state of confusion. I have seen the x-ray (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It can be quite difficult to decide. So, I will give you information about both line of orthodontic treatments and the reason behind them.
