About to Get Braces For Crooked Teeth, Will Extractions Speed Up or Slow Down Process?

I have an overbite my teeth are crowded . My orthadontist said that they might end up extracting some of my teeth but he wanted to give braces a try first. Has there been cases where braces can fix an over bite with crowded teeth without extracting any teeth? If I do get teeth removed, will it speed up or slow down straightening of teeth?
