Which Kind of Extractions Are Best for Bi-maxillary Protrusion?
My question is what is the difference between extracting first and second bicuspids for bi-maxillary protrusion? I saw two videos showing examples of the two types of extractions and it seems that with first bicuspid extractions, the lip retraction is more greater. I also noticed with second bicuspid extractions, the back teeth moves forward along with the front and thus less lip retraction. Is this right? Which one provides better profile ( I have a very full profile) results?
