The Need for Extractions
While you do have a significant amount of crowding between your lower front teeth, making the decision to extract is not done solely by looking at pictures. A close evaluation of your orthodontic X-rays is also necessary. If all of your diagnostics records deem extractions as needed, then it is best to follow your orthodontist's treatment recommendation.
