I have really bad overcrowding. Should I go for Fastbraces or traditional braces? (photos)

I'm 21. An orthodontist I've met suggested I do Fastbraces without any extractions. I've seen many not-good, online comments about Fastbraces from orthodontists. However, I worry that if I do traditional braces, I'll have to extract some of my teeth near the front and my wisdom teeth (2 have not come out yet). My teeth looks really hideous and I just really wish my teeth to look great. And the Fastbraces are said to only take a year to fix my teeth. Any suggestions? Thank you very very much!!!

Expansion Orthopedics with the DNA Appliance is best course of action.

You have a grossly underdeveloped maxilla which also creates a ver small airway.  The DNA Apliance orthopedically grows your maxilla and pneuopedically grows your airway utilizing Epigenetic Orthodontics.

DO NOT LET ANYONE AMPUTATE FOUR TEETH!!!

Expansion orthopdeics/orthodontics creates a healthier physiology contraction orthodontics creates an unphysiologic condition of jaws and airways and increases risks or TMJ disorders, headaches, migraines, poor posture, snoring and sleep apnea
