Removing Canines

I don't have a problem with you removing your wisdom teeth but I strongly recommend you do not remove your canine (cuspid) teeth.  These teeth are very important both from a bite consideration and an esthetic consideration.  You would be creating a very big problem if these teeth were removed.  A consult with an orthodontist would be highly recommended.  Good luck.
