both orthodontists are right.
op1 extraction - orthodontist will use regular braces.
op2 extraction - orthodontist will use damon wire / braces > expansion of arches.
so if u r comfortable with extraction go for regular braces, if u want wide hollywood smile go for damon braces.
change in arch form [widen arch] increases relapse tendency.
