My orthodontist removed one of the very center two bottom jaw teeth, and 3 more molars (since I have two). I got it removed and I am wondering will it affect my smile a lot? I heard how extractions can leave narrow smile, etc. but in my case I feel the end of world since I removed one tooth, and 3 more on my way. I'm also two months into braces. I should also mention I had receeding gum on that tooth.
Did I make right decision to have it extracted and will my smile be worse off? I also noticed a bit of swelling near my chin. Will that bump disappear by itself after two months of extraction, or will it stay permanent?
