I am a 28-year old professional who’s planning to undergo Invisalign. I have very crowded teeth and have never experienced tooth extractions. If I were to undergo orthodontic treatment, will I need to extract my premolars or wisdom teeth? What are the benefits of tooth extraction, are they absolutely necessary, and what are the extra costs of this? Kei, Bukit Tunku
My six-year old son is losing his baby teeth. Although most of his baby teeth are falling out normally, his adult front tooth is beginning to erupt behind his baby tooth. This overlapping baby tooth is starting to turn brown and the adult tooth behind this baby tooth is erupting abnormally. I understand that my son will need to extract this baby tooth but I’m also wondering if he may or may not need braces later due to the abnormal eruption of the adult tooth. Claire, Hartamas
Great dentists make the best of what a patient has got.
