Braces Questions with Dr. Herman

Question: Is it necessary to get teeth removed to achieve a straight smile and a better bite? 

Answer: My experience has been that it’s almost never necessary to remove healthy teeth to get straight smile or an improved bite when using technology like the high-tech H-4 System of Braces. I strongly recommend that a person get a second opinion if they’ve been told that healthy permanent teeth needed to be pulled in order to get braces. Call 1-800-4BRACES for your free consultation.
