Q.

Skew teeth

My Daughter needs braces. She seems to suffer from overcrowding. She was supposed to get 4 teeth removed and then braces. However, I cannot afford braces at this stage. Do you think having the 4 teeth removed in the meanwhile will help. She is 17yrs old.

Definitely not- this may compound the problem later.
Do the extractions ONLY when you are ready for the braces
