Extractions

Extractions are one of the most controversial areas of orthodontics and dentistry.

Dr Vaughan’s previous experiences of working for a practice where nearly all patients had extractions showed him poor results and he was not happy with the outcome. For this reason Dr Vaughan tries to avoid extractions as much as possible. Extractions are necessary for a very small group of patients, however these need to be chosen carefully and the extractions performed at the correct age and stage of treatment.
