It depends on if your braces require a metal band or not on the back teeth. I didn't get them at first, but my back brackets kept falling off, so they put spacers in and a week later they put in metal bands. It really depends on the orthodontist.

Braces are designed to move your teeth into better alignment. A retainer is designed to keep your teeth in their current position following braces.

Removing teeth before or after putting braces?

Yes you can, you would have to arrange a visit with your orthodontist prior to seeing the dentist to remove the archwire, then after having the extractions done, you will need to go back to your orthodontist to get the archwire placed back in. Ring the orthodontist and talk to the receptionist about when your dentist appointment is and I'm sure they will make avail time for you. It doesn't take very long to replace an archwire. Hope this helps
