It depends on how the teeth are positioned and what your orthoodontist's plans are for how he/she is going to straighten your teeth. I have braces and I didn't need to have teeth pulled. I know somebody who did have to get teeth pulled though. That is the best advice that I can give you though. I hope I answered your question.
