removal of permanent teeth for orthodontic treatment

The doctor doing orthodontic treatment of my son aged 11 years is suggesting the removal of 2 upper jaw permanent canines for facilitating the treatment. Please let me know whether the removal of permanent teeth as suggested by him is justified /advisable as the child will lose two teeth forever. He says otherwise the intended treatment will not be 100% successful. He has already taken full payment for the treatment. Kindly advise. more

Yes 75% of mal-alignment of teeth in mouth is due to lack of space. So many times its necessary to sacrifice 2 or 4 teeth to create space, depending upon clinical conditions.
So don't worry the space created will filled up in course of treatment. more  
Normally the canines are not removed ... Unless they are unfavourably impacted .. Best is to take a few opinions before u get Canines removed .. more
