Abstract

Orthodontics, is rich in it's history as well as controversies. Controversies unlike disputes, never end and cannot be resolved completely validating any one side of the argument through scientific evidence. One such controversy is extraction vs non-extraction. The last two decades has seen noticeable decline of extraction in orthodontic treatment. This is augmented with increased pressure from the referring dentist to treat the patient without extraction treatment modality, being unaware of the literature supportive of extractions in specific cases. This review provides a summary of historical background of the controversy, the perspectives of various authors, the reasons for decline in extractions and the present understanding of the debate.
