My 7 y/o son is to have five teeth pulled tomorrow (d/t crowding) by his family dentist...He was referred to an orthodontist (by said dentist) who recommended this be done.

Is extracting this many teeth at once a common procedure?

Thanks

Very common, but SDN isn't a place to solicit second opinions. Closing.
