Ask yr orthodontist: The orthodontic extractions are recommended, typically is because of either an overbite or severe crowding is present. Ask your orthodontist if expansion or temporary anchors are right for you. Good luck.

Premolar: The extraction of a premolar should not cause any TMJ issues... you most probably developed the problem due to other causes. An examination by a local dentist with knowledge regarding TMJ causes and treatment will shed some light on how to treat your condition. All the best...
