Protruding teeth. This would be determined by the orthodontist. It would depend on your bite, on the position of all of the other teeth, the amount and condition of the bone, and whether there is enough room to move the teeth into alignment. Your orthodontist will use models and x-rays to do a space analysis.
Extraction or not. It depends. If the bone of the upper arch of teeth are too far forward then extraction might be necessary. In most cases extraction is not needed. If the upper lip looks correct then removing upper teeth is contraindicated. If the front teeth are visible before you walk around the corner then it might be indicated. The orthodontist should be using the cephlometric xray analysis to decide.

Re.C: see your orthodontist for evaluation and functional braces treatment.
