    Usually we remove the "first bicuspids" which are just after the cuspids. Front two are central incisors, left and right of them are lateral incisors, then cuspids. The 4th tooth from the central line is the first bi. After removal, thete is room to move the other teeth into a suitable position. Bear in mind  later your "wisdom teeth", or third molars will also need to be removed.
