orthodonist refusal to remove braces until debt paid

I owe the othodonist $3,100 and am behind in payments.

My daughter is wearing braces fitted by the orthodonist.

He will not remove the braces until the entire amount is paid in full. That could mean six months to one year she will have to wear the braces beyond the time they were scheduledto come off. Is this means of collecting a debt legal? Its seems like extortion.
