If one starts from a (4 + n)-dimensional spacetime, it is necessary to obtain an effective 4 dimensional (4D) theory by hiding the extra n space-like dimensions. The most widely used method is to make these extra dimensions so small that 4D experiments so far performed could not have proved their existence.
