Increase of braces due to masks
« on: 10. January 2021, 16:01:18 PM »
Has anybody noticed more people getting braces or invisalign due to the fact that they could be hid easily? I’ve seen 2 of my friends just recently get braces to mix some minor things and both had said along the lines of what better a time than now because nobody will be able to tell due to the masks

Hi
I didn't notice on other people, but I did it that way myself. For me it's a combination of the possibility to hide through a mask, but also to the limits in travelling and so on. Last year I decided to go the jacobian trail through spain, but wanted to do this in 2021. Now it does not look like to be possible, instead I started my treatment last year. It would have been better to start a few month earlier, but it was not possible to get an appointment at the dentist's.
This year I won't start my journey also because of the braces. If something breaks like it did now the third time in 11 days, I could not let repair it. On the other side brushing teeth is much more time-consuming and not possible without a mirror. So I will do after my treatment or not ????

A few of my friends took this approach and like the privacy a mask gives
