Now is the Perfect Time to get Braces
Aside from the orthodontist visits and the mouth discomfort, one of the reasons people often decide against getting braces is the embarrassment. And while there is no shame in wanting to improve your smile, a societal stigma does exist that makes people reluctant to get braces. However, now might be the perfect time to do so. With all of the negatives brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, one positive may be the fact wearing a mask will cover your mouth from people seeing your braces. Here's why it's the perfect time to get braces.
A mask will cover your mouth
With the second wave of pandemic impacting the lives of people all over the country, most people are quarantining inside their homes. This means they are around fewer people. And when they are around people, they are usually wearing a mask — whether they are in public walking on the street, at a doctor's appointment, at work or the gym, and on public transportation.
If you aren't satisfied with your smile and have considered getting braces in the past, you should reconsider now because they will have limited exposure to the public's eyes. You will be able to transform your smile without feeling self-conscious. In addition, you will be able to do all of the maintenance for your braces in the luxury of your own home instead of in public, at a restaurant, or at school or work.
When the pandemic is over
The best bit? When the pandemic is over and you are finally allowed to be in public without a mask, you'll have a brand new smile. And, you will have skipped any feelings of self-consciousness.
