Start Braces Behind the Mask

Have you been thinking about getting braces but are worried about how you’ll look? It’s natural to be apprehensive about changes to your appearance. That’s why, now might be the ideal time to get started.

Why? The face covering or mask you are currently asked to wear in public due to COVID-19 provides you with an opportunity to get used to how you look with braces. If you worry about what other people will think, they won’t know, at least for a while. By the time you no longer wear your mask, you’ll be used to having braces and how you look in them.

Most people adjust to how they look with braces in a couple of days. It’s really not any different than how you feel when you get a new hairstyle. The first few times you look in the mirror you notice and then suddenly what was new is now normal. You look and feel like yourself.

Patient Safety and Treatment
We understand and want to assure you that your health and safety are our highest concern. Dr. Crutchfield and the OBC crew are happy to answer any questions you may have about starting treatment during COVID-19.

Keeping patient safety at the forefront, we have limited the number of in-office appointments we are seeing and have put additional safety protocols in place – such as closing our reception area.
