ABSTRACT:
Introduction: Orthodontic therapy is a multi-visit procedure that lasts a long time. All dental governing agencies from around the world have agreed to reduce or remove basic dental operations and restrict dental services to just acute emergency cases owing to the global breakout of pandemic COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019). Orthodontic patients who were left untreated during this pandemic faced major consequences, both positive and negative.
Objective: In this article we have highlighted the positive and negative consequences that were encountered in ongoing orthodontic cases.
Conclusion: The positive and negative impacts of COVID 19 lockdown in ongoing orthodontic patients were demonstrated, with the negative effects outnumbering the positive ones.
