Will I get my palate expander?

So, I've ordered a palate expander from bracesshop about two weeks ago, and they should start the production soon. Is it possible that they won't start it now and wait until the coronavirus is over? 

I know that it's not the most important thing rn, but still I want to know what to expect.

I think they're still operational despite corona virus. It can take a long time to receive the expander, though, so at least be prepared to wait a good while.

You mean extra time other than what I would have to wait normally?

Thanks for replying!

Maybe, maybe not. I think it takes around a 2 months at the earliest to receive your appliance from the time you send your impressions (one month to, one month fro), but I've been waiting longer, because of various problems. For example, my first teeth impressions didn't arrive in China at all. When I made new ones, I sent them through an alternative route that BracesShop provided me with (through email) to make sure that they'd be delivered the second time, and shipment through this route has been taking quite a while (fortunately, though I've received a notification that my appliance has been produced and shipped out). It's possible that coronavirus is slowing down shipment, but who knows. Others haven't had the problems that I did, so maybe I've just been unlucky. Maybe you'll get your device on time, but accept the contingency that it might be delayed.

Is it important that you receive the expander on time, or are you just looking forward to using it?

It is somewhat important, because I wanted to expand my palate before I get braces and I only get insurance for braces if I start them before I'm 18. I don't know what to do now, but I am not going into the city until the coronavirus is over, that's for sure.

I've already shipped the impressions tho, but they're stuck in customs.

I ordered mine on January 15th... so 2 months ago. I should be recieving it soon. I'm just hoping they don't delay the process cause I've been waiting so long for it and I just wanna expand my palate fast lol.

Don't go into this with a hot-headed mindset; be patient. The speed with which you expand is crucial, as I understand, so make sure to research it. "Semi-rapid" expansion is the best strategy, I think.

Ugh that must have been really annoying, I'm sorry  :/

 

@Elwynn

Semi-rapid is 1 turn/day?
