One of the most stressful parts of this pandemic, is trying to find the appropriate gear to protect ourselves with, when we get back into the office.
We have been told that the N95 masks are the gold standard of mouth and nose protection.
But as everyone knows, these masks have been very difficult to come by.
For years, the dental profession has been working with scanners and with cad cam technology (3D printing).
One of the most important parts of these N95 masks has been the tight fit around the face. It should create a tight seal. The experts recommend “the peppermint test.”
You could have peppermint in the room and if the mask is properly fitted, you should not be able to smell the peppermint.
I have one N95 mask that I wear whenever I leave the house. I can say with confidence that my mask is not that well fitted. I am still able to smell intense smells.
One of my friends has come up with a pretty ingenious design, a custom fitted frame. One that fits the face intimately. This is how he does it…
He takes a facial scan of the person’s face with an iPhone10 or higher. Then he sends that file to his 3D printer and designs a custom fitted frame. This fitted frame is placed over a level 3 surgical mask, which are easier to find, and fastened tightly to the face.
If you would like to get one of these frames made, please message me and I’ll put you in contact with the labs that are designing these frames.
I love how America is coming together to figure out great solutions.
