Teeth Straightening

Eating and Drinking with Invisalign – Everything you Need to Know!

One of the many great advantages to using Invisalign to straighten your teeth is that they don’t interfere with your life.

The clear retainers provide you with a near invisible way to straighten your teeth so you don’t have to worry about any social awkwardness around wearing traditional, metal braces.

Invisalign involves wearing clear aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. You’re able to remove the aligners, but it’s advised that anyone wearing Invisalign aligners tries to keep them in for up to 22 hours a day as standard.

A small adjustment

One of the main adjustments Invisalign wearers have to make when getting used to life with Invisalign is how to eat and drink. It’s a small adjustment to make but it’s usually advised to remove your Invisalign aligners whenever you eat. This is mainly done to protect them.

They’re made of thin plastic and chewing on particularly tough or crunchy food runs the risk of cracking or distorting your aligners, adding time and expense to your treatment.

Eating with Invisalign

Because your aligners are completely and easily removable it means that you are not in any way restricted from enjoying all the foods that you love – just simply take your aligners out and keep them in a safe place. You can even buy special aligner cases to keep them clean and safe for the time that you don’t have them in.

Drinking with Invisalign

You can drink with your aligners in and most drinks shouldn’t be a problem. However, as with your teeth themselves, darker drinks such as coffee and red wine can stain, so it’s worth considering taking them out if you enjoy a cheeky glass of red wine or can’t go without your morning caffeine fix!

You can see that it really is possible to live the life you enjoy while still benefitting from the incredible power of the Invisalign system. Making a small adjustment to your lifestyle means that you get all of the positives associated with this transformative system and you can achieve your perfect smile.
