There are a few helpful tips you should bear in mind if you have chosen Invisalign as your method of treatment. One of the most important things to keep in mind is that with your Invisalign aligners, you will have less food restrictions and you can eat and drink with comfort. Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign aligners allow you to eat whatever you want as you can remove them before eating.
Here are some few tips that can help you take care and get the most out of your Invisalign aligners.
Can I Eat While Wearing Invisalign Aligners?
As previously discussed, taking out your Invisalign aligners before eating is necessary for you to eat comfortably. Unlike the case with regular braces, you are not limited in what you can eat. Foods like yogurt, eggs, or spaghetti are all wonderful choices when it comes to food choices while getting acquainted with your new Invisalign aligners.
How Should I Take Care of My Aligners?
Prior to putting your aligners back in your mouth after each meal, make sure you clean and floss your teeth. You increase your risk of developing bacteria if you put your Invisalign aligners back in your mouth after eating without brushing or cleaning them. Foods naturally contain sugar, which sticks to the surface of your teeth, which can eventually lead to tooth decay. It is advisable to clean your teeth before putting back your aligners in order to prevent the spread of bacteria.
Can I Drink While Wearing My Invisalign Aligners?
It is best that you take out your aligners before drinking, just like when you take them out before eating. The main reason for this is that consuming certain beverages, like coffee or wine, will most likely stain your invisible aligners. Additionally, hot beverages like tea or coffee can potentially change the shape of the aligners, making them insignificant.
