What Can You Eat With Invisalign?

Let’s get to the basics first. Like traditional braces, Invisalign is another alignment method. However, it doesn’t make use of wire and metal brackets. Invisalign uses aligners that you place over your teeth, designed to straighten your teeth and perfect your smile.

Invisalign aligners are clear, less invasive, and most importantly, they’re removable! Yep, that means you eat and drink anything you want! There’s only one major rule: You need to remember to remove your aligners first before eating and drinking. Don’t forget to put them back after brushing and cleaning your teeth! Invisalign should be worn 20-22 hours a day to be effective, so it's important to only remove your aligners for eating and drinking anything but water. As long as you remember the rule, there aren’t any off-limits foods.

If you’re wondering if you can eat with your Invisalign aligners in, the answer is no. Eating with your aligners can damage it, and a damaged aligner might not fit your teeth properly. Not even soft foods! While soft foods themselves may not cause damage, chewing, and biting can. It’s always better to remove your aligners first before eating anything.

Zero food restrictions are one of the many benefits of Invisalign clear aligners. Just remember the major rule then you’re free to eat and drink anything you want
