Take the Best Care of Your Invisalign® Aligners


It is common sense for you to remove your Invisalign® aligners when you eat food, otherwise it would be impossible to eat. But do you remove them when you drink? You might not think to do this, but you should because if you drink with your aligners in, it can put your teeth at risk for a variety of reasons.

Any type of beverage can become stuck in the tray. This means that your teeth are basically sitting in a bath of liquid. If this liquid has sugar in it, you are putting your teeth at risk for serious decay and disease. Even if the liquid does not have a high sugar content, if it is the least bit acidic, it will cause the enamel on your teeth to begin to wear down, putting you at risk for future decay.

Any temperature that is above room temperature can cause the aligners to become misshapen. Because the aligners are specifically made to fit the shape of your mouth and to promote straight teeth, the hot liquid would render them useless.

So the next time you consider drinking any liquid with your aligners in, rethink your decision. It only takes a matter of seconds to remove Invisalign trays. As long as you place them somewhere safe while you drink and rinse your mouth with water or better yet, brush your teeth when you are done, your teeth are at minimal risk for decay.
