Can I Eat While Weaing Invisalign?

Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth - VA

While undergoing an Invisalign® treatment, it’s important to take some simple steps to maintain your aligners. This keeps them clean and ensures they’re effective at subtly re-aligning your teeth and bite. One of the simplest things you can do is to remove your aligners while eating.

In short, the answer to the question that serves as the title to this post is “no.” You should not eat while wearing your Invisalign® aligners.

Fortunately, removing a set of aligners is incredibly simple and takes just a few seconds. One of the reasons Invisalign® is so widely preferred over traditional metal braces is that you don’t have to worry about getting food stuck in your aligners. You simply pop out the aligners, enjoy your meal, then pop the aligners right back in.

Simplicity and convenience are key to how Invisalign® works. This technology is designed to be as simple and easy-to-use as possible, because it’s widely understood that such simplicity will reduce frustrations, ensuring that you follow through with your treatment until it’s completed.
