How do you eat with them?

You can take out your aligners to eat which is one of the top reasons people choose Invisalign.

This means that you don’t need to follow a special diet or stay away from your favourite foods while you are having your orthodontic treatment.

Simply pop your aligner out to eat and put it back in again once you’ve finished!

It’s a good idea to brush your teeth after eating, before you start wearing your brace again.

Is there anything I can’t eat when I’m wearing my Invisalign brace?

It’s recommended to take your aligner out while you eat however it’s also important to avoid the following when you’re wearing your brace:

  • sugary drinks / alcohol / beer / wine
  • smoking and nicotine products
  • chewing gum

It’s best to take out your Invisalign aligner while drinking, using nicotine products or chewing gum so as not to damage your aligner or your teeth.

How do I take care of my aligners?

Our orthodontists recommend that you clean your aligners daily with lukewarm water.

There are Invisalign Cleaning Crystals or special cleaning tablets available specifically for cleaning braces and aligners.

You could also use a small amount of toothpaste to brush your aligner gently to freshen it up.

Remember to put your Invisalign brace in the case when you’re not using it to protect it from damage.


How often do I need to brush my teeth?

It is essential to keep your teeth clean and healthy by following a regular oral care routine including brushing, flossing and mouthwash.

We recommend brushing your teeth in the morning and before bed as well as after every meal.

What if I lose my aligner?

If you lose a set, get in touch with your orthodontist as soon as possible to organise a replacement.

Invisalign teeth straightening braces must be worn at least 20 – 22 hours a day for the best results.

Will the aligners affect my speech?

 You might need some time to adjust when you first start wearing your aligner.

However once you get used to wearing your Invisalign brace it’s very unlikely that it will affect your speech. Find out more about the treatment process.
