Does having clear aligner trays limit what you can eat?

Great news! Invisalign lets you eat like normal: whatever you want, whenever you want. Simply remove your trays, enjoy your food and rinse or brush before popping your trays back in. Having removable trays means that you can pop them out whenever you’re hungry.

When It Comes to Eating, Invisalign Way Better Than Braces

We’ve all seen a kid with braces try to eat a burger. After a few bites, their braces are full of squished food. Yuck! Unlike braces, Invisalign aligner trays don’t limit what you eat or when you eat. Having clear trays instead of brackets and wires means that you don’t finish eating with teeth full of stuck food.

Invisalign also doesn’t limit the kinds of food you can eat like braces do. With braces, you’re supposed to avoid tortilla chips, hard candy or anything else that can damage a bracket. With Invisalign, you’ll want to chew carefully to not knock off any attachments, but you can eat what you’d like. Woohoo!

Eat Gently on Day 1 of Each Tray

For the first day or so with each new tray set, your teeth will feel more tender and you may not want to go chowing down on hard candy or beef jerky. This tenderness goes away and eating harder-to-chew things won’t damage your teeth, it simply won’t be as comfortable as normal.

  • This is a great place, if your looking definitely choose them. The staff is always helpful and everyone is so nice. Best place to have your dental work done ๐Ÿ˜

  • I came to my initial consultation wondering why a consultation was necessary - and I was blown away by the level of care. From the initial phone call, to the waiting room and staff experience, to the consultation and proceeding X-rays - everyone was wonderful. Dr. Bec and staff are incredible, and far exceeded any expectations that I had. Dr. Bec is welcoming, honest, transparent, thorough, detailed, and took the time to go over every single aspect of our teeth, as well as concerns/solutions. His staff is very kind and attentive also. (Even the music in the waiting room is lovely!) The amount of time and care was amazing, as I'm used to being shuffled in and out. I very rarely leave reviews. But this is one place I will review, and I do struggle to understand how anyone could give Precision Cosmetic Dentistry a negative review.

  • This was by far the best dental experience I have ever had! Dr Bec treated me with genuine care as a person, not just as a potential customer and explained very thoroughly all of the expectations for becoming his patient. He also was very patient and answered all of my questions and some more ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm very happy with my first visit there (all the receptionists were wonderful as well and everyone made me feel like family). I feel like I have found a gem in the dentist industry and I look forward to continuing with Dr Bec!

  • So as a first time patient with Dr. Bec, I fully appreciated his honesty, his professionalism, friendliness and patience with or towards me. The whole office experience was excellent. All the ladies I encountered were professional and nice.

  • We were very pleased with the service my husband received. Dr Bec was able to complete the repairs he needed. All the office staff is fabulous!
