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.
