Can I Eat and Drink with Invisalign?
4 September 2023
Embarking on an Invisalign journey means you’re taking steps towards achieving a confident smile without the need for traditional braces. One of the appealing aspects of Invisalign aligners is their convenience, which extends to your daily eating and drinking habits.
Eating with Invisalign
Invisalign aligners are designed to be removable, making mealtime hassle-free. Unlike traditional braces, you won’t need to worry about avoiding certain foods that could potentially damage brackets or wires. You can simply remove your aligners before eating, allowing you to enjoy your favourite foods without restrictions.
Drinking with Invisalign
Just as with eating, you can easily drink with Invisalign aligners. Water can be consumed while wearing the aligners, so you won’t need to remove them for a quick sip. However, it’s recommended to remove the aligners when consuming sugary, acidic, or coloured beverages such as coffee, tea, or juices. This prevents the risk of staining or damaging the aligners.
Cleaning Your Aligners
Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial during your Invisalign journey. You should remove your aligners before each meal and brush your teeth before putting them back in. It’s also important to clean your aligners regularly using a soft toothbrush and lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water, as it can warp the aligners.
Tips for a Successful Invisalign Experience
- Plan Meals: Try to plan your meals and snacks to minimise the time your aligners are removed.
- Carry a Case: Keep a protective case with you to store your aligners when you’re not wearing them.
- Stay Hydrated: Drink water frequently to maintain oral health and prevent dry mouth.
- Clean Before Reinserting: Always clean your teeth and rinse your aligners before putting them back in.
Invisalign aligners offer the flexibility to enjoy your meals and drinks while working towards your dream smile. By following proper hygiene practices and guidelines, you can ensure a successful and comfortable Invisalign experience.

What Our Patients Say
Dr Nell is a fantastic dentist. Jolly, reassuring, and extremely knowledgeable. I am sad to be leaving and moving out of the area, as he and his team are outstanding.
Fantastic! Extremely welcoming and very friendly, great advice, very professional, sensible pricing. I’m a new customer and like many perhaps anxious moving to a new practice, but I felt completely at ease and comfortable throughout, it’s refreshing to have ‘old school’ service and logical advice. I can highly recommend these ladies and gents! 😁
Honestly after 10 years of never going to dentist due to fear, im so happy i came here after my sisters recommendation. Helena is amazing, she made me feel at ease, was very patient with me. Finally i can go to dentist without a complete meltdown.Thank you so much for helping me.

Joined this new local dental practice on 10/5/23 and had my 6 monthly checkup with dentist, having previously filled out online health questionnaire & having had my dental history sent from previous practice. It was the most thorough checkup ever. Everyone was very caring & very professional. Very informative Dentist, charming dental nurse and friendly reception staff. Booked hygienist for the following week. Very impressed with my first visit. Its very local to me which is a bonus. Would definitely recommend the practice.Thank you Coniston.
Wonderfull dentist and hygenist services here.. used to come as a kid and after a recent visit with my mother with disability issues I have chosen to get back on their books.. Everyone from front of house through to the doctors has been so pleasant to deal with making what could possibly be something quite stressful nice and simple
