1. Eating With Them In
One of the first pieces of advice your dentist in Aberdeen will give you with Invisalign is to never eat with the aligners. You must wear the trays at least 20 to 22 hours a day to see results. However, those two to four hours they can be “out” are for eating, cleaning your teeth, and the occasional photo.
Firstly, eating with your Invisalign will be uncomfortable. Secondly, chewing while they are in your mouth will create too much pressure on them. This can cause damage to the trays. They can also get unnecessarily dirty.
There are instances where you may feel as if you are “on the go” or “in hurry”. However, taking the time to remove your Invisalign before each meal and snack time is worth it. Damaging this treatment will affect your progress.
