If you're worried about diet restrictions during Invisalign treatment, you will be pleased to know that since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can continue to eat all your favorite foods without worry. Many adult patients appreciate the freedom of continuing to eat whatever they choose!
Eat Anything with Invisalign
Invisalign treatment is unique because unlike traditional orthodontics, you don't have to wear brackets that are attached to your teeth. Instead, Invisalign moves your teeth into the desired position with a series of clear removable plastic aligners. You wear each set for about two weeks and then graduate to the next set in the series.
You will continue to wear and switch your aligners until all the sets are used and your treatment is complete. The number of sets required to straighten teeth varies from person to person, but on average, it takes about 20 to 30 sets to provide the desired results.
In addition to being removable for meals, you can also take your trays out to brush and floss your teeth or for special occasions. But you must be sure to wear your them for at least 22 hours a day and commit to taking the aligners out only when necessary. Invisalign treatment is fast, but only if you wear your aligners as instructed by Dr. Amir or Dr. Sunny. Also, remember that wearing your retainer after treatment is necessary if you want to maintain the results!
