Will it hurt to eat soft things with the tray on?

No, It never disturbs you while brushing , eating and flossing. We can easily remove Invisalign Clear Braces whenever we want.

No it doesn't hurt to eat soft things but there are little pockets that food gets trapped in & some food stains the trays so you have to clean them after. I did it once & I wouldn't recommend it.

It won't hurt (unless your teeth are already tender from treatment) but you should ask your doctor if it's okay for you to eat while wearing the aligners. Most people's doctors say to take out the aligners to eat, but I know a handful whose doctors encourage them to eat with the aligner in. In either case, you should clean your teeth and trays thoroughly after eating.

I agree and had scrambled eggs today with a protein drink. I did take them out and rinsed the aligners and me mouth with peroxide right after. I eat more soft meals and have lost some weight as a result.

I've never done it, just the "ick" factor for me.

I don't think it hurts but as soon as you do, you have all these little food particles (who knew) floating inside your retainer and you have to go run and brush your teeth so it really doesn't help to keep it in cause you have to take it out immediately after.
