Can I have regular teeth cleaning by my dentist while also having Invisalign treatment?

When a patient is wearing traditional metal braces, one of the biggest challenges is keeping their teeth clean. The brackets would trap food and debris. The aligners from Invisalign come off any time a person wants, so eating and brushing is a "non event". The same applies for trips to the dentist, as the aligners can be removed for the entire appointment.
