I was hoping to only have to switch to carbonated water, as I find water difficult to drink. I've googled the question and came up with very conflicting results. The nutrition label gives all zeroes, and the ingredients are: Carbonated water, citric acid, natural flavors, potassium benzoate, potassium citrate, sucralose, acesulfame potassium.

Invisalign aligners will retain sugars and acids for the entire day
Invisalign aligners can act as bleach trays to whiten teeth. They can also do the same action to hold onto beverages consumed while wearing them. Anything other than water will have a different pH and have other things such as acids that would break down tooth structure.
Only drink water with invisalign in!
Stay with water with aligners in...
The major issue with sugars is that they can be broken down by various bacteria and result in acid production. The ingredients in flavoured waters have acids in them that can change the mineral content of your teeth in an undesirable way. In order to avoid decay, it's best to avoid anything other than plain water.
