Remove #Invisalign trays before drinking #DrSoftTouch
For my patients, I always recommend removing Invisalign trays before drinking anything other than water. Allowing a beverage of any kind (other than water) to remain on your teeth for a period of time makes your teeth more susceptible to decay. If you absolutely have to drink while wearing your trays, then I would recommend that you take them out and rinse thoroughly with water, shortly after finishing your beverage. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
