Can You Drink Tea with Invisalign?

If you’ve recently started wearing Invisalign braces, you’re likely wondering if you can still enjoy a nice cup of tea while having them. The good news is that, yes, you can drink tea with Invisalign. However, it is important to be aware of a few things that can help you prevent any stains or damage to your aligners.

How to Drink Tea with Invisalign

Drinking tea with Invisalign is possible, but you should take the following precautions:

  • Drink it cool:Drink tea that has cooled down as Invisalign aligners can be warped by hot beverages. If you like to add milk or sugar, make sure that is also cooled down.
  • Remove aligners: Be sure to remove your aligners before drinking hot tea. Hot beverages can damage the shape of the aligners, so it is best to remove them before drinking tea.
  • Watch the stains:Staining is a common problem with Invisalign braces, and tea can exacerbate the issue. To keep your aligners looking like new, rinse your mouth and aligners thoroughly after drinking tea.
  • Clean aligners:Drinking tea with Invisalign can cause build-up on the aligners. Make sure to clean them daily with a dentures cleaning solution and then brush them gently with a toothbrush.

Invisalign aligners are a convenient and subtle way to straighten teeth, and enjoying a cup of tea with them is still possible with the right precautions. By taking the steps above, you can make sure that both your aligners and your teeth stay healthy and beautiful.
