I ruined my aligners

I accidentally drank some coffee with my aligners in, now they’re kind of warped. Is there a way to fix them?

Denise,

It’s likely your dentist will need to make you a new aligner or set of aligners for you. I wouldn’t be too embarassed. You wouldn’t be the first patient to make the same mistake. Though some do it intentionally. ¬†They don’t realize they don’t have to give up coffee completely in order to have invisalign.

Remember, you get to take your aligners out every meal. That’s three cups of coffee you can easily fit into your day. ¬†Seeing as Invisalign works in half the time as traditional braces, so it won’t be long until you can have as many cups a day as you’d like.
