Wine with invisalign

I need a glass of wine or two to relax during the day. Is it ok to do that once I start invisalign?

Victoria,

The answer to that question depends on when you want to have the wine. If you want to have the wine while your eating your meals, that will be fine.

If, however, you’re wanting to drink wine while the Invisalign aligners are in, I wouldn’t recommend that. ┬áThe wine will get into the aligners, which will cause tooth decay from the acidic nature of the alcohol.

You get three meals a day, so that will give you at least three glasses of wine.
