Your aligners must be removed anytime you go to eat or drink colored liquids. As we mentioned, the aligners are made of plastic, so they can break if they are used while chewing food. We do not recommend leaving in your aligners at any time when eating. If you break your aligners, it does cost to have them remade, and you will add more time to your teeth straightening journey.
Overall, clear aligners are an excellent alternative to traditional metal braces.
