  4. How to Eat While Wearing Your Clear Aligners

I’m Dr. Mike Anderson and I’ve got some useful information for you about eating with your clear aligners in. Because you have to wear your clear aligners for at least 22 hours a day, that’s difficult to manage unless you’re eating some snacks and some meals with your aligners in. And I’m going to show you how easy it’s done. When you first get your aligners, try eating some soft food with your aligners in. Easy things are grapes and bananas because they’re soft and they don’t need much chewing, you’ll find them very easy at first. Then you can progress to bigger meals and food that needs a bit more chewing. I’m going to show you how easy it is. So I’m just going to give my hands a good clean, put both my aligners in. And then just to show you how it can be done, this is a nice apple. Easy, done.
