Can You Drink Coffee With
Clear Braces?

A morning cup of coffee is a necessity for most of us. But if you’re wearing clear braces, can you?

Before we continue, there is one critical point to understand. Your braces' ceramic brackets will never stain due to their resistance to discoloration. But the clear bands used to connect the archwire to your brackets can stain.

If you have aligners in your mouth, abstain from coffee. Avoid eating or drinking anything while wearing it. 

Remove the aligners if you wish to eat or drink anything. After that, brush your teeth and remember to replace your aligners; they should be worn for at least 22 hours.

It is recommended that you avoid coffee during treatment with both traditional braces and Invisalign.

Caffeinated beverages such as coffee, tea,  red wine, and soda will stain your trays and can warp the aligners, which are custom-made to fit your mouth. If they no longer fit snugly, you will be unable to achieve optimal orthodontic results.

But if you are unable to live without caffeine or fruity beverages, swishing your mouth with fresh water will be enough. Consuming iced coffee or iced tea through a straw may help prevent staining.

Additionally, the following foods are damaging to your teeth: taffy and caramels, soda pop, sugar on cereal, the icing on rolls and cakes, peanut butter and jelly, ketchup, syrup.
