Can I Drink Sparkling Water When Wearing Aligners?

Hi Dr Manoloutsou. I just got my first tray yesterday. I’m not usually a water drinker, I dislike the taste it leaves in my mouth. I usually drink flavoured sparkling water. The flavoured water I drink contains no sugar and no artificial colours. However, the ingredients do include citric acid, potassium citrate, and malic acid. Can I can drink? Still water is making me gag and it’s only day two. Thank you!
Hello, thank you for your question. Ideally you should not consume fizzy drinks with the aligners in as you are aware of their acidic content. If there is absolutely no other way around it, then please take your aligners out and rinse your mouth with plain water afterwards. Hope this helps, Vasileia.
