Sick... Do you use (sugarless) cough candy with Invisalign?

#1 Post by lilone » Mon Apr 23, 2012 12:54 am

I just started Invisalign and managed to get a cold a mere two days into it. I am a teacher and have to talk a lot which isn't easy with a razor throat. I usually use Halls cough candies but wasn't sure what to do now that I have the aligners. How did you guys navigate your first cold? Are sugar free candies safe to suck on for sore throats?

I've been having sugar free halls for a year with the trays in. My ortho said it's ok as long as they are sugar free.

That's a very long cold you had. LOL.

Thanks...I tracked some down and they at least provide moisture. They don't help much with the razor throat but I don't think anything does.
How do you clean you aligners when you have a virus?

A year non stop, but it's not a cold. :|

Good to know these are ok, I was wondering when I had a cold a few weeks back, but suffered through without.
