Hey Anoop, I have a question – I’m thinking about having Invisalign treatment soon. There is a problem that I know is my own fault, I smoke around 30 cigarettes a day, I have done for years and I really struggle to cut down. Just wondering will my smoking have an effect on the brace or if my teeth and gums will be more susceptible to rotting or disease? Are you able to take the brace out every time I smoke, Or will this slow my treatment down quite a bit? Is there another option that i can go with that will be better for me or does it not make a massive difference? I know smoking is bad for my mouth in general but just wanted to know if i was putting my teeth and gums at more risk with a brace?
