As an early morning beverage that kick-starts your day, or an afternoon pick me up. Hot coffee is a drink that billions of people across the globe savor for its flavor and caffeine, and aroma. Unfortunately, not all brew drinkers are able to enjoy their deliciously rich cup of jo due to certain orthodontic instruments, including braces. Below, we will explore why drinking coffee with braces is discouraged, the effects drinking coffee with braces may have, and other conditions that make coffee drinking challenging.
Why Can’t you Drink Coffee with Braces?
Drinking one cup of coffee while having braces won’t necessarily do any real harm, however it’s when that single cup turns into a habit. Consistently drinking a cup of coffee with braces causes the brackets of your braces, and your teeth to stain. Consistent staining of braces can cause orthodontic setbacks so it is best advised to not habitually drink.
However there are some tricks to getting around this annoying caffeine hiccup. Always have a metal or sustainably made straw on hand. Drinking coffee, or any dark beverages with braces substantially mitigates staining to your teeth. Don’t worry if you do not have a straw on hand. Brushing your teeth right after you finish your precious hot coffee will reduce staining done to your braces.
Despite braces being sensitive to coffee and other darker beverages. People who wear Invisalign don’t need to worry about any negative ramifications from their favorite hot drink.

The most common reason why people do not drink a cup of jo, despite loving the taste of coffee (besides having braces) is due to caffeine intolerance. Most cases of caffeine intolerance aren't noticeable until a couple cups of caffeinated beverages are ingested. It’s most common symptoms are a racing heartbeat, uncomfortable jitters, and painful diarrhea. Despite being a painful and inconvenient condition to have, it comes with a silver lining. Enter, decaffeinated coffee.
Fortunately, coffee boutiques and cafes are quite inclusive of people who suffer from caffeine sensitivity. Nearly all chains and cafes include decaf options on the menu for those who suffer from caffeine intolerance or caffeine sensitivities.
