In search of greater beauty, I am currently undergoing Invisalign treatment, invisible braces. I’ll save you the wonderful details, but the most life changing aspect of it (besides improving my smile) is that the clear, thin gumshield-like aligners have to stay in 22 hours a day. I’m allowed to take them out for eating and cleaning. I have had to give up grazing, and so am now down to just three meals a day. I have, however, lost a stone of weight, so I’m not complaining too much.
I can drink water, carbonated water, or green tea with them in. Anything else will either stain the braces, or get sugar underneath them, risking my oral health! All alcohol contains sugar to some extent, so I even have to limit my whisky tasting. This has led to something of a dilemma. If I can only have one whisky per day, what whisky should I choose?
