Invisalign

Just spotted a confusing commercial for Invisalign, and quite frankly, I have a question.

Okay, so you're wearing the "Invisalign aligners" while out, say, dining with friends (not that I'm ever out dining with friends, but that's a whole different issue!). Do you, like, take them out? Or do you keep them in? Does food ever get stuck in between your teeth and the aligners? And wouldn't that be even more humiliating than having real braces and having food stuck in them? Because really, if you are open with others about your orthodontic status, wouldn't food stuck in the braces be far more reasonable (not to mention forgivable) than seeing this weird mesh of garlic mashed potatoes situated around someone's already-odd-looking teeth?
