Yes, its safe.: It should be fine. Invisalign plastic is fairly strong & durable. Also, you'll be switching out of your aligners on a 2 week basis, so even if the current aligner starts to thin, you'll be switching into your next set fairly soon. If, however, you and your dentist discover that the aligners aren't withstanding your grinding, then you may need to switch trad'l braces.
