snug fit disappearing by week 2

on my second week of aligners. By week two the snug fit is disappearing. Unfortunately, I think it is more from the aligners becoming a bit bent/ broadened from being taken in and out so much. Is this normal and will it affect treatment? Also what are the consensus on drinking room temperatured coff...

invisalign vs traditional braces.

Which option would be the safest with regards to dental health (cavities/ gingivitis) through ortho treatment. I dont necessarily mind the cosmetic appearance of braces. on one hand I can brush and clean my teeth really well with invisalign aligners morning and night time, however, on the flip side,...
