Energy drinks and sports drinks might be just as bad for your teeth as soda. These drinks contain high levels of acid and sugar, which can lead to cavities and tooth decay.

Crooked teeth can ruin the aesthetic of a smile. If you are tired of hiding your smile from the world, it might be time to visit the cosmetic dentist for a straightening treatment that works for you. In the past, dentists mostly offered braces as a viable option to straighten teeth. Now, Invisalign offers an alternate treatment option. Keep reading to find out how Invisalign and traditional braces compare:
The Similarities between Treatments
Both Invisalign and traditional braces are considered effective methods of fixing oral issues with crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite, and underbite. They can both also be used to straighten teeth and perfect a smile. While they have similar effects, they use very different processes to achieve them.
The Differences between Treatments
With Invisalign, patients can remove their aligners and eat whatever they want. Braces have food restrictions that keep patients from enjoying a wide range of food throughout the duration of their treatment. Invisalign aligners are almost invisible, which offers more aesthetic appeal than chunky metal braces. They also help patients maintain a thorough oral hygiene routine, which leads to better teeth and gum health. Patients who wear Invisalign will need to visit their Invisalign provider every four-to-six-weeks to obtain more trays and ensure their teeth are aligning properly. The aligners are comfortable to wear and easy to remove to give the patient the best straightening experience possible.
If you are ready to get straighter teeth and a perfect smile, Studio B Smiles is here to help. With our cosmetic dentistry services in Scottsdale, we can help you remedy your oral issues and get a smile of which you can be proud.

The Invisalign system makes straightening your teeth easy and comfortable using clear plastic aligners rather than metal and wire braces. Caring for your aligners will ensure they remain in good shape, keeping them clear and preventing delays in your results. If you have further questions about your Invisalign treatment, check with your cosmetic dentist for personalized answers.
Remove Aligners to Eat and Drink
Eating and drinking during treatment with the Invisalign system is easy. You should remove your aligners every time you eat or drink. Removing your aligners will not only prevent damage to the aligners from hard foods, but avoid staining them as well. Rinse out your mouth with water or brush your teeth before replacing your aligners to prevent trapping food or stains.
Clean Aligners Daily
Your aligners must be cleaned every day. You can use the official Invisalign cleaning kit or brush the aligners with your toothbrush and toothpaste. However, check with your dentist first to ensure your toothpaste is safe to use with your aligners. The wrong type of product could abrade or discolor the trays. Always use a soft-bristled toothbrush when brushing your aligner, and use lukewarm rather than hot water. Hot water could deform the aligner, making it difficult or impossible to snap back over your teeth.
Use Mouthwash for Fresh Breath
Over time, food particles and bacteria trapped in your aligners can cause bad breath. You can freshen your aligners and your breath by soaking them for a few minutes in a solution of whitening mouthwash. Avoid using colored mouthwashes, as the dyes may also stain your aligners. You can also use a denture cleansing tablet to help break up built-up food and plaque for fresher breath.
