why not metal braces?

At Brunswick KiDDS, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality orthodontic care, tailored to your unique needs and preferences. Today, we would like to share some valuable information about the benefits of SimplyClear aligners compared to traditional metal braces, so you can make an informed decision about your orthodontic treatment.


Aesthetic Appeal


SimplyClear aligners offer a discreet and virtually invisible alternative to traditional metal braces. Crafted from a transparent, BPA-free plastic material, these aligners allow you to straighten your teeth without drawing unnecessary attention to your orthodontic treatment. You can confidently smile and speak, knowing that your aligners are hardly noticeable.


Enhanced Comfort


SimplyClear aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, ensuring a comfortable and precise fit. The smooth plastic material eliminates the risk of irritation and discomfort often associated with metal brackets and wires. With clear aligners, you can go about your daily activities without worrying about mouth sores or discomfort.




Unlike traditional braces, SimplyClear aligners are removable. This means you can easily take them out when eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. You won’t have to restrict your diet or struggle with hard-to-reach areas while cleaning your teeth. The ability to remove your aligners also makes special occasions, such as weddings or professional events, more convenient.


Oral Hygiene


Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial during orthodontic treatment. With SimplyClear aligners, you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as usual since there are no brackets or wires to navigate around. This promotes better oral health, reduces the risk of tooth decay, and helps keep your breath fresh throughout your treatment.


Predictable Treatment


SimplyClear aligners utilize advanced technology to plan and predict the movement of your teeth. Through a series of customized aligners, your teeth gradually shift into their desired positions. Our team will work closely with you, monitoring your progress and ensuring that your treatment plan is on track, resulting in a beautifully aligned smile.


Reduced Treatment Time


In some cases, clear aligners may provide a faster treatment option compared to traditional braces. Through the use of advanced computer algorithms, your treatment plan can be designed to optimize tooth movement and minimize the overall duration of your orthodontic journey. Our goal is to help you achieve your dream smile in the most efficient way possible.


Reduced visits/Remote Monitoring


With the advancements in teleorthodontics, we can remotely monitor your progress using innovative tools. We offer our patients complementary use of the Grin remote monitoring app to enhance the convenience of treatment for patients.

You may be asked to provide regular check-ins consisting of a brief scan of your teeth wearing the aligners that can be obtained using your smartphone and a scope provided by our office. Our orthodontic team will review the updates and provide guidance and support as needed, reducing the need for in-person visits.


We understand that choosing the right orthodontic treatment is an important decision. Our experienced team is here to provide personalized guidance, answer any questions you may have, and help you explore the benefits of clear aligners in greater detail. We look forward to discussing your treatment options and assisting you on your path towards a confident and beautiful smile.

A Beautiful Smile Makes all the Difference!

We offer Pediatric Dentistry and Braces for Kids and Teens

The American Association for Orthodontists recommends that every child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7.


Early detection and treatment gives your child the edge - a much better chance for natural and normal development.  One advantage of having Dr. Milton, Dr. Brittany, Dr. Derek, Dr. Eilish and Dr. Zach for your child’s dental home is that we monitor their growth & development on a regular basis. Our parents truly appreciate having orthodontic treatment done in our office.  This allows them to coordinate cleaning and check-up appointments with orthodontic appointments. By working with the natural growth instead of against it, we can prevent problems from becoming worse, and give your child a lifetime of healthy smiles!
