Our Low Profile Braces are a Total Victory

3M Unitek VictorySeries Low Profile Braces

No matter what your age, metal braces are still the most common and affordable type of braces. That’s why, at Kelly Orthodontics, we are proud to offer our patients the Victory Series Low Profile Braces from 3M Unitek.

Why 3M Braces?
3M is a global leader in technology, innovation and research. In the braces arena, 3M produced the first stainless steel braces, the first adhesive pre-coated braces, color-changing bonding adhesive, and true self-ligating braces. 3M has been a proven leader in the orthodontic industry for over 60 years and they put this expertise to work in every set of braces they manufacture.

What makes the Victory Series popular with patients is that the brackets and tubes come with a pre-applied, light-sensitive adhesive that enables patients to have a controlled, efficient bonding with less waste, trouble, and time. The brackets are also color-coded to help Dr. Kelly quickly and effectively treat each tooth individually. In addition, because the bonding pads curve to match the shape of the tooth, Victory Series Low Profile Braces provide more exact, efficient results.

A New Standard for Comfort
  • Victory Series metal appliances are the right choice when you need a small bracket designed for comfort while providing firm corrective forces.
  • The Victory Series braces look and feel better than traditional braces because of their lower profile and the position of the bracket on your teeth makes it more comfortable to wear.
  • High bond strength provides firm, corrective forces and the unique natural curvature provides maximum contact and comfort.
  • Victory Series braces have all the features and control that comes with traditional full size braces.

From Victory Series Low Profile Braces to Invisalign, we provide our patients with plenty of options to look forward to when thinking about transforming their smile. If you’ve been considering getting braces for a while and don’t know where to start, consider giving Kelly Orthodontics a call. Our Orthodontic office serves St. Charles, Il and the surrounding areas. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Daniel Kelly today.

Summertime Smiles

Kelly Orthodontics

Ask any teen and they’ll probably tell you that there is no good time to get braces, however, summertime is actually the very best time to get braces.

Why Summertime?
  • Time to Adjust - It’s no secret that getting braces can be pretty daunting to the self-esteem of a teenager. Giving them a few months to get used to their braces without being surrounded by their peers at school can make a huge difference in their confidence overall. Similarly, summer helps teens learn important things about wearing and caring for their new braces. 
  • Time to Break in the Braces – Braces can make talking and eating difficult. Braces can also initially disrupt sports or extra-curricular activities like Choir or Band. Summertime is the perfect time to relearn how to do some of those tasks as trying to relearn these things during the school year can make getting braces even more stressful than the process already is for most teens.
  • Fewer Responsibilities - Most teens have far fewer responsibilities during the summer than they do during the school year. No homework, no projects and fewer sports commitments can make scheduling appointments a lot easier.
Did you know…
Orthodontic treatment is ideal during the teenage years as this is the time for quick growth and change, which makes it easier to shape your teen’s bite and smile. Braces can solve a number of oral health problems, including:
  • Gaps between teeth 
  • Overbite 
  • Open bite where some teeth cannot properly touch each other 
  • Underbite 
  • Crossbite where both the upper and lower teeth are misaligned

Kelly Orthodontics is conveniently located in St. Charles, IL. We have early morning and evening appointments and do our best to accommodate your schedule. Dr. Daniel Kelly offers complimentary consultations, flexible payment options and accepts most major insurance plans. Please visit our website to schedule your teen’s orthodontic appointment.
