If you live in Woodstock, Harvard, or Marengo, IL, and need orthodontic treatment, we help determine the services that best fit your needs and lifestyle. Whether you prefer Invisalign®, traditional braces, or are looking for something different, we can help. During our consultation, we will discuss your treatment plan including its timing, options, and fees.
Treatment typically begins after adult teeth are fully developed. We will decide a treatment fee after an initial examination. This examination also determines the estimated length of time. For full braces, the average treatment plan ranges from 18-24 months. For more complicated treatments, time ranges from 24-36 months.
When you wear corrective devices, like braces, food is more likely to get stuck. Good oral hygiene is essential while treatment progresses. Patients need to brush more carefully and more often to prevent decay.
We also understand that life is busy. Our office hours help accommodate daily work and family life. We offer appointments Monday through Friday, with extended hours on alternating Saturdays. Family Dentistry of Woodstock wants to be accessible to our patients during any dental emergency. Our office works hard to ensure timely and efficient service.
