WILMINGTON ORTHODONTIC CENTER

Orthodontics for teens

The teen years are important in orthodontics given that the treatments are more efficient and faster when timed with growth. Orthodontic problems don’t improve with age, they simply become harder to treat. It’s easier to treat many orthodontic problems during adolescence because the body is still growing rapidly at this time. Whether we use standard braces, or appliances like palatal expanders, we can create an improved appearance and function in a short period of time. In later years, when the bones of the face and jaw are fully developed, many conditions become more difficult (and costly) to treat.

Invisible Braces Vs. Metal braces

  • Since each smile and face are unique, Dr. Pancko utilizes the most advanced technology to customize a goal directed treatment plan to give your teen the show stopping smile he or she expects. Orthodontic treatment has never been easier, more comfortable, or more stylish for todays active teenagers. When it’s done, they will have a smile that they can really be proud of, and benefits that will last their whole life.
  • Dr. Pancko offers teens many treatment options, including metal or ceramic (clear) braces, invisalign teen and lingual braces (incognito).

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

Discover the reasons why we're the smartest choice for your best smile
  • This place is a hidden gem within the city! The staff have always been welcoming and very professional which is a must when it comes to my healthcare needs. In addition, I love the fact that they offer payment plans and thanks to that it made it feasible for my family and I to obtain our braces.
  • One of the nicest, cleanest office I’ve been to. I felt comfortable, at ease & welcomed! The staff is exceptional, very knowledgeable & pleasant. This is my second visit & usually I don’t make it to a second appointment.
  • Very aesthetically pleasing, was seen at exact appointment time! Easy transfer, great communication and nice friendly staff! Left a good first impression for sure
  • I went to this office because I want traditional braces. At first everything was going very well. The inside of the office is clean, all the equipment seems modern and is very nice to look at. The woman that took my X-rays and digital scan was very nice. She has a welcoming demeanor and she was highly informative. I wish I remembered her name, she has long locs. She told me that traditional braces could definitely do the job of closing my completely open smile. She explained the process and how long it may take. I was so excited. Then the doctor comes in (again, don’t remember her name) and tells me she thinks Invisalign will be better for me. I 100% DO NOT WANT Invisalign. The doctor is unwilling to service me because I don’t want Invisalign. You cannot FORCE me to get something because you feel it will be easier. Then to deny me service!?! Absolutely outrageous! Completely ruined my experience and it was a huge disappointment after waiting 3 weeks for appointment!
  • Dr.Nancy is so sweet. She always listens to patients problems and give wonderful care. The whole team is awesome.
