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
  • My daughter braces were put on today, her experience was delightful. The dental assistant Jocelyn * I hope I spelled her name correctly* was pleasant, informative, fast, and welcoming. She made my daughter and I very comfortable all the while helping a new dental assistant learn the process. If her next step is to become a doctor I know she’ll be the best!
  • The office is well managed and the Doctor is fantastic. Very hands on and concerned about my son. Great attitude by everyone in the office! If you have a family member who needs Orthodontic work....go see this Doctor you won't be disappointed!
  • It is ridiculous that if you have to cancel an appt or switch an adjustment appt they never have anything available until months later . That delays your whole care process by months , makes no sense that if I am due for an adjustment and cant get in that I then have to wait months to get an appt. If you're looking flexibility this isn't the place to go .
  • Great experience, the technicians were super helpful, fast & caring as well as the Doctor! Highly recommend.
  • The waiting area is very kid friendly with a ps4 and xbox one.

If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Remember that insurance policies vary, and we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action.

We accept all major insurances. We are a preferred provider for MetLife, Delta Dental and Cigna DNSP. Once orthodontic treatment has started, we will fill your claims.
