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.
  • I recently moved to Delaware from New York and have a permanent/ bonded retainer on my lower front teeth. The glue on one of my teeth dislodged so I called this office to see if they would be able to repair it. The receptionist quickly dismissed me and said, and I quote, "We do not do that here." I thought this was an Orthodontist office and this is a pretty standard procedure/ quick repair. They didn't even try to schedule me to come in to assess. Unfortunately, I cannot go to my old Orthodontist who put the retainer on after I had braces SEVERAL YEARS AGO in high school because they are in New York. I will look for an Orthodontist elsewhere.
  • This office is so great! They greeted us by name when we arrived. There was a very short wait. And my daughter enjoyed her appointment and all the equipment they have. The staff were all kind and worked well together
