Clear ceramic braces
Clear Ceramic braces are a fantastic treatment option for those teenage and adult patients that want a less visible orthodontic treatment option. They are very similar to the traditional metal braces but are made with a transparent ceramic material that blends in with the natural color of your teeth. This option has become a favorite with adults and even some celebrities since they are harder to notice unless you look closely. Dr. Pancko can help you determine what treatment is best for your individual case. Please contact the Wilmington Orthodontic Center to schedule an appointment and learn more about how braces enhance your smile.

Invisalign treatment is an investment into your dental health. There are many dentists that offering Invisalign treatment but it is advisable that everyone should be seen by a board certified Orthodontist, like Dr. Pancko, before making the decision to start treatment.

How do you wear Invisalign?
IEach set of Invisalign aligners are worn for 2 weeks. They are removed only to eat, drink, brush, and floss so ideally they should be worn for 23 hours a day. After 2 weeks, you will replace your aligner with the next in the series in order to move your teeth little by little until they have straightened to the final position that Dr. Pancko has planned for your orthodontic treatment. You will need to return to the Wilmington Orthodontic Center in Wilmington Delaware once every 6-8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Dr. Pancko at the Wilmington Orthodontic Center feels that cost should not be a barrier to patients wanting Invisalign orthodontic treatment. We offer Invisalign at the same cost as ceramic braces.

Is invisalign more comfortable than braces?
Invisalign clear aligners are made from a lightweight, BPA-free plastic material that is designed to fit precisely into your mouth. Patients under invisalign clear aligner therapy do not typically experience the mouth sores that occur with braces. Invisalign can also be removed for eating so unlike braces where you can not eat hard sticky foods, your diet remains unchanged while your under invisalign treatment. Brushing is also much easier with Invisalign since the trays can be removed to brush and floss where braces are attached to the teeth.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The length of your invisalign treatment depends on your particular case. Dr. Nancy Pancko can evaluate your case at your complimentary orthodontic evaluation in order to give you an estimated treatment time for your Invisalign treatment.
