Lux Orthodontics is a Top 1% VIP Diamond Plus Provider of Invisalign for Children
As a parent, nothing warms your heart more than seeing your little one pursue their interests, build friendships and discover themselves. Fostering happy and confident children as they explore new experiences is a priority.
Misaligned teeth can make any carefree child feel self-conscious about their appearance. Lux understands this facet of child development and is proud to offer treatment using Invisalign First.
Dr Erin Cohen and her Team understand that every child has unique needs, and that providing them with a customized experience is key to achieving the best possible outcome.
Our genuine passion for developing advanced and personalized treatment plans for our younger patients sets Lux Orthodontics apart from the rest. While any qualified orthodontist can straighten teeth, Dr Erin Cohen uses intricate artistry, state-of-the-art technology, refined expertise and prioritizes consistent communication with her patients to achieve their desired results.
Dr Erin Cohen, the founder and featured orthodontist at Lux, has over 20 years of experience using the Invisalign system and prides herself on evolving as Invisalign evolves. This provides the very best treatment for each and every patient.
The Team at Lux strives to help each child achieve their perfect smile through support, motivation and a seamless experience. Lux offers a text-first approach to answer questions efficiently. Teledentistry is also utilized to provide a digital interface for treatment, which is possible when patients are treated with removable Invisalign aligners. Both of these platforms eliminate unnecessary phone calls and in-office appointments. These benefits also help to create a peaceful office environment, with a smaller volume of patients seen per day (unlike a traditional high-volume orthodontic model).
Custom Treatment To Complement Your Child's Lifestyle
The Basics and Benefits of Choosing Removable Invisalign Aligners
What Is Invisalign for Kids?
Invisalign straightens teeth and corrects bites through a series of clear, removable aligners that are designed specifically by an orthodontist. The aligners are thin, comfortable and fit securely over the teeth, all the while applying the force needed and remaining discreet.
At Lux, Dr Cohen and her Team take these benefits up a notch by creating a customized experience. The process begins with a digital scan of the teeth using the advanced iTero® 3D scanner. Dr Cohen makes the images comes to life by creating a smile simulation that previews what the smile and bite will look like once treatment is complete. The next step involves photographs of the face and teeth and a 3D Ultra Low Dose X-ray. The images are then used to diagnose and craft a custom plan. Lux invests in the most current technologies to ensure the safest, most accurate and detailed treatment.
Why Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign treatment is a winning combination of comfort, esthetics, accuracy and lifestyle. Compared to traditional braces, clear aligners are comfortable, aesthetically superior and conducive to excellent oral hygiene.
Patients who wear Invisalign also finish 5 months sooner, on average, compared to patients wearing braces. Invisalign is also compatible with every day life. Travel, school, sports and summer camps are part of a Child's life and Invisalign fits in seamlessly.
Lux recommends a friendly schedule of wear to allow children to do all of the above while still finding enough hours of wear during the day and night to accomplish the desired treatment outcome. Since Invisalign aligners are removable, your child can maintain their regular dental hygiene regimen throughout the treatment, reducing the likelihood of decay and gum disease.
What is the Best Age to Start Invisalign Treatment?
Children ages 6 to 10 can be treated with Invisalign First, if diagnosed by an orthodontist with Invisalign experience. Lux delights in the opportunity to help young children find the perfect smile while keeping it fun and carefree. Even if the pediatric dentist has not recommended an orthodontic consultation, it is always prudent to explore the possibilities so timing and options are ideal.
How Much is Invisalign for Kids?
Invisalign costs vary depending on estimated treatment time, location (for example, Los Angeles), insurance benefits and the orthodontist of choice. Invisalign treatment cost can be offset if a dental insurance plan carries an orthodontic benefit. Lux offers several options in cost as well as financing for each.
