Custom Treatment To Complement Your Teen's Lifestyle

The Basics and Benefits of Choosing Removable Invisalign Aligners

What Is Invisalign for Teens?

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, applying the force needed to align the teeth, while remaining discreet and comfortable. 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 come to life by crafting a smile simulation that previews what the smile and bite will look like once the 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 Teen's life and Invisalign fits in seamlessly. Lux recommends a friendly schedule of wear to allow Teens 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 Teen 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 7 and older can be treated with Invisalign, if diagnosed by an orthodontist with Invisalign experience. Lux delights in the opportunity to help Teens find the perfect smile while keeping it fun and stress-free. 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 Teens?

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.

Extensive Industry Experience

Dr Erin Cohen is a VIP Diamond Plus Invisalign provider, the highest status recognized by Invisalign to orthodontists who meet a benchmark of treating a designated number of patients over time. This vast experience over the last 20 years coupled with her Ivy League education at both Cornell and Columbia University, make her a highly sought after provider of the Invisalign system.

Lux Orthodontics was the featured Practice for the 2021 Invisalign Teen Forum for incorporating all things digital, including the Invisalign Virtual Care system. Teenagers and children alike benefit from Virtual Care, as it allows for a number of Teledentistry appointments during their time in treatment.

Dr Erin Cohen served as an expert panelist at the 2022 Invisalign Summit where she highlighted how to implement Virtual Care into a modern day orthodontic practice. She was also invited to speak at the 2021 Invisalign sales meeting to provide insight on her motivation to become an all-Invisalign practice.

Cutting-Edge Technology

Dr Erin Cohen and the Team at Lux take pride in an ultramodern approach to providing Invisalign for Teens in Los Angeles and beyond. During the first consultation, a smile simulation is created using state-of-the-art imaging technology - the iTero 3D scanner. This scan is used by Dr Cohen and the Team to visually demonstrate a smile transformation from beginning to end. The 3D Ultra Low Dose X-ray allows a full view of teeth, bone, sinuses and joints and contributes to the diagnosis and treatment plan that ultimately creates the most ideal result.

Custom Treatment Plans

The #1 goal at Lux is to create the most beautiful smile while, at the same time, creating space for Teens to enjoy their activities. In this vein, Dr Cohen and her Team tailor the treatment and the aligner wear schedule to positively contribute to both a good outcome and patient experience. Lux considers itself a holistic Practice, treating the whole Teen, not just their teeth.

Community Involvement

Lux understands the importance of instilling good oral habits, regardless of financial status. As a way of giving back to the community, Lux is proud to provide subsidized orthodontic treatments for our underserved community members. Lux also partners with TerraCycle®, an innovative company recycling hard-to-recycle waste. Lux joins in its mission to protect the planet by promoting clean, sustainable oral care. Lux encourages patients to return all aligners and then disposes of them through Terracycle. Another cause close to the hearts at Lux is showing our gratitude to Veterans for their service. Annually in November, Lux dedicates time to assemble and distribute 100 oral hygiene kits for homeless Veterans in Los Angeles. Each year, patients, family and friends participate by assembling a kit along with a personal, handwritten note of gratitude.

Go Virtual

Lux elevates the Invisalign Teen experience by incorporating a virtual component into treatment. Patients are registered in Virtual Care and are provided with cheek retractors and instructions on submitting weekly photos while wearing aligners. Patients receive immediate feedback as a result as the latest Al feature in Virtual Care. This feature promotes patient engagement and provides quality feedback while patients are not seen in the office.

What Patients Love about Lux

I would give Dr Cohen 100 stars if I could. She is the best orthodontist anyone could ever ask for. She is knowledgeable, reliable and cares deeply for her patients. She always explains complex medical condition to me using the most understandable term. And her attention to detail takes thoroughness to a new level. I don’t live in Los Angeles and Dr Cohen makes extra effort to accommodate my schedule. Her office staff is really awesome too! The lovely staff are professional and responsible. I really appreciate everything Dr Cohen and her team has done for me and I cannot be more satisfied with my results!
