We value your dedication!

January 13th, 2017

The world has changed since we were children! A beautiful smile was a dream of mine when I was a child. I did not start braces until I was a young adult. Today nobody needs to go through their life hiding their smile. There are various methods such as Invisalign or Braces to treat patients and more budget options to choose from than ever before.

Here's the biggest challenge! Life is busy! Can I get an, oh yeah? Here at SuperSmile Orthodontics we understand the challenges of busy Las Vegas life. Even though all visitors think we live on the strip, lol! You probably run all over Las Vegas for work, meetings, appointments, kids sports and of course visiting Dr. Chamberlain.

We value your time! That is why we allow time in our schedule for after school/work appointments. Dr. Chamberlain tries to limit the amount of long appointments that take an hour or more throughout treatment. We want your experience at SuperSmile Orthodontics to be as easy breezy as possible. Keep up the great job! Without parents dedication, we would not be able to create all these beautiful smiles!

The right orthodontist for your braces or Invisalign in Las Vegas!

December 9th, 2016

Your smile is a vital part of you! If you're not comfortable with your smile if affects self esteem. Your self-esteem is your springboard for friendships, love, school or maybe the career of your dreams.

Choosing an orthodontist to trust your smile with is no small decision. It's a long-term relationship between the patient, Doctor and office staff. I invite patients to have Dr. Chamberlain preform a through complimentary exam even if our office is not a preferred provider for their insurance. I want them to experience a well-scheduled office with caring staff. I am proud to work for a conservative orthodontist that adheres to a wait and watch approach for our little patients. I want patients and parents to hear Dr. Chamberlain's personalized treatment plan if they require care. I know that when a patient chooses SuperSmile Orthodontics for their braces or Invisalign in Las Vegas they are going to be cared for like family!

I've heard many horror stories about overbooked offices with employed doctors of corporations. I had patients tell me as they transferred to us that they saw 2-3 orthodontists in the course of their child’s treatment. They are over treatment time and dissatisfied with the one day a month that Dr. is seeing patients at that particular office. We offer Monday through Friday appointments! Dr. Chamberlain allows ample time in the appointment to address any patient concerns to ensure treatment stays on schedule.

The History Of Orthodontics

December 2nd, 2016

Orthodontic treatment using Braces or Invisalign is simple compared to years ago! Did you know that Archeologists have found traces of early orthodontic treatment in humans dating back 50,000 years? These humans were Egyptian mummies that had crude bands around their teeth. The Archaeologists believe that catgut may have been tied to these bands to move teeth. Photo credit to the Musuem of Artifacts.

Progress was slow in developing better treatments. In the 18th century there was a breakthrough when a man named Pierre Fauchad was born in 1728. He was later know as the Father of Dentistry. He invented an appliance he named the bandeau. Sounds almost pretty. It in fact was probably was not the most pleasant appliance ever created! It was shaped like a horseshoe and had holes in it to correct the teeth alignment. He also used a forcep called a pelican that he forcibly would move teeth and then tie them together in a better position while they healed. How much are you loving Dr. Chamberlian? Photo credit to fauchard.org

Charles Goodyear invented a new type of rubber in 1839. Orthodontists realized potential in this rubber. In 1839 an American dentist used this rubber to make Orthodontic appliances.

In the 1970's Orthodontist's placed bands around teeth and soldered brackets to them. It was a metallic, miserable process.

Dr. Chamberlain went to Dental school and then completed an additional two years of Orthodontic speciality school. He has dedicated many years to "Unleashing inner smiles"! In 20016 we have tiny GAC self-ligating brackets to reduce friction, space age materials that bond directly to enamel and wires made of nickel titanium. Did you know that this metal alloy was developed by NASA? It has memory and is activated by body heat. This is why you no longer need to see an orthodontist every month. The movement is gradual, which makes treatment more comfortable and efficient. We hope you are enjoying your treatment progress at SuperSmile Orthodontics!

Thanksgiving is a time for sharing!

November 18th, 2016

All of us here at SuperSmile Orthodontics plan on taking a moment to tell the people that mean the most to us, how grateful we are to have them in our lives. So unlike Halloween where braces approved foods are hard to find and appliance breaking goodies are hard to resist. Eat up my friends! Pecan pie may be the only treat you may want to eat carefully. Unless you're a lucky Invisalign patient and can remove your tays to eat whatever you want. Please allow us to share some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes with you.

Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart! Anthony J. D'Angelo

September 28th, 2016

Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart! Anthony J. D'Angelo

There are numerous benefits to straightning your teeth and making sure your bite is healthy. Socially and clinically it has improved the life of many of our patients.

Confidence-

It feel's good to smile! Confidence helps us to be successful in our lives. This is what Dr. Chamberlain meant when he created our mission statement. Unleash you inner smile! We show love to our friends and family with our smile. What a wonderful way to invest in your future!

Wear on teeth-

When teeth hit unevenly and slide to meet. This can cause wear facets on the enamel. The enamel is a hard outer covering of the teeth. If it wears thin, you may experience hot and cold sensitivity. It may stain easier and be more suceptiable to decay. When teeth are left in a compromised position for many years it can misshape the teeth and require extensive dental work.

Cleaning and calculus buildup-

When teeth are aligned it is easier to floss and brush. Studies have found that plaque buildup and heart disease go hand in hand. Yes, it's that important to keep your teeth and gums healthy! Why not make it easy?

Jaw Joint Health-

We use our jaw joints to speak and eat everyday. Jaw joint health is vital for a good quality of life. If your teeth do not meet in a healthy position you will compensate by using your jaw to slide forward, backward or side to side. These un-natural movements can cause inflamation and degeneration of the joint. The pain can be severe.

Spaces or drifting teeth-

Do you have areas that catch food? By closing spaces with Braces or Invisalign, you can improve your gum health. If you are missing a tooth, we sometimes see teeth drifting into that space. When this happens it makes it hard for your dentist to replace the missing tooth. It may even harm the bone supporting the adjacent teeth.

Speech-

Improving the alignment of teeth will improve speech.

Easing into Orthodontic treatment. Tricks of the trade!

August 12th, 2016

We would like to share some tips on finding comfort in early stages of orthodontic treatment. It's exciting, overwhelming and sore. The good news is Dr. Chamberlain and the SuperSmile staff have some tried and true tips to help you adjust to your GAC brackets or Invisalign.

First allow us to explain what you are experiencing. Your teeth have not moved since they erupted. When braces and wires are initally placed, you experience inflamation in the ligament around the teeth that are moving. That inflamation signals the body that cells need to be sent to that area to re-construct. During this process your teeth get sore and might feel a little wiggly. This lasts around 3-5 days. Visit our Life with braces page for more traditional tips.

Our bag of trick includes-

  • Eating something cold! The wires we use are a heat activated metal and cold will make them super flexible. This will give you some temporary relief.
  • Ora-gel and Sucrets have lidocaine in them and numb the soft tissues of the mouth. You can suck on a Sucrets or rub Ora-gel around your sore teeth.
  • Some people find flossing and brushing soothing.
  • Sometimes wires will get pokey as your teeth move. This means your teeth are aligning and no longer require the length of wire they once did. Sometimes wires can slip left to right as well. If this happens you can get a new pencil with an eraser on the end and gently press it against the pokey end. This will slide it back into proper position.
  • OTC pain meds are a must. Please take as recommended.
  • Wax is your best friend! Cover anything and everything thats irritating your cheek.

Creating Smiles With Indoor Fun!

July 28th, 2016

Living in the Northwest Las Vegas area, we experience cabin fever in the months of July-August due to the heat. We see it in our patients and siblings. Little people bouncing off the walls cause they are stuck indoors. Dr. Chamberlain wanted to share some fun activities to do as a family. Smiles are our business after all. You can pick many of these ingredients at the Michaels in Centennial Hills or the Smiths right by our office. If you take advantage of these activities please tag us on Instagram #supersmilevegas or Facebook @SuperSmile Orthodontics.

What causes orthodontic problems, and how will early treatment benefit my child?

May 18th, 2016

Orthodontic problems such as crowding of the teeth, too much space between the teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, and bad bites can be inherited or caused by injury to the mouth, early or late loss of baby teeth, or thumb-sucking habits.

Most children lose all their baby teeth by age 13, and by the end of their teen years, the jaw bones will harden and stop growing. Orthodontic procedures for adults often take more time and can involve tooth extraction or oral surgery. Receiving early orthodontic treatment as a child can help prevent the need for orthodontics as an adult, leaving little to no chance of extraction or surgery in the future.

If your child is between the ages of seven and eight and shows signs of needing orthodontic care, or if you have been directed by your family dentist to visit the orthodontist, please contact our practice at (702)645-5100 to schedule an appointment. Our team will provide your child with a complimentary initial exam, and discuss with you the best steps to take toward caring for your child's smile.

FACT: Smiling is good for you!

April 1st, 2016

Research shows that smiling has many benefits! During several studies they showed pictures of persons with various expressions to panels of individuals. They asked the participants how they viewed the persons in these pictures. The smiling persons were almost always found to be more attractive and approachable. Smiling is free; it feels great and better yet its contagious! Many of our SuperSmile patients tell us how life changing orthodontic treatment has been for them. Parents often tell us that their children feel more confident after beginning treatment with Dr. Chamberlain. They feel attractive and confident from the start to the completion of their treatment. Some of our patients feel so beautiful with braces, they are a little sad to be done with their orthodontic treatment. Your smile is powerful! Get out there and show off your SuperSmile this weekend! Check out these before and after photos.

April is national facial protection month

March 24th, 2016

Here at SuperSmile Orthodontics we recommend the use of facial protection while participating in sports. We believe in the old adage- an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. April is national facial protection month. Check out the American Association of Orthodontics web page for more information.

  • The use of a helmet is the most comprehensive protection; most athletes still wear a mouth guard under their helmet.
  • If your sport doesn't require a helmet, use a mouth guard.

Dr. Chamberlain provides inexpensive, high quality mouth guards for our patients. We can also fabricate custom mouth guards if you want a lower profile, custom fit in your own team color.

Many of you are aware that braces are securely bonded to your teeth with material similar to the filling material used by your dentist. If you experience trauma while wearing braces they may actually help hold your teeth in place due to the support of adjacent teeth. You may break a bracket and your lips will most likely become injured. Please protect your smile by wearing a mouth guard while playing sports.

If your treatment is complete and you're wearing retainers or an Invisalign patient, you will also need to protect your smile with a mouth guard.

* Below are some examples of the different types of mouth guards we offer at SuperSmile Orthodontics. Enjoy the spring sports season.

What the color of the rubber bands on your braces mean

December 28th, 2015

Regular, metal braces aren’t always a pain and hassle. They can actually be accessorized in a way to creatively express a specific style, mood, or outfit. For example, maybe you want to show your school spirit and put on rubber bands that match your school colors. Whatever the case may be, different colors can represent different things, so here’s our chart on what each rubber band color means.

Red

You’re intense and forward thinking, and that you won’t back down no matter how big the challenge. Red is also the color of the heart, so red rubber bands indicating that you’re a caring, loving person.

Blue

Blue means you’re chill – as cool as a cucumber. You’re one cool customer, as the saying goes. You’re relaxed and calm, even when your mom says you can’t chew any gum or eat popcorn because of your braces.

Green

Look at a traffic light and green means go, right? So you’re the type of person who’s always on the move. Go, go, go! It also means you’re generous and kind. Green is the color of nature and spring, so it says you love Mother Earth. Perhaps you even recycle. Green is the color of good luck.

Orange

You’re daring and wild, flamboyant and fun. Orange may indicate you’re an artist or a drama student. It says you have a big personality and that you don’t care what other people think about you. However, orange is also the color of balance and energy. And being flamboyant and fun takes a lot of energy!

Purple

You’re the creative type, for sure. You beat to a different drummer and think outside the box. It says you’re mysterious. Purple is the color of royalty, and when you wear your purple rubber bands you are royally cool.

Color Combinations

What if you can’t choose just one color? Well, you can decorate your teeth with alternating colors. You can choose the colors of your favorite sports team or holiday colors like red and green. If you’re still stumped as to what colors to choose, ask Dr. Brian Chamberlain or a member of our SuperSmile Orthodontics team. We can let you in on all the trends our other patients are sporting at our Las Vegas, Nevada office!

When Should You Get Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?

December 21st, 2015

The third molars, or wisdom teeth, are teeth in the back of your mouth that have been known to cause many problems and a lot of pain. SuperSmile Orthodontics, like most dentists, would recommend removing the wisdom teeth. So you are wondering; what is the need of removing them? While it is not always necessary to take them out, oral surgery for the removal of these teeth has become a rite of passage of sorts. Interestingly, some statistics show over 10 million wisdom teeth are removed per year.

Preventative measures

Wisdom teeth are one of the many reasons to regularly visit your orthodontist. When aligned correctly, these molars are harmless and are able to correctly function in the mouth. However, when wisdom teeth are not aligned, they can cause problems with adjacent teeth and the jawbone. These issues range from fractured teeth and heavy bleeding to minor loss of jaw movement and numbness. It is imperative to remove the wisdom teeth (if misaligned) because as humans get older, the bones in the mouth become harder and it becomes difficult to remove your teeth.

When is removal necessary?

So, when should you get your wisdom teeth taken out? It is important to remove them before any damage is caused, but it is also important no to take them out too early. Well, the roots of the wisdom teeth usually form during the teenage years. Teens and young adults tend to be at their prime health stage, and are more likely to have a faster and easier recovery.  The bones surrounding the molars are usually less dense and can easily be manipulated in patients aged between 17 and 23 years as compared to patients who are aged over 30 years. Make sure you talk to your dentist before deciding if taking out your wisdom teeth is the best move.

At Super Smile Orthodontics, would love to recommend you to a General Dentist as we serve the patients in and round the Las Vegas, NV area. Visit us at our website or call our offices today. 702-645-5100

4 Common Dental Problems that SuperSmile Orthodontics Can Help With

December 14th, 2015

A great smile can sometimes be the best accessory someone can wear. It has the ability to create a charismatic charm on whoever gets to see it. Often times a person’s smile either build or break down their self-confidence. Unfortunately, not everyone possesses a dazzling white, straight smile.

We here at SuperSmile Orthodontics in Las Vegas aim to not only give our patients the best dental health care, but also to help with any aesthetic problems in order to achieve that perfect smile. Here are four common dental problems that our expert dentists at SuperSmile Orthodontics can aid in correcting to give you the amazing smile you deserve.

  • Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth can be caused by numerous factors such as naturally setting in crooked, or eating certain foods before the teeth set. SuperSmile Orthodontics would treat this easily with either conventional metal braces, or clear braces such as Invisalign.

  • Chipped/Broken Teeth

Most of the chipped and broken teeth we’ve encountered were the result of some sort of accident. A few examples include a child’s mouth hitting something hard during sports practice. Depending on how bad the damage is, SuperSmile Orthodontics would most likely recommend veneers, crowns, or cosmetic bonding.

  • Missing Teeth

The problem with adult teeth is that once you lose it, it does not grow back. Missing teeth are definitely not appealing to the eye, and have known to cause problems when chewing and whatnot. Gaps in the mouth can usually be treated with braces and be fixed over time. Missing teeth, however, may require the use of false teeth like Lumineers.

  • Yellow or Stained Teeth

The biggest factor that contributes to the extrinsic staining and yellowing of people’s teeth is their diet. Things such as coffee, wine, soda and many other foods can stain the outer layer of the teeth called the enamel. SuperSmile Orthodontics can help with this problem with teeth cleaning, whitening, and bleaching. Be sure to always brush twice per day, every day.  Using toothpaste that specifically whitens teeth and protects enamel is recommended.

How to Decide on Braces versus Invisalign

December 7th, 2015

invisalign-vs-braces

There have been many strides in the field of orthodontics in the past few years and this has made the choices for getting straight teeth much more complicated. As a result, the decision on which method to choose is simply not an easy one.

* Consideration between braces vs Invisalign carries a lot of questions
* The best treatment is what you aim for whether it be Invisalign or braces
* Whatever the cost you want to ensure you make the correct choice the first time

Deciding on Adult Braces for Yourself
When you are trying to make this important decision, it is best to first consult your Las Vegas orthodontist as he or she will be the one to do the assessment that will determine which treatment would be better for your teeth. Your dental professional will advise you on the severity of your condition and depending on the length of time you are willing to invest in correcting the situation, the options of braces vs Invisalign will be discussed with you. Adult braces are thought to correct issues of bite and tooth gaps at a much faster rate than Invisalign.

* Adult braces will be affixed to the teeth by your Las Vegas orthodontist
* Severity of the condition will help determine between braces vs Invisalign
* Adult braces can correct crooked teeth, gaps and bite problems faster

Deciding on Invisalign for Your Teeth
There are other factors to consider when deciding on Invisalign. While braces may work faster there are some pit falls in using them. The metal adult braces can give the sense of having a metal mouth and even though using invisible braces can solve that problem, those invisible ones can be stained by dark foods and drink as well as the use of tobacco products.

* Invisalign is a great option for those who may not have severely crooked teeth
* Adults who want to avoid the metal mouth look can choose Invisalign
* Invisalign are affordable braces that can replace clear braces which then to be more expensive

Making that Final Call
Other factors that will help you in making your decision have to do with examining the pros an cons of each method. The ability of the braces to be fixed or removable may be important depending on your situation or personal preferences. Another factor that could be of importance to you is the fact that braces are set to fit any mouth, while the Invisalign trays would have to be replaced every 2 to 3 weeks.

* The cost for each is a deciding factor to be discussed with your medical practitioner
* Braces are used for a longer period of time than Invisalign
* Braces are usually easier to take care of during the time period they are worn

Spit Tobacco Healthier than Cigarettes? Think Again.

November 30th, 2015

Ever hear people say, “I brush and floss more than twice per day, and my mouth is totally healthy!” as a way to justify using smokeless tobacco? People commonly believe having good oral hygiene will counter act the effects of tobacco. However, this belief is very inaccurate. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, a government agency dealing with oral health, "there is no evidence that brushing and flossing will undo the harm that dip and chew are doing to your teeth and gums."

Smokeless tobacco comes in different forms. “Snuff” is a powder form of spit tobacco. Most commonly used is “chew” tobacco. This comes in a leaf form, and can be loose, twisted, dry, or moist. Either way, it’s still tobacco.

“Smokeless tobacco” is a term that the tobacco industry prefers to use instead of “spit tobacco”. The name creates and instills the idea that spit tobacco is less harmful than smoking cigarettes. This lures consumers into buying spit tobacco. DON’T FALL FOR IT. Spit tobacco can have dramatic effects on dental and overall health.

Here are just some of things spit tobacco can lead to.

  • Cancer of the mouth

The U.S. Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop, M.D., in 1986 declared that "smokeless tobacco represents a significant health risk. It is not a safe substitute for smoking cigarettes. It can cause cancer…" Since those that chew or dip leave the tobacco in their mouth for extended periods of time, usually in the same place, this can cause the gums to pull away from the tooth in that area. When the gums pull away from the tooth, sensitive tooth roots are exposed providing an access to the root for any number of problems; sensitivity, decay and infection just to name a few.

  • Sugar

Another of those problems is the side effect of the sugar contained in spit tobacco.  The longer sugar remains in the mouth the more damage it will do. The extended periods that spit tobacco remains in the mouth provide a perfect opportunity for the sugars to work on the tooth root, causing massive tooth decay. Many sports figures, as positive influences to youth, are speaking out against spit tobacco. Torii Hunter, Minnesota Twins American League winner of the Gold Glove award, six years in a row has come out strong against spit tobacco. Olympic gold medal winners, Picabo Street (alpine skiing) and Dominique Dawes (gymnastics) have lent the weight of their names to the campaign against spit tobacco along with the mega-star Jackie Chan.

If you use spit tobacco and want to quit, check out this “Quitting Guide” from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.

Braces aren’t such a bad thing - Advantages of Invisalign®

November 23rd, 2015

While at a social gathering not too long ago, a friend of mine told me his daughter might need to get braces. Naturally, he asked me how long she was going to need them, what kind she should get, and, of course, how much would it cost and will my insurance cover them?

These were all very important questions. I told him to schedule a FREE consultation with us, so I can answer him to the best of my ability.

Many people, like my friend’s daughter are skeptical when it comes to getting braces for numerous reasons such as not being able to eat certain foods, the discomfort that can come from metal, and the overall cost.  I started thinking about how SuperSmile Orthodontics could curb these reservations, and it hit me!

In an effort to give people in Las Vegas, Nevada the perfect smile without breaking the bank, we’re offering a special promotion on Invisalign® for only $2997! Invisalign® is a great alternative to regular braces, since it requires no metal wires, and you can take them out every time you eat.

These braces can cost anywhere from $5,000-8,000, so don’t miss out on this great deal. We know braces can be a scary thing for both the receiver and the person paying for them. In the end, though, a nice, straight smile is totally worth it!

Advantages of Invisalign® over traditional braces

#1. Appearance - Invisalign® Clear Braces Look Better

Invisalign® clear braces are barely noticeable.  They look very much as though the person wearing them is not wearing braces at all.  They are decidedly more attractive than metal braces. You never have to worry about being called a "brace face"!

#2. Comfort - Clear Braces Can Be Removed When Necessary

Invisalign® clear braces are removable.  If, for any reason, the wearer of teeth aligners wishes to remove them for brief periods of time (to eat or drink), he or she may easily do so.

#3. Safety - Invisalign® Clear Braces Reduce Damage to Teeth and Gums

Clear braces are smooth and comfortable. They do not include any sharp edges or protruding edges or bits. Invisalign reduces damage normally caused by wearing braces, including gum disease and cavities.

#4. Duration of Treatment - Invisalign® Clear Braces Straighten Teeth Faster

Invisalign® can take from only one year, to a year and a half to work its magic and straighten your teeth.

#5. Knowing What to Expect - There are No Surprises with Invisalign® Clear Braces

In considering Invisalign®, dental patients undergo treatment planning that is fully computerized.  Therefore, they know exactly what to expect and how long they will need the braces before they begin wearing them.

Overall, Invisalign® offers distinct advantages. They are more comfortable than metal braces, pose fewer risks to teeth and gums,  and provide beautiful smiles much faster.

Anyone considering Invisalign® should book a consultation with Super Smile Orthodontics to determine if he or she is a good candidate to wear them.
