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.

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.

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?

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 just days away, GoBbLe GoBbLe. That means spending time with family, sleeping in and eating way too much! 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.
