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.

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!

The evolution of SuperSmile Orthodontics!

February 19th, 2016

You came here seeking a "SUPER" smile and that just happens to be Dr. Chamberlain's specialty. You may wonder how we got the name SuperSmile Orthodontics?

The SuperSmile name evolution started when Dr. Chamberlain was just 17. He was raised in Berkeley California. He needed a new belt, so he asked his brother's advice. His brother told him the only place to buy a belt is on Telegraph Avenue. So he ventured out and carefully selected one with a Superman buckle. He was proud to wear something that stood for truth, justice and the American way! He was teased at times but it soon became his icon. It could be polished to a mirror like shine. Unfortunately it was stolen out of his car while he was attending an opera. A fellow classmate at University of California San Francisco knew he missed his inspirational emblem. He bought him a replacement Superman belt buckle. It was a token of friendship and a classmate's belief in him. At this point many of you may have seen him out in the Centennial Hills area wearing it. The belief lives on that there is a little superhero in us all! That is the story behind Dr. Chamberlain naming his office SuperSmile orthodontics.

We are excited to announce that we have a beautiful new sign with SuperSmile on it! Be on the lookout for some fun changes in the office decor in the coming months. We want you to look forward to your appointments and enjoy the time you spend with us.

SuperSmile says it all!

We promote the OrthoEssentials program through Oral-B

February 12th, 2016

Dr. Chamberlain insists his patients to have the best tools for their home care! This is why we gift our newly bracketed patients with the OrthoEssential kit from Oral-B. Our goal at SuperSmile Orthodontics is for you to have a gorgeous, healthy smile at the end of your orthodontic treatment.
The OrthoEssential program is more than just fancy electric toothbrushes with blue tooth for tracking progress on your phone, SuperFloss and great mouthwash! Visit OrthoEssentials at http://www.oralb.com/embraceit/orthoessentials-program

Here is how our OrthoEssentials hygiene program works:
- We ask that each of our patients grade their hygiene when they brush their teeth prior to each appointment.
- If they need improvement, this is a positive way for Dr. Chamberlain or their orthodontic assistant to go over brushing techiniques with them.
- If they are doing great and need no tips at this time, they drop their graded sheet into the entry box at the end of the appointment.
- Each month we do a drawing of those carefully cared for smiles, for a chance to win a SuperSmile sweatshirt!

We love to keep our patients engaged in their treatment and excited to take great care of their smile! Please let us know if you ever have any ideas for patient engagement. We would love to hear from you.
