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!
Hello again:) We would like to give you an update on some exciting things going on at SuperSmile Orthodontics. We hope you have a safe and happy holiday!
Check out our 2016 Holiday video
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. 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?

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.

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-
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.

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.
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.
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.

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!

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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.

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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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
