Comments

When I met Dr. Fernandez for the first time she told me that my case was difficult and challenging due to the fact that I have several dental implants which aren’t moveable teeth. I remember her telling me that she enjoys challenges and it may take 12-18 months in order for me to complete my Invisalign treatment. Amazingly to both of us, I completed my treatment in only 10 months. It was probably due to her excellent case planning, my commitment to wear the aligners as instructed and my teeth moved more easily than expected. I’m thrilled with my new smile and am no longer self conscious when taking photos and functionally it’s much easier to eat with straight rather than misaligned teeth. Your staff was both pleasant and professional and I truly enjoyed my visits to your office. Thank you Dr. Fernandez for a job well done!
Thank you so much! Tristen was so thrilled to receive mail in his name. 😀 Headed to Starbucks tomorrow for a sweet treat! Such a nice gesture. Thanks again!!
Tristen is all set. Day 1 of invisilign. Dr. Fernandez and her team at Robbinsville Orthodontics are amazing! Very knowledgeable, professional and a welcoming office environment. I highly recommend Dr. Fernandez for your orthodontic needs...

It's National Day of Unplugging 🔌and after I'm done doing some treatment plans 👩🏻‍⚕️and creating this post👩🏻‍💻, I will attempt to do some digital detox and peel myself away from my personal addictions: my laptop and my phone, (while the kiddos are at school for the morning).

I try to be mindful of being present in the moment so if I'm home, home🏡 and family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦are my focus and if I'm at work, patient care 🦷is my focus. But it is inevitable that personal and professional obligations will intertwine, as evidenced by this particular photo. Finding a delicate balance is key. But at the end of the day, family will always come first and I will happily unplug for them. #MyWhy What's yours?

✨PATIENT HIGHLIGHT
Meet Ann 👋🏻. She teaches 👩🏻‍🏫social studies 🌎to 6th and 7th graders in the NYC school district. She goes to Jersey Strong Gym💪🏼, taking Zumba 💃🏻classes regularly, and in 2019, saw an ad for Robbinsville Ortho while working out. She had braces previously (TWICE🤯) but wasn't completely happy with the results and thought that seeing our ad was a literal sign for her to do something to finally perfect her teeth.

She started @invisalign treatment in February 2020, just before we all realized a pandemic was about to rock our world. Thankfully, 2021 is looking up 👊🏼and Ann just finished treatment with flying colors, just in time for her to return to in-person teaching 🙌🏼once again. So happy 🥳that she can share her beautiful smile both on screen and off (but under a mask) because anyone lucky enough to know her can attest to the fact that she exudes beauty, warmth, intelligence, and makes you feel like a better person.

Watch her testimonial in its entirety to learn about one of life's biggest pearls...

How cute is the fact that the last day of National Children's Dental Health Month 🪥is also National Tooth Fairy Day?!🦷🧚🏻‍♀️

Also cute 😍is this 7 year old patient's mouth. She has an adorable smile to begin with but a closer look shows that she is developing some shark 🦈teeth. Kidding 😂

This patient has her lower permanent central incisors starting to erupt (1's) behind her baby central incisors (A's). Her baby lateral incisors (B's) are actually FUSED to her baby canines (C's).

💡Baby teeth are named by letters. Permanent are named by numbers.

💡It is totally normal to have permanent teeth erupt behind baby teeth.

💡It is NOT normal to have teeth fused together. Because they share the same root, they are counted as 1 tooth and usually means a permanent tooth will be missing. In this case, she is missing 2 permanent teeth.

On a brighter note, this girl is about to hit the jackpot 💸because the tooth fairy will surely be visiting soon when she loses her two lower front baby teeth (A's).

So much info to absorb on her first visit to the orthodontist!

💡Diagnosis: Severe upper and lower crowding, Missing lower permanent lateral incisors, Moderate overbite. (X-rays were taken to further support the diagnosis)

💡Treatment: NONE. Will monitor her growth and development every 6-12 months

A picture is worth a thousand words!

PATIENT A: 11 y/o female, good oral hygiene

PATIENT B: 12 y/o male, poor oral hygiene

Both patients had similar issues: crowding, deep bite (can’t see bottom front teeth), Class II occlusion (upper arch further out, lower arch further back).

Both patients were treated with custom #FernandezInvisalign.

Patient A followed instructions and wore her trays (aligners).

Patient B was compliant for 2 visits and then did not return to the office until months later.

Whether you’re a child or an adult, rest assured:🤓

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month😁🪥🦷

Meet Milo. He was 8 years old when he presented to the office with an anterior crossbite and severe crowding.

💡An ideal bite is similar to a lid on a jar where the lid (top teeth) fits securely and perfectly on the jar (bottom teeth).

💡A crossbite is when the lid of the jar appears to be dented and therefore does not allow it to fit on the outside of the jar.

💡Crossbites can occur in the front (anterior), in the back (posterior), one side, or even both sides.

💡Crossbites are easier to correct the sooner they are detected, which makes them one of the most common reasons why young children can benefit from early interceptive (Phase I) orthodontic treatment.

Milo’s crossbite was corrected, space was made to accommodate eruption of his upper lateral incisors and future eruption of his upper canines. I think he’s smiling a little bigger and prouder too🤩

Have a question about your child’s teeth? DM us, comment below 👇🏼, or call📞us to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Looks can be deceiving. This patient’s main concern was that she wanted all space to be closed. To the average eye, it may appear to be a simple case. In fact, some would even consider DIY orthodontic treatment where you take molds on yourself and get clear aligners sent to you. The problem with DIY treatment is that you are not monitored by a trained orthodontist and full diagnostic records, including xrays, are not taken.

Based on this patient’s xray alone, these are the things that would otherwise go undetected:
▪️significant bone loss
▪️significant root resorption (shortening) of the upper central incisors
▪️tipping of the lower back molars secondary to premature loss of permanent teeth

Clinical intra-oral examination shows:
▪️severe mobility of the lower right 2nd molar
▪️slight to moderate mobility of all front teeth

My treatment recommendation: No (orthodontic) Treatment

I opted to refer this patient to a periodontist, a dentist specializing in taking care of your gums and underlying bone.

If the foundation of your mouth is not stable, the movement and stability of the teeth are questionable and likely have a long-term poor prognosis.

Safety (and health) first!☝🏼

FYI, if orthodontic treatment was started without the guidance of an orthodontist, this patient would likely lose her 2 upper front teeth, among others 🤯😱

Whether you’re in braces or clear aligners, wearing your rubberbands (aka elastics) according to your specific instructions is an important factor in correcting your bite. So here are some quick tips for rubberband wear:

1. Full-time wear: All. The. Time. While you’re awake. While you’re sleeping. (Except when eating and brushing your teeth). 20-22 hours is ideal.

2. For full-time wear: Change your rubberbands between 3-5x/day to coincide with meals and brushing. Take them off before you’re about to eat, eat your meal/snack, brush your teeth, and place a NEW set of rubberbands on.

3. Night-time only: 10-12 hours is ideal. A good time to put them on is right after you eat dinner and brush your teeth. If you end up having a snack before bed time, take them off, brush, and put a new set on.

4. If you don’t change them frequently enough, they will likely snap and break and therefore won’t be able to exert the necessary pressure to actually work.

5. If you keep them on while you’re eating, you might swallow them. But not to worry, they’re zero calories 😉and non-toxic. The downside of eating with them on is that eating is probably not as enjoyable and they’re likely to snap and break. See number 4.

6. Everyone is different. Every mouth is different. Rubberbands can be worn in many different configurations and the prescribed one for you is specific for you alone. Wearing them ‘like your friend does’ doesn’t mean you’re wearing them correctly.

7. Wearing them correctly and faithfully will like decrease your treatment time.

8. Wearing them incorrectly and sporadically will increase your treatment time.

9. I will know immediately at your next appointment how well you wore them even if you are lying through your teeth and even though I may not necessarily blatantly call you out😂

10. Don’t double up on your rubberbands the night before or the week before your appointment. It will exert too much pressure, it will hurt, and it will ironically SLOW down movement. Also see number 9. 😘

This beautiful patient had a misshapen, chipped front tooth that made it appear shorter and smaller than its matching adjacent front tooth. Working together with her dentist, we decided the plan of action would be to angulate the central incisors in the proper direction first with orthodontic treatment, restore the upper left central incisor with cosmetic bonding, and continue aligning the rest of her teeth to complete the case. Just five months into @invisalign treatment, she now has a more even, esthetic look in the front and can confidently continue the rest of her #clearalignertherapy. Her case is far from done, but being able to address her chief complaint early on and communication and treatment planning with her dentist has set this case up for success👊🏼

Meet the Doctor

“Smiles are always in fashion.”—Dr. Fernandez

Born in sunny California and raised in central New Jersey, Dr. Celest Fernandez-Vives cannot deny that while she absolutely loves the west coast, she is a Jersey girl at heart.

Dr. Fernandez, as her patients know her, grew up in Hamilton Square, NJ and always had an inclination to practice medicine. But while attending Steinert High School, she got her first part-time job at a local dental practice where she began working as a sterilization technician and was exposed to every dental specialty, eventually assisting in various dental procedures. It was there that she realized her dream of becoming an orthodontist.

After graduating high school at the top of her class, Dr. Fernandez left her hometown to attend college at Boston University in Massachusetts, where she balanced school, working part-time as a phlebotomist, and making time for her favorite hobby: dancing and performing in a hip-hop dance group. Dr. Fernandez earned her Bachelor of Arts in biology with a minor concentration in French and also studied abroad in Ecuador to attend the Universidad de San Francisco de Quito in the division of conservation biology.
