Please highlight any unique services that your practice offers its patients. I use an iTero and Lythos scanner, which take highly accurate digital models of your teeth and jaws, eliminating the need for messy and uncomfortable impressions. The digital models we create are then used to create custom computer designed braces, wires and aligners that are unique for each patient, which helps reduce treatment time and discomfort, and ensure a custom smile is designed for each of our patients.

r. Salvatore J. Carcara is a board-certified orthodontist with practices in Westwood and Allendale, NJ.

What’s the most common misconception among your patients regarding orthodontic care? There are two big misconceptions I see. First, two-phase treatment does not mean braces twice. The first phase is the interceptive phase or “jaw moving phase” designed to improve the jaw alignment and bite in poorly growing children. The second is that “all orthodontic and Invisalign treatment are the same.” This isn’t true at all. In my opinion, a specialist in orthodontics is best suited to provide orthodontic treatment. Also, there are both artistic and scientific aspects to orthodontics, and selecting an orthodontist who listens to your concerns and develops a customized treatment plan and smile design for you is crucial to obtaining a beautiful result and maintaining that result. Describe the patient-doctor relationship at your practice. Known as “the neighborhood orthodontist,” we support our patients both in the office and in their communities by providing school talks, donations to local organizations they’re members of, donations to schools they attend and sponsoring activities they participate in. Our patients are “more than just a name on a chart.” They become part of our family.
