Invisalign Braces - Sacramento's Elite ProvidersAs Super Elite Providers of Invisalign, we are the number one practice in the Sacramento area for experience and expertise in both Adult Invisalign and Invisalign for teens. If you are looking for Invisalign to straighten your teeth, our doctors treat most adults and almost 70% of teens with Invisalign.

While the doctors believe in seeing children for an initial complimentary consultation at age 7, we will make recommendations about early interceptive treatment only if absolutely necessary, otherwise, we will continue to monitor your child’s development free of charge and keep you updated on important milestones of their dental development.

We are totally paperless and digital and use only the most modern and up-to-date orthodontic products available. With our advanced scheduling system, we are able to see patients on time and complete treatment on time with your expectations met and often surpassed. Our scheduling coordinators are able to handle your last minute schedule changes and make sure you are well taken care of at each visit.

Cater, Galante and Team provide Invisalign, Damon, Clear Braces and Insignia custom braces for adults and children living in Rocklin, Lincoln, Loomis, Granite Bay, Roseville, Citrus Heights, Grass Valley, Penn Valley, Nevada City, Auburn, Colfax, Beale AFB, Plumas Lake, Carmichael, El Dorado Hills, Placerville, Cameron Park, Rescue, Folsom, Shingle Springs, Fair Oaks, and Sacramento.

What You Should Know Before Choosing an Orthodontist

Orthodontic treatment for you and your family is an investment in the health and beauty of your teeth and smile and a decision that should be made with knowledge and thorough research. (Watch this video to learn how a patient in our practice was re-treated successfully using Invisalign, but unfortunately, had invested thousands of dollars on previous treatment in another office that ultimately was unsuccessful.)

  • Adults used to have to put up with aging dentition, or the gradual shifting, crowding, and wearing of teeth. For many, wearing metal braces just wasn't worth a straighter smile. But now, with removable and practically invisible correcting technology, adults can finally feel good about their smile, without having a mouth full of metal.

    Aging dentition is the gradual shifting, twisting, crowding, and wearing of teeth that usually comes with age. The good news is, it's reversible.

    Although they're small and thin, the rubber bands your orthodontist gives you play an incredibly important role in helping your teeth realign. They help to "suspend" teeth in their sockets and absorb shock whenever you bite or chew.
