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.)

  • Not only do braces cost less now then they did in the '60s and '70s, but they're better too!

    Braces in the 1960s and '70s cost around $2,000, but adjusted for inflation, they're much more affordable today. But do you have to pay a premium to get Invisalign clear braces?
