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.)

  • Thrilled with my progress - starting week 8 on Tuesday. WOW what a difference! Of all the things I didn't expect, my EARS feel better! I've had a constant problem with double ear infections, and now, they are draining, I can hear better and they don't itch at all. Bone movement? I don't know. I just know I'm smiling a ton more, feeling great and wish I would have started my Invisalign treatment with Dr. Cater Galante Orthodontic Specialists years ago. I'm so thankful!

  • The prospect of having a perfect smile in time for a special event is a big motivator for many considering orthodontic correction. However, given the length of time that braces need to move teeth, people worry that their teeth won't be ready. Now our office offers a simple, easy to use device called AcceleDent, which can cut your treatment time in half. It's a comfortable mouthpiece that is worn 20 minutes a day, and uses safe vibrations to help teeth move faster, so you can be ready for that wedding, graduation, reunion, prom, or career advancement with the smile you've always wanted. Call us today for a free consultation!

    Whether it's a wedding, graduation, reunion, or prom, speed up your orthodontic treatment to be ready with a beautiful smile sooner than you think.

  • 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.
