Early Cavity Detection Gainesville, GA

Visiting the dentist on a regular basis is an essential component of maintaining optimal oral health. Not only do your teeth get a thorough cleaning, but also your entire mouth gets an exam that to detect for serious oral health issues. One of the key components to a dental exam is the detection of cavities. Cavities are permanently damaged areas of holes created in the tooth enamel. Cavities that are not treated in an optimal time frame will grow larger and larger and will infect the gums and neighboring teeth with their decay. One of the latest advancements in dental technology is the use of laser cavity detection in order to catch cavities early on in order to treat them before they become a major concern.

DIAGNOdent is a small laser that is used by dentists for an accurate detection of cavities in their earliest stages. People worldwide place a huge emphasis on achieving and maintaining a beautiful smile. Early cavity detection is a huge component in helping patients keep their mouth as healthy, complete, and beautiful as possible. The DIAGNOdent laser is a small and painless device that is placed on the surface of the teeth in order to detect any tooth decay below the tooth’s surface. Tooth enamel is the hardest substance found in the human body, and it can prevent dentists from catching issues below the enamel until they make themselves present. Early cavity detection with DIAGNOdent allows dentists to identify and treat cavities before they develop into a major oral health issue.

Our Patient Reviews

Bev M.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

This is by far the best dental group I have been to in a long time. The staff is wonderful and caring. From the front office to the Dentists are a class act. Very kind and explain step by step. High quality work. Don't plan on going anywhere else. My husband has had the same experience. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Tell them Lorrie sent you

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
