Welcome to Our Practice
Dentist Battle Creek, MI – Earl E. Gaball, DDS
At Earl E. Gaball, DDS, we value our patient relationships, making it our priority to deliver gentle compassionate care that you deserve from a dentist in Battle Creek. We work hard to make you feel at ease by providing exceptional patient care in a relaxed, convenient atmosphere. We strive to develop lifelong relationships with our patients by combining the latest dental technology with a professional and compassionate staff. The result is a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.
We also believe that patients should have sufficient information to make educated decisions about their oral health, treatment options and choice of dentist in Battle Creek. You’ll find all of this important information on our website, including directions to our Battle Creek office, service descriptions, patient forms, patient education resources and more.
Relationships are built on consistency. We emphasize routine professional cleanings, oral exams, and oral cancer screenings. These visits, typically scheduled at six-month intervals, support oral health by detecting even the most subtle problems early. In this manner, early-stage gum inflammation or enamel erosion, for instance, can be detected and resolved early – before painful complications that require more extensive, costly restorative treatment arise and threaten the integrity of your natural teeth.
Whenever possible, we recommend treatments and techniques that require little to no anesthetic. These conservative and non-invasive approaches are generally well-tolerated and do not produce the pain that requires pain management, such as anesthetic. However, if you are apprehensive about your upcoming procedure, we offer many options. So, you can relax in this dentist’s chair. These sedative methods include oral conscious sedation with a pill that is selected based on your needs.
We’ve also invested in sophisticated technologies designed to facilitate the most comfortable, precise, and safe experience at the dentist’s office. These technologies include digital x-rays, which are associated with far less radiation exposure than conventional radiography. They also allow us to take clear pictures of the inside of your mouth. We use these images to “show” (not just “tell”) you what is occurring in your mouth. It aids in education, empowering patients with the information that helps them be better dental care consumers, and making the most informed treatment decisions. Laser technologies, too, are a great adjunct in treatments such as gum therapy. They support gentle care and aid in fast, healthy healing.
- You are one of a kind. So, there is no other care or treatment plan that is quite like yours. One of the ways we can accomplish genuinely individualized oral care is by offering comprehensive services. We provide a range of products and treatments that resonate with a wide range of people. These preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services include:
- Preventive and diagnostic – Oral check-ups/exams, oral cancer screenings, professional cleanings, non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy, dental sealants, oral appliance therapy (mouthguards for sports, nightguards for bruxism), fluoride supplementation
- Restorative full-coverage crowns, bridges, partials, complete dentures, implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures, root canal therapy, extractions
- Cosmetic – porcelain veneers (indirect veneers), in-office whitening, take-home whitening, “cosmetic braces” or Invisalign® treatment, tooth-colored fillings
We are also privileged to accommodate emergency appointments and offer relief from the pain and other symptoms caused by dysfunction of oral structures such as the jaw joints (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). As long as this list may be, it only presents a partial list of the ways that we partner with you and your family. We also account for you as a whole person, not just your mouth. As such, we are happy to offer options such as financing to help you overcome another type of dental fear: fear of the dental bill!
