Laser dentistry is gentle dentistry fearful, anxious patients welcome!

At Earl E. Gaball, DDS in Battle Creek, Michigan, we take great pride in our gentle approach to dental care. Our kind manner and warm and inviting surroundings are complemented by technologies that help to put even the most apprehensive and fearful patients at ease. 

Laser dentistry at our office  

Dentists like Dr. Gaball use lasers to support the most comfortable treatment and the best experience at our practice. When the laser device is directed toward the treatment area, the light from the laser beam produces powerful energy that can then be used to manipulate hard tissues (teeth) and soft tissues (gums) gently, safely, and precisely. As such, lasers are incredibly versatile. They can be used to treat numerous oral conditions and many different types of patients. 

Dr. Gaball uses the diode laser, a noninvasive, pen-sized multi-tasking tool for cutting, coagulating blood vessels, cauterizing nerve endings, and sterilizing wounds without the scary scalpel. Benefits of such laser technology include: 

  • Discomfort is minimized during treatment
  • Reduced pain also means a decreased need for pain-relieving anesthesia 
  • Elimination of familiar sources of dental fear and anxiety, including needles, cutting instruments, and dental drills
  • Facilitates conservative, tooth- and tissue-preserving treatment
  • Reduced risk of bleeding, swelling, and other complications following treatment 
  • Promotes fast recovery and healing  

The diode laser can be used to support a variety of low-risk, precision, and gentle restorative, periodontal (gum), and implant procedures. 

Speaking of gum disease, we also offer innovative homecare treatments such as Perio Restore®. This peroxide-based oral cleansing gel may be delivered to the teeth via specialized trays worn from the comfort and convenience of home. It is an excellent complement with in-office procedures, such as laser periodontal therapy. Additionally, Perio Restore® is another new product from DenMat®, a leader in state-of-the-art solutions for dental practices. These solutions include light-based dental devices, like our very own diode laser. 

Laser dentistry means many different things. It can be used for treatments ranging from removal of decay for filling preparation to the contouring of gummy tissue for periodontal therapy for cosmetic purposes.
