Treatment for Gum Disease

Your gums are the foundation of your smile. At Town Center Dental of LaGrange, we help patients realize the importance of optimal gum health. While we are meticulous about evaluating your gum health with general dentistry, we also have the ability to treat your gums if they are infected or diseased. Dr. Paes understands the devastating effects that gum disease can have, and he is equipped to restore your oral health with affordable and advanced treatment options.

Untreated gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. It has been linked to several serious medical conditions, including stroke, heart disease, diabetes and premature birth. Town Center Dental of LaGrange is proud to help patients avoid these consequences by offering effective periodontal therapy in our office. Whether you have mild gum disease (gingivitis) or advanced periodontitis, Dr. Paes is qualified to reverse or manage your condition.

Symptoms and Causes of Gum Disease

While there are certain risk factors for gum disease, including family history and tobacco use, most gum disease begins with poor oral hygiene. When plaque and bacteria are not properly removed with routine brushing and flossing, they can accumulate along the tooth roots and lead to infection in the gum tissues. The first stages of gum disease are the most easily treated. However, when gum disease is not addressed, the gums begin to recede and form deep pockets around the tooth roots. This harbors further bacteria and puts the surrounding bone at risk for infection as well. At its most advanced stages, gum disease can cause tooth instability and tooth loss.

Recognizing the symptoms of gum disease is important. If you are suffering from the following, call Town Center Dental of LaGrange for periodontal therapy:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Painful chewing
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Receding gums

Whether we are restoring your gum health or enhancing your smile appearance, you can trust our Lagrangeville dental practice for superior, patient-centered care. We have the unique ability to give each member of your family a comfortable and rewarding dental care experience. Regardless of the condition of your oral health or the size of your dental care budget, we make it possible to gain the smile you deserve without extra stress.

Contact Town Center Dental of LaGrange today to schedule your gum disease evaluation with Dr. Paes.


I needed to change dentists and Town Center Dental was recommended by a friend. It was the best decision I made... Dr Paes is amazing, he explained everything that he did and was very gentle. My dental hygienist was amazing and the staff was friendly and accommodating. You couldn't ask for more from a dental office. I highly recommend this group...

I had not been to the dentist in quite some time and will never miss another visit after receiving the best service ever. Aleena was my hygienist and was absolutely wonderful. There was a lot of cleaning that needed to be done and she made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. She was extremely informative and it was a great learning experience. I would recommend TCD to anyone and look forward to my next visit. Thank you Aleena!

Everyone in this office were very friendly and knowledgeable. As a new patient I felt they took their time to know me and did a great job. I would highly recommend converting to town center dental. From the staff in the front to Dr Paes and his excellent hygienist Sandy I find everyone to be warm and caring.

Dr. Wilkie Paes and his assistant Lea work well as a team. They are very personable and professional. I had a replacement crown and a new crown done together. Dr. Paes walks you through the process. The professionalism, quality and workmanship are impeccable. From the moment you walk in the door you will find the entire staff are very pleasant and professional. The practice has the latest technology. If you are looking for a dental office....... look no further! Highly Recommended!

Had a great experience at Town Center Dental today. Started with a warm greeting by the friendly front desk staff. Then, MaryEllen, my hygienist, was thorough, friendly and explained each and every step of the process from x-rays to my final cleaning. Dr. Paes then did a complete exam. He was calming, communicative and highly informative. Dr. Paes and Town Center Dental is now the dental office for me any my family.

Mitch G.

This dentistry office is absolutely incredible. I do not like going to any doctor's office and I was not intimated by any staff member and especially Dr. Paes, the dentist. He thoroughly explained all the procedures and payment plans. The prices are VERY reasonable for someone without insurance. He spent a large amount of time with me discussing insurance and dental maintenance. The television screen of your teeth was pretty cool! Sunglasses to wear to dim the light was a nice too. Great dentistry office!!!
