Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a win-win solution for patients who need it. Not only does it eliminate the disruptive pain of an infected tooth, but it can also save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. Dr. Paes is a skilled dentist who delivers excellent results in this type of endodontic treatment. His refined techniques combined with the latest dental technology make this a comfortable and effective procedure at Town Center Dental of LaGrange. Our office serves Lagrangeville, Poughkeepsie and the surrounding areas with a full menu of affordable dental services, including those that save infected teeth.

Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!

Despite your assumptions or misconceptions, root canals are not painful. Our office uses modern techniques and anesthetics that reduce and even eliminate discomfort. In fact, most patients report that their root canal was no more painful than getting a dental filling. For those who are anxious about the procedure, Dr. Paes can administer sedation dentistry.

An infected tooth, however, is quite painful. This is due to the fact that bacteria has penetrated and infected the inner chamber of the tooth. This is where the nerves reside. Therefore, extreme sensitivity is a common symptom of an infected tooth. If left alone, the infection could damage the entire tooth structure and cut off its nutrient supply. At this point, the tooth would need to be extracted. Missing teeth cause adjacent teeth to shift and can lead to bone loss if not replaced by a dental implant.

To avoid further pain and tooth loss, Town Center Dental of LaGrange offers root canal therapy. It is a straightforward procedure that involves removing the infected or inflamed tooth pulp and sanitizing the interior of the tooth. The area is then reshaped and filled with a special filling material to prevent further infection. In many cases, a dental crown is needed after a root canal to ensure the tooth regains proper strength and durability.

Have an infected tooth? Trust your smile to Dutchess County's most trusted family dentist. Not only are our services affordable, but they can be scheduled at a time that is best for you. Contact Town Center Dental of LaGrange today to schedule an appointment. We offer evening hours, Saturday appointments and emergency dental care for your family.


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!

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!!!
