Sedation Dentistry

If you feel anxious or fearful about going to the dentist, you are not alone. A large number of children and adults suffer from some degree of dental anxiety. Unfortunately, this is what keeps many patients from getting the dental treatments their smile needs to stay healthy and beautiful. At Town Center Dental of LaGrange, we have equipped ourselves to handle patients with dental fear or anxiety. Our menu of options in sedation dentistry allows patients of all ages to enjoy a relaxing, stress-free visit to the dentist. Dr. Paes is gentle, compassionate and qualified to offer both oral conscious sedation as well as IV sedation, depending on your needs.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation offers a mild to moderate level of sedation that is between nitrous oxide inhalation and deeper IV sedation. This type of sedation method involves taking a prescribed pill before you come to the dental office. Dr. Paes can prescribe a low dosage oral sedative that allows you to remain awake and able to communicate with us, yet also very relaxed and worry-free. You must bring a friend or family member with you to your appointment when participating in oral conscious sedation so that they can drive you home after your procedure.

IV Sedation

It can be difficult to find a dentist who is qualified to administer IV sedation. Dr. Paes offers IV sedation to patients who are severely anxious, those with special needs and to those that are undergoing a lengthy or complex dental procedure. IV sedation can always be titrated and controlled throughout your procedure. It is a safe and highly effective form of sedation that we are proud to offer at Town Center Dental of LaGrange.

Needing sedation dentistry is nothing to be ashamed of. At Town Center Dental of LaGrange, we want to know your specific concerns and areas of uneasiness about receiving dental care. Whether you suffer from a severe gag reflex or had a bad dental visit as a child, we will do our best to eliminate your anxiety and give you the comfortable and rewarding experience you deserve. Our modern patient amenities and cutting-edge technology also support our mission to put your comfort first.

To determine which level of sedation dentistry is best for you, contact Town Center Dental of LaGrange today. 


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!!!
