TMJ & TMD Treatment

Our commitment to your oral health includes any issues or discomfort you may be having within your jaw joint, or TMJ. Dr. Paes is specially trained to treat temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) using the best that modern dentistry has to offer. We understand how disruptive and frustrating jaw pain can be. In many patients, TMD leads to chronic tension headaches, jaw clicking and other symptoms that affect one’s quality of life. To ensure your jaw joint is restored to healthy and comfortable function with general dentistry, choose Town Center Dental of LaGrange for TMJ & TMD treatment in Lagrangeville, Poughkeepsie and the surrounding areas.

Jaw Pain Relief

When the jaw joint and its surrounding muscles undergo excessive stress or tension, it can create problems within your bite and your dental health. In a large majority of cases, TMJ issues are brought on by teeth grinding or a clenching habit. Since many of these patients grind their teeth while they sleep, a custom nighttime mouthguard can be an excellent solution to prevent worn teeth. It will also reduce unnecessary strain on the jaw joint. If your TMD is caused by a misaligned bite, it may be necessary to undergo orthodontic treatment to get jaw pain relief.

Get an Accurate Diagnosis

Regardless of the severity of your jaw symptoms, you can trust Dr. Paes to make an accurate diagnosis on the cause of your specific jaw issues. Our office offers 3D imaging and other advanced equipment to ensure we give the most precise and effective treatment plan for each patient.

Are you suffering from a clicking jaw, limited jaw movement or frequent morning headaches? You may qualify for TMD treatment from Town Center Dental of LaGrange. Contact us today to schedule your appointment. We offer exceptional service with attention to your comfort and convenience. Choose from extended weekday hours, Saturday appointments and same day dentistry if needed. Our office also takes extra measures to make your TMJ treatments affordable. If you are uninsured, ask us about Care Credit or our Dental Savers Plan.


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!

Just visited this office yesterday, by far the best dental experience I've ever had, and this coming from someone who is deathly afraid of dentists, I walked in all anxious and left completely calm, they're wonderful and take all the time you need, highly recommended

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!!!
