5-stars isn’t enough. It’s as if they practice professionalism. Well kept, clean facility. The front desk worker is as calm as a cucumber, and the Doctors are thorough and respectful. Will most certainly be happy to return, and can’t wait for the next appointment. Great Job guys and keep doing what your doing.

Diana C.
This place is awesome! My son got this super nice hygienist named Mary Ellen and he said that he was going to give this place a good review too because of her! 5 stars, my son is no longer afraid of the dentists office after he switched dentists. I have always had dental anxiety but they're so nice & gentle that I will definitely come back again!
Lisa T.
I had been putting off a dental implant for over a year - finally decided to go have it done. Absolutely NO pain whatsoever! Not sure how it’s possible - but Dr. Pais has a kind demeanor and managed the whole process without pain, including the next day. I felt nothing! Don’t put it off - I’d highly recommend Dr. Pais for the procedure!
Irish C.
I was so scared to get a tooth extraction and implants but everyone was so calming and reassuring during the entire procedure. The doctor told me about each step as he went; the nurse was so kind and gentle. It barely hurt at all! They did a fantastic job.
Deb A.
Great staff and service … from Receptionists, to Hygienists, to Dental Assistants, to Dentists. By the way, the whole office is beautiful!!!
Carolyn R.
I saw Dr.Abrahamson. The facility is very nice, the staff is professional and very friendly. I am super happy with every aspect of my visit. I recommend Dr Abrahamson for all dental care.
Katie F.
The office runs on time, I was taken back not minutes after my arrival. My hygienist Jordan was excellent. She was thorough, meticulous and explained everything she was doing. Dr. Paes was great too, addressed my concerns and gave me reasonable plans going forward. I will definitely be staying as a permanent patient at Town Center Dental.
Kim C.
Town Central of Lagrange is a Wonderful facility. I just had my first painless root canal done. Everyone there is kind and the place is immaculate. Would definitely recommend anyone.
Carla G.
When I say I’m scared of the dentist I’m scared. I recently had my wisdom teeth removed with iv sedation 4 days ago. The surgeon and his assistant were amazing. They made me feel very comfortable. After the surgery of course I needed some down time that day and the next morning I was a little sore. With the medicine prescribed to me I only feel some soreness but I was able to take care of my 4 kids with no problem. I recommend Town Center Dental 100%.
Kay D.

Recognizing a Dental Emergency

Dental emergencies come in various forms, but the common thread is the need for immediate attention to prevent further complications. Here are some signs that indicate you should seek immediate dental care:

1. Severe Toothache A persistent and excruciating toothache can indicate an underlying issue like a dental infection or a damaged tooth. Don't endure the pain; contact us right away.

2. Knocked-Out Tooth If you or a family member has had a tooth knocked out due to an accident or injury, time is of the essence. Retrieve the tooth (holding it by the crown, not the root), rinse it gently with water if dirty, and try to place it back into the socket. If this is not possible, store it in milk or your saliva and contact us immediately.

3. Chipped or Fractured Tooth A chipped or fractured tooth may expose sensitive nerve endings and increase the risk of infection. Save any broken tooth fragments if possible and seek emergency dental care.

4. Lost Filling or Crown Losing a dental filling or crown can leave your tooth vulnerable to damage and sensitivity. Contact us to repair or replace the restoration promptly.

5. Gum or Tooth Bleeding Uncontrolled gum or tooth bleeding can indicate various issues, including gum disease or a dental injury. Seek urgent care to diagnose and address the cause of the bleeding.

6. Dental Abscess A dental abscess is a painful and potentially dangerous infection that requires immediate attention. Symptoms may include severe tooth pain, facial swelling, and fever.

Why Choose Immediate Emergency Care?

Seeking prompt emergency dental care offers several crucial benefits:

1. Pain Relief Dental emergencies often come with severe pain and discomfort. Immediate care can provide you with relief and prevent the pain from worsening

2. Preventing Complications Ignoring a dental emergency can lead to more extensive and expensive treatments down the road. Addressing the issue promptly can prevent further damage and complications.

3. Protecting Your Smile A dental emergency can jeopardize your smile's health and appearance. Quick action can preserve your teeth and prevent permanent damage.

Frequently Asked Questions Emergency Dentistry

What should I do if my child knocks out a baby tooth?

If a baby tooth is knocked out prematurely, it's essential not to try to reinsert it, as this could damage the emerging permanent tooth. Contact our office for guidance, but typically, no immediate treatment is needed for a lost baby tooth.

What should I do if I have a dental emergency outside of regular office hours?

If you experience a dental emergency outside of our regular office hours, please contact our emergency number for guidance. We are dedicated to providing you with the care you need, even during non-business hours.

Can you save a knocked-out tooth?

In many cases, a knocked-out tooth can be saved if you seek immediate care. Rinse the tooth gently with water, being careful not to remove any attached tissues. Try to place the tooth back into its socket, or if that's not possible, keep it moist by placing it in a glass of milk or between your cheek and gums. Contact our office immediately for further instructions.

How can I prevent dental emergencies?

While not all dental emergencies can be prevented, there are steps you can take to minimize the risk:

  • Maintain excellent oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly.
  • Wear protective gear during contact sports.
  • Avoid chewing on hard objects or ice.
  • Don't use your teeth to open packages or bottles.
  • Attend regular dental check-ups to address any potential issues early.

What if I have dental anxiety or fear of treatment during a dental emergency?

We understand that dental emergencies can be stressful, and dental anxiety is common. Our team is experienced in providing care with compassion and understanding. We offer sedation dentistry options to help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during treatment. Please let us know about your concerns, and we will work with you to ensure a positive experience.

Is an abscessed tooth a dental emergency?

Yes, an abscessed tooth is considered a dental emergency. Dental abscesses are painful infections that can lead to severe complications if not treated promptly. Seek immediate care if you suspect you have an abscessed tooth, as it may require drainage and antibiotic treatment.

What should I do if I experience severe tooth pain?

Severe tooth pain is often a sign of an underlying issue, such as an infection or dental injury. Contact our office as soon as possible to schedule an emergency dental exam. In the meantime, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers as directed and avoid applying aspirin directly to the painful area, as this can cause tissue damage.
