It is always our goal to help patients retain their natural teeth with general dentistry for as long as possible. However, in the event that a tooth needs to be removed, you can trust us to deliver the highest standard of care. Dr. Paes is a skilled dentist who uses refined techniques when extracting teeth. He preserves as much healthy bone structure as possible and minimizes your discomfort during the extraction process. While a filling, root canal or crown can often save a damaged tooth, there are times when a tooth is simply beyond repair.
A tooth may need to be extracted in the following situations:
- Extensive decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Severe infection
- Orthodontic correction
- Broken/fractured tooth or tooth roots
- Impacted teeth (wisdom teeth)
Whether you need to have a single tooth or multiple teeth extracted, you can depend on Town Center Dental of LaGrange to provide affordable and comfortable care. Dr. Paes will inform you on what to expect during your procedure as well as explain your post-operative instructions to expedite your healing at home. We also make sure patients understand the importance of replacing missing teeth. Our office offers dental implants, dentures and bridges for your convenience.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth refer to the third and final set of molars in the back of your mouth. Unfortunately, many patients do not have enough jaw space for these teeth to emerge in proper fashion. As a result, it is common for wisdom teeth to come in sideways, become impacted or only partially erupt through the gumline. This can cause significant problems, ranging from jaw pain and jaw cysts, bite misalignment and a higher risk for decay.
To help you avoid these consequences, Dr. Paes offers wisdom teeth removal. We evaluate candidacy for wisdom teeth extraction in patients who are in their mid to late teens. When possible, we encourage patients to take a proactive approach and remove the wisdom teeth before they cause problems. However, Dr. Paes can perform wisdom teeth removal for adults of all ages.
It can be intimidating to have a natural tooth removed. At Town Center Dental of LaGrange, we do everything we can to reduce your anxiety about the procedure and boost your comfort along the way. Our relaxing amenities, state-of-the-art technology and friendly staff can instantly put you at ease. We also offer sedation dentistry to ensure your experience is as painless as possible.
