Frequently Asked Questions

It is our priority to answer all of your questions so that you can make the best decisions for your oral health. We invite you to review the following information to help you determine which dental services might be best for your smile.
Is my insurance accepted at your office?

We accept most dental insurance policies.

I don’t have dental insurance. How can I afford treatment?
Dental insurance is not required at Timber Creek Dental. We provide service to all patients with a number of payment options including cash, check, and credit cards. Please feel free to contact our office to arrange a financial plan.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is comprised of a post, which is a screw that is surgically implanted within the jawbone, along with a dental restoration device. A dental implant replaces the root and crown of a missing tooth to provide a long-lasting, stable, and natural looking smile.
What are my options for dental implants?
Dr. Sheils provides both single and multiple tooth replacement. Depending on your personal needs, your dental implant may include a crown, bridge, or complete or partial denture. Our dentist will explain your treatment options during your initial consultation, and help you select the implant that is best for your smile.
Why would I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?
The average person does not have enough space in their mouth for a third set of teeth. When wisdom teeth begin to grow in, they can push other teeth out of alignment or become impacted, creating problems for dental health. We remove wisdom teeth before they can affect the rest of the smile.
What is periodontics?
Periodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with gum health. When gums are not properly cared for, they can develop harmful conditions such as periodontal disease and recession. Dr. Sheils practices periodontics to prevent and treat these conditions so that you can continue to enjoy good oral health.
What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is a chronic infection of gum tissue caused by untreated plaque and Calculus (tartar) along the gum line. Initial symptoms include red, inflamed, and bleeding gums, but can progress to gum recession, deep pockets along the gum line, and tooth loss. We encourage you to visit Timber Creek Dental if you notice a change in your gum health.

Why do I have tooth pain?
Dental pain can be caused by many factors including tooth sensitivity, a food particle stuck in the teeth, dental injury, tooth decay, or infection. If the pain is deep, persistent, and accompanied by swelling of the gum tissue, it may be a sign that the innermost layer of the tooth is infected. In this case, our dentist may need to perform a root canal treatment to save the tooth.
