How can we help you?

When it comes to your oral health, we understand that you may have questions – and you should!

At Sladky Family Dental, we encourage our patients to ask questions and learn more about their oral health because it empowers them to make the right decisions for their dental care.

Here are some of the questions we hear most often; however, if your question is not answered here, feel free to give us call!

  • You may be numb for several hours following the procedure. Avoid chewing in the area until numbness wears off.

  • You may experience temperature sensitivity for a few weeks. This should subside over time.
  • If temporary crown placed, avoid sticky or crunchy foods. Keep teeth clean by brushing and flossing, but be sure to pull the floss out towards your cheek so as not to pop the temporary off. Please call us if your temporary crown comes loose.
  • If permanent crown cemented, wait 24 hours before resuming normal use.

Dental Insurance | Glendale WI DentistWe know that dental insurance can be confusing; this is especially true because every plan is unique in its coverage. For this reason, our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always on hand to help you understand how to navigate and maximize your insurance benefits.

Most insurance plans will pay a percentage of your treatment cost, after a deductible and up to a maximum, and then you’re responsible for the remaining balance. We will always discuss treatment costs and insurance benefit coverage with you prior to starting any treatment procedure. This way, there are no surprises when you come in for treatment, and you can feel comfortable about fitting your care into your budget.

We never want finances to deter our patients from getting the dental care they need, and delaying your needed treatment often results in even bigger problems for your oral health. This is why we offer a number of convenient payment options to help you get your treatment done when you need it. This includes options for breaking treatment costs into affordable monthly payments. Contact our office to learn more about your options and get your treatment scheduled.
