Pediatric Dentistry/Dentistry for Kids
Drs. Heringhaus General Dentistry takes great pride in our children’s dentistry services. From their very first dental appointment to routine care throughout their childhood, we love caring for our pediatric patients. We also make it a point to teach you, their parents, how to care for your child’s teeth!
Teeth begin erupting between 6-12 months and will continue until 20 teeth are present around the age of 3. It’s very important to monitor your child’s teeth development at an early age. As a kid’s dentist in and around Mansfield, Ohio, we feel it’s important to make a child’s visit enjoyable, so we use simple terms to explain practices and procedures to kids. We understand that a trip to the dentist is less frightening when things have been explained and our patients know what to expect.
After a child’s visit, they are given the opportunity to select a prize from the Prize Room for a small gift, and if they have had a good checkup, they can become a member of the No Cavity Club. They will have their picture taken and be able to hang it on the No Cavity Club board in our waiting room. At each month’s end, one child’s picture is selected at random to be that month’s No Cavity Club prize winner! Each winner receives a gift certificate for Barnes and Noble where they can purchase a book of their choice.
Whether the child is having their teeth cleaned, sealants placed, fillings done or even having a tooth removed, our hope is to make the process easy for them so they will want to continue to care for their teeth.
Our office in Mansfield makes us convenient to the entire surrounding region in Ohio, including Ashland, Shelby, Crestline, Galion, Ontario and more. Call 419.524.7409 with any questions or to schedule an appointment for any of our pediatric dentistry services today.
Teeth bleaching is a process that brightens the outer layers of your teeth to make them whiter and brighter. It can be done in our office in about an hour while you watch TV or listen to music, or it can be done at home using custom made trays.
Porcelain veneers are designed with thin layers of porcelain which are made to fit over the lip surface of your teeth to fill in gaps, brighten teeth, repair chips, or reshape the teeth. They are a very conservative way of changing your smile.
At Drs. Heringhaus General Dentistry, we offer a full range of treatments for missing teeth, including all varieties of dentures. We’ll work with you to find the ideal solution for you, offering you the highest quality of denture care and treatment.
Dentures are removable replacement teeth that can be made to look very natural. Great advancements have been made over the years in terms of how they appear, their longevity, and more. We offer complete dentures (if all the teeth in the arch are missing) or partial dentures (when some healthy teeth remain). In some cases implant dentures are the best option. These are dentures that are stabilized by also including dental implants for strength and retention.
Located in Mansfield, Ohio, Drs. Heringhaus proudly serves the entire surrounding region. Our clients come from Shelby, Ontario, Crestline, Galion, Ashland, and other nearby communities.
Call us today at 419.524.7409 and we’ll provide you with the information and assistance you need to get started with partial or complete dentures, so that you can once again proudly show off that beautiful smile.
Dental Crowns & Fillings
Porcelain Crowns or Bridges
Drs. Heringhaus offers our patients a number of different options to cover, repair or replace teeth that are broken, decayed or missing. Before you get started with dental crowns, bridges, or dental fillings, it’s helpful to know what all of these terms actually mean.
A porcelain tooth crown covers the tooth completely to strengthen it and improve its appearance. When a tooth is missing, a porcelain bridge can be used to fill the space, again strengthening the anchor teeth and improving the appearance and function of the area.
To repair a broken or decayed tooth, composite or tooth-colored dental fillings can be used. Using this material, the tooth can often be repaired more conservatively, while leaving the tooth with a much more natural appearance afterward.
We strive to provide our patients with the information they need to make the right decision while offering attentive care. Call us at 419.524.7409 today and we’ll answer any questions you may have regarding tooth fillings or dental crowns in Mansfield.
At Drs. Heringhaus General Dentistry, one of the many services we provide is teeth extractions. Our goal is to provide this treatment with as little stress on your end as possible, providing several treatment options to meet your needs.
Tooth extractions sometimes are required due to infection, accidents, lack of room (as is the case with a wisdom tooth extraction) or for orthodontic reasons. As with most of our procedures, this can be done with local anesthesia and nitrous oxide if you prefer.
Let our caring and attentive professionals provide you with the best possible treatment. With an office in Mansfield, OH, we’re conveniently located to work with individuals and families from the entire nearby region. Our patients hail from Crestline, Galion, Shelby, Lexington, Ontario, Lucas, and Ashland.
Due to tooth decay or dental trauma, you may be in need of a root canal. At Drs. Heringhaus General Dentistry, this is one of the many services we provide to our patients in and around Mansfield, Ohio. Here, you’ll learn more about the procedure itself and what it entails.
If the nerve of the tooth dies or becomes infected due to tooth decay or fracture, root canal therapy can sometimes be done to the tooth to repair it. The basic overview of the procedure is that the damaged part of the tooth is cleaned out and replaced with a sealing material and then rebuilt with a filling or crown. You can see a more detailed, step by step description of root canals in the graphic on this page.
Call our Mansfield, Ohio office at 419.524.7409 to learn more about how we can help with root canals and related services. We’re conveniently located to serve the entire surrounding region, including Shelby, Ontario, Crestline, Lexington, Lucas, Ashland, and Galion.
When a tooth cannot be repaired and is lost, an implant can be used to replace it. Teeth implants are made of titanium and replace the root of the tooth. A porcelain crown can then be placed on top of the implant for function as a new tooth. In other cases, a denture can be placed on top of multiple implants to replace numerous missing teeth.
We make it a priority to work with you directly to ensure that you understand your options and find the best possible course of action based upon your needs and preferences.
