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.
