Frequently Asked Questions

Kid's dentistry | Hermitage, PA | Thomas Family DentistryBaby Teeth Play a Major Role in Adult Health

As a parent, it is not uncommon to assume that caries (cavities) on baby teeth are of no concern. Though understandable, this is something that is frequently misunderstood. Your child's baby teeth play a major role in the health and functionality of their adult dentition. 

There are a few reasons why we treat child caries. First and foremost, baby teeth are much smaller in size compared to an adult tooth, and the caries process can travel very quickly through the enamel into the inner structures of the tooth. If the decay reaches the most inner portion of a tooth, there is a risk of infection, which then conducts the need for a root canal and/or more extensive treatment. 

dentist for kids | Hermitage, PA | Thomas Family DentistryTreating Cavities Encourages Good Oral Health

We strongly encourage keeping baby teeth until their natural shedding time because these baby teeth hold the space needed for the adult teeth to erupt properly. Thus, having your child's cavity treated ensures its longevity until it is ready to shed. 

Sometimes, if the cavity is in its beginning stages, we can monitor them at each visit until they warrant treatment. If you think your child has a cavity, or he/she complains of a tooth hurting, schedule an appointment with us today to see what your child needs.



Children with extensive treatment needs or kids that are unable to cooperate due to a variety of reasons are usually referred to the Pedodontist. The Peds dentist specializes in dentistry for children and has “more tools in the box”  that are often necessary to properly treat some children.

Extensive treatment needs include:

  • Multiple caries (cavities) on multiple teeth
    • ​Pediatric dentists can treat numerous teeth in one visit to prevent traumatic experiences for your child
  • ​Teeth with very large cavities extending into the inner structures of the tooth
    • ​Peds dentists have specific "tools" and materials for children's teeth in these cases

​​Some children also have a hard time sitting still or are not yet comfortable enough with the dental environment, where they would have a smoother experience with a Pedodontist to meet their treatment needs.

If we feel that your child would benefit from seeing the Pedodontist, we will give you a list of referrals in the area and surrounding areas to see. However, if we feel that your child can readily undergo procedures in our office without added stress, we are more than happy to address their oral needs in-house!

Image of a tooth with a first aid kit | Hermitage, PA | Thomas Family DentistryAre you experiencing facial trauma, severe pain or swelling?

Facial trauma can cause damage to your tooth and/or the root of the tooth, ultimately affecting its lifespan. If you've been hit or experienced any facial trauma and have noticed a change/pain with a tooth, this warrants a dental emergency.

Severe pain or swelling can occur from various dental concerns as well. Dental infections, extensive decay or broken teeth are a few different situations that can cause these symptoms.
