With years of experience and a commitment to continuing education, Dr. Sandra Pojtek provides top-tier dental care for those in our community, and is equipped to treat a number of oral health issues.

Children’s Dentistry

Did you know that the American Dental Association recommends bringing your child to the dentist around the age of one, or by the time the first tooth erupts? Dental problems, such as tooth decay, often begin at a young age. Detection and early intervention through children’s dentistry is key when it comes to preventing these issues.

If you live in or around Riverview, FL and need a family dentist, we invite you to visit Everhart Dental. Schedule a consultation by calling (813) 630-4079.

In addition to pediatric dental exams and cleanings, we also offer other preventative services, such as dental sealants and topical fluoride treatments. If cavities have already formed, Dr. Pojtek can perform restorative procedures to help preserve primary teeth until the permanent ones erupt. Furthermore, our compassionate team can help your child foster healthy oral hygiene habits for a lifetime of wellness.

Dentistry for Teens

As children enter adolescence, it’s important to encourage healthy habits. Hormone surges during puberty can lead to gum inflammation and gingivitis. Additionally, in many cases, teens are not as attentive to their oral health needs as they should be. Therefore, regular dental visits are imperative for achieving and maintaining healthy teeth and gums. We can demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques so your teen can keep his or her teeth healthy between appointments.

Dentistry for Adults

Whether you require small cavity repair or multiple teeth replacement, our team is equipped to serve your needs. Oral bacteria feed on plaque that accumulates on the teeth. If these plaque deposits are not removed routinely, bacteria can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease. To combat these issues, we recommend regular dental exams and cleanings. Most adult patients can maintain oral health with six-month visits. However, those who are predisposed to certain issues, such as decay or infection, may require more frequent appointments.

In addition to preventing and repairing oral health issues, we can also enhance the aesthetics of your smile with cosmetic treatments. Our goal is to help adults achieve healthy, functional, beautiful smiles that can last for years to come.

Orthodontic Screenings

A straight smile is about much more than appearance. While it’s true that orthodontic treatment can enhance the beauty of your smile, it also helps improve function and overall oral health. When the teeth are in proper alignment, it equalizes forces across the bite and balances the jaw joints, paving the way for a lifetime of dental benefits.

Braces aren’t just for kids and teens anymore. In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists report that about 20 percent of all orthodontic patients are older than 18.

At Everhart Dental, we perform orthodontic screenings for patients of all ages. If Dr. Pojtek believes that this type of treatment will be beneficial for you, we can refer you to an orthodontic specialist.
