The Cleaning Process

Professional cleaning at Gardena Family Dentistry involves a detailed process to thoroughly remove plaque and tartar. The procedure begins with scaling, utilizing specialized tools to meticulously clean above and below the gumline. Following scaling, teeth are polished to remove surface stains and smooth the enamel, reducing future plaque buildup. The session often concludes with flossing and a fluoride treatment to fortify the teeth against decay.
