Chicago Dental Cleanings & Examinations

Twice a Year is All It Takes!

Dr. Harvey Mahler Chicago general dentist


Dr. Mahler has provided top-quality dental care to his Chicago-area patients for over 30 years! He’s an expert in cosmetic, preventive, and restorative dental care as well as TMJ treatments and invisible orthodontics. You’ll love the care you receive thanks to our use of cutting-edge dental technologies.

When it comes to maintaining outstanding dental health, brushing and flossing are only part of the equation. While great home care habits are important, regular dental cleanings and examinations are essential to help keep your teeth clean and free of cavities and infections.

How Our Dental Cleanings Work

  1. We apply a topical numbing gel to make the cleaning more comfortable
  2. We use a “sonic” scaler which quickly and efficiently powers off stain & calculus
  3. We use very warm water which is more gentle and less painful during the cleaning
  4. We polish your teeth with a fluoridated polishing paste and can use a “jet” polisher for heavy tobacco and coffee stains if necessary

What To Expect From Your Exam

  1. Oral Cancer screening and examination
  2. Complete Periodontal (gum) screening
  3. Dental examination (teeth cavity check)
  4. TMJ (Jaw joint) screening
