  • Exams: Regular dental exams can help you identify problems before they become serious. Our dental exams include x-rays, screenings for gum disease and oral cancer, examination of tooth decay, and evaluation of existing dental conditions and devices.
  • X-rays: Offered as part of our comprehensive exam package, we provide X-rays of your teeth and mouth, for a professional diagnosis. X-rays are a crucial part of preventive dental care and can reveal everything from tooth decay to potential signs cancer. At Millidge Place, we’re happy to offer this service during routine dental exams.
  • Cleanings: Our in-depth cleanings are designed to give your dental health a boost. We remove tartar and plaque while also polishing your teeth. This leaves your smile looking new and bright while preventing decay and plaque that can lead to serious dental and general health conditions when not removed. 

Patient Education: You know that you should brush and floss each day, but do you know how to brush and floss most effectively? If you have dental devices or interventions, do you know how to care for them daily? Surprisingly, many people don’t know how to properly care for their teeth at home, increasing their chances of tooth decay and other dental problems. At Millidge Place, we want to ensure that you have the best possible dental health, so we apply all the latest research when educating you on how to best care for your teeth.
