Diagnostic & Preventive Dentistry
“Dental prophylaxis” is a cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans your teeth to get rid of plaque build-up that regular brushing and flossing can’t reach. Even the most diligent home oral health regime needs the help of regular professional dental cleaning to keep your teeth free of decay and stop the progression of gum disease.

What is Plaque?

Only professional cleanings can remove plaque, a sticky invisible film that contains millions of bacteria. This growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva produce toxins that inflame the gums and promote tooth decay. Gum inflammation or “gingivitis” is the start of periodontal disease. If left untreated, it can develop into a more serious condition called periodontitis. As well, when plaque is left to build up, it hardens turning into tartar. Tartar sticks to your teeth allowing decay to set in which leads to cavities.

What is Tartar?

Tartar and calculus form above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special cleanings called scaling. We use special dental instruments designed to gently remove tartar build-up before it can cause serious gum, teeth and bone problems.

How Often Should You Get a Dental Cleaning?

Most of our patients require a professional dental cleaning twice a year as part of their preventative care. However, if you have signs of gum disease, we recommend you have cleanings every three to four months to help avoid progression that can lead to serious complications — including tooth loss. Once periodontitis sets in, it cannot be completely reversed. However, with an effective cleaning plan, we can help put a stop to the damaging effects of gum disease and end its progression. Benefits of Cleanings

Your Cleaning Appointments

At your cleaning, you will receive scaling to remove plaque and tartar, and your teeth will be polished to remove stains that cannot be removed with regular brushing. Dr. Julie will also perform a comprehensive exam including:
  • Disease Screening: Your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, and gums will be checked for any signs of abnormal conditions, including cancer.
  • Periodontal Evaluation: Your doctor will look for bleeding, swelling, redness of the gums, and bad breath to ensure your periodontal health.
  • Examination of The Teeth: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay, as well as the condition of any restorative work, like fillings and crowns. X-rays will also be taken to look for signs of further issues. Changes are recorded, and your treatment plan will be updated as required.
Regular cleanings are a must for healthy, brighter smiles and to maintain optimum oral health for life. To book your next cleaning, contact Milltown Dental today.

Dr. Julie is the most confident, knowledgeable and passionate dentist I have ever met! My daughter was diagnosed with a mild tongue tie the day she was born and at a few weeks old, I started searching endlessly on where to have her release done. As a worried mom, I wanted the best of the best treatment and thankfully, I was recommended to Dr.Julie. Let me tell you…Dr.Julie IS the definition of BEST of the BEST!! The moment I met her in person, I knew my 5 week old was in good hands. This is the EXACT person you want doing a tongue tie procedure. All the staff are incredibly kind, professional and genuine. The clinic is very clean and organized. For each appointment, I was greeted immediately and was brought in right away. You will initially watch a detailed informative video and then will meet with the dentist outlining the procedure. She did not pressure us what so ever. The actual laser treatment happens quick, yes your baby will cry (it’s normal) and finally you will be taught the daunting yet IMPORTANT stretches. Make sure to NOT skip them. Thank you Dr. Boudreault for showing me how to do them a million times and not once were you bothered. God bless you all. Best Regards, Baby Rose’s mom

Took my 2 month old for a lip and tongue tie. Dr. Julie was extremely knowledgeable, things I didn’t even know was part of a tie. I was so anxious going into the appointment that after watching the video and talking to Dr. Julie, I knew I had made the right decision in coming to this office. I also didn’t feel pressured at all, which also made me feel better about the decision. Everyone was very friendly and the office is very clean. Thank you Milltown Dental!! I Will definitely recommend to friends and family!!

If I could give more than 5 starts I would. Not only is Dr. Julie incredibly skilled but she is the kindest most ethical and empathetic dentist I have come across. She has a top-notch informative consultation process for those looking to explore tongue/lip ties for their babies. The office itself is a clean comfortable environment, staff are efficient and very friendly.

Really fantastic experience here. Staff and dental professionals seem to genuinely care. It didn’t feel like they were just trying to sell me treatments. The hygienist I had was very professional and kind. The dentist was very personable and took the time to explain things to me. Would strongly recommend this office to anyone looking for a great dentist experience. UPDATE: I got invisilines here and the experience has been awesome. They explain everything in plain language and make it easy to understand the process. I was so impressed with how pleasant they made the treatment. Again, really great dentist practice. Strongly recommend.
