Matt Oswin struck early in the second half to give the hosts hope.
A superb Eady challenge denied Wisbech top scorer Liam Nimmo a chance before Ben Nower left the field for treatment after bravely denying Darren Jimson in the 70th minute.
The patched-up keeper then pulled off a stunning one-handed save to thwart Stuart Cobb but was beaten by a Luke Kennedy penalty five minutes from time.
But Mildenhall kept possession well in the closing stages to see out the win.
