This philosophy on care is what has built trust with our Menlo Park patients for decades. Contact us today if you would like to schedule an appointment.
Unparalleled Attention to Detail
When you first visit our welcoming office, we ensure to convey we are readily available to help. We start by asking about any dental concerns you would like us to address. If immediate attention isn’t necessary, we spend time getting an idea of what you know about dentistry. Our goal in providing you comprehensive care is to educate you about the benefits of treatment and how those can contribute to a long-lasting and healthy smile.
The new patient exam entails taking digital images and conducting a comprehensive exam. Dr. Durando takes the time to understand your goals for treatment. He then provides a detailed presentation of how our office will treat your oral health complications. We believe an informed patient will not only have the tools to maintain good hygiene but can utilize this information to better understand future oral health developments.
Renewing Health, Function, and Aesthetics
After a thorough exploration of your dental health, our doctor discusses our findings with you. We don’t just locate the issue, we try to pinpoint the reason why the pain exists, working with patients to develop a co-generated treatment plan that will completely rehabilitate your smile.
For those with minor cavities, we eliminate the decay and fill the tooth with composite resin. This material offers a discreet and aesthetically appealing solution, as the filling material blends in seamlessly with the tooth. If the decay is more significant, we recommend root canal therapy to restore the integrity of the natural tooth.
We also offer relief to those with larger dental concerns. We make every effort to preserve the tooth, but if decay is left untreated, an extraction may be necessary. Dr. Durando has the training an expertise to remove the affected tooth right in our office. We provide patients with an array of traditional and implant-supported prosthetics to replace the lost tooth.
Protecting Your Periodontal Health
Our practice places equal importance on maintaining proper gum health as well. When we recognize signs of gingivitis during your exam, we may recommend a deep cleaning, also referred to as a scaling and root planing procedure. In addition to restoring your periodontal health, we offer cosmetic enhancements such as gum grafting to create a more uniform appearance.
