Dental Services in Norman
General, Restorative, & Cosmetic Dentistry Services
General Dental Care
We'll reserve about an hour for your first visit. When you arrive, a member of our team will review your paperwork, chart your periodontal and dental health, and take your blood pressure. Then, one of our dental hygienists will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth. No matter how well you brush and floss your teeth at home, nothing matches the professional cleaning you’ll receive at the office. Our powerful rotating brush is capable of removing stains on the enamel surface of teeth, so your smile looks brighter. In addition, the hygienist will use a special hand tool to remove spots of tartar that may not only yellow your smile, but could eventually lead to gum disease.
Also at your checkup, Dr. Carmen will perform a comprehensive exam. He'll review your medical history and discuss any past or present concerns that you may have. During the exam, he'll look at your head and neck and check your occlusion and jaw joints for signs of misalignment or TMJ disorder. Dr. Carmen will also thoroughly examine your existing dental work and assess the condition of your gums. Finally, he'll present a course of action to resolve the underlying causes of any dental maladies and restore your oral health for the long term.

Restorative Dental Care
In addition to examining your teeth, Dr. Carmen will also carefully consider what your annual digital x-rays show in order to know what kind of restorative care is needed. For instance, a small cavity can be repaired with a tooth-colored filling made of composite resin material. If the x-ray shows that you have a tooth with a penetrating crack, then a CEREC one visit dental crown will support the structure and prevent the tooth from splitting. A tooth with infection will need root canal therapy to preserve it and help you avoid extraction.
If you do need to have a tooth extracted, or if you have a missing tooth for any other reason, then Norman restorative dentist Dr. Carmen offers a number of tooth replacement options such as:
· Fixed Bridges
· Full and Partial Dentures
· Dental Implants

Dedication to Quality Dentistry
Your teeth are invaluable assets, and we promise not to cut corners when it comes to caring for your smile. We use high-quality materials and advanced technology, because you deserve the best that dentistry has to offer. CEREC all-porcelain crowns and tooth-colored fillings are durable, esthetic alternatives to amalgam/metal restorations that are safer for our patients and the environment. With modern tools like air abrasion, Dr. Carmen delivers maximum comfort— even during routine procedures.

His intensive postgraduate studies include occlusion, cosmetic dentistry, dental implant placement, sedation dentistry, and more.
