Carolina Family Dentistry
We love Carolina Family Dentistry! My entire family and I have been seeing Dr. Vargas for over 5 years. My three children all have experienced their first dentists appointments there and all love going to the dentist. The staff makes them feel comfortable and special! The office staff is very courteous and makes scheduling appointments easy. They are great about reminding and confirming your appointments. They handle all of the insurance paperwork and billing. I have been leery of other dentists office because I felt like they were out to sell unnecessary treatments or work. I don't feel that way at Carolina Family dentistry. Dr. Vargas is very thorough and always listens and takes the time to answer questions. The wait times are usually very minimal. We recommend them to all of our family and friends!

There is nothing I don't like about this practice. Dr. Hourihan is terrific, patient and the staff are absolutely wonderful! I have always had a terror of dentists, since childhood, when a dentist slapped me, and I let my teeth go for decades. I finally got the nerve up to go and everyone here has made me so at ease. I now do not fear going to the dentist! It's a miracle!

they are fast and know what their doing. great prices too.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
