What is the treatment process like?
You will begin by meeting with Dr. Rink for a personal consultation at his Charleston, SC offices. During this appointment, he will discuss your concerns and goals, and then perform a thorough examination. This may include various x-rays and other imaging scans to evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Then he will make his recommendations regarding the specific procedure combinations from which you could most benefit.
Once you have approved your treatment plan, Dr. Rink can begin planning your procedures, which will likely take place in stages and require multiple appointments. He can then review an estimated timeline with you and schedule your first procedure. Treatment timelines vary significantly from patient to patient, depending on the procedures included. To enhance patient comfort during lengthy procedures, Dr. Rink offers sedation options.
