Rink can help you understand the extraordinary benefits of dental implants at his Charleston, SC, practice. A few of these benefits include increased comfort, a stronger jaw bone, and the freedom to eat and speak with confidence.

Placing and restoring a dental implant is usually divided into two separate appointments. During your first visit, we will place a titanium post into your jaw bone. This post functions as an artificial tooth root and will fuse to the bone over a period of several months. During your second visit, and once the implant has sufficiently integrated, your permanent restoration will be placed. Depending on your treatment goals, you may have a number of different restorations placed, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Although he does not perform placement surgery, Dr. Rink specializes in lifelike restorations that help make your smile look natural.
