For many patients who have experienced tooth loss, dental implant-supported restorations provide a superior solution. At his Charleston, SC, dental practice, Dr. John Rink helps patients experience the vast benefits of implant-supported dentures, including a restored ability to chew and speak, jawbone retention, and a virtually eliminated need for future adjustments in order to maintain a comfortable fit. Patient education is the key to any medical treatment, and Dr. Rink invites you to learn more about the many benefits of implant dentures.
In simplest terms, implant dentures are the only solution that provides a level of comfort, function, and appearance virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
With proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, dental implants can last a lifetime. You can rely on your dental implants to prevent the shrinkage of bone tissue that happens after a tooth has been lost, and this will help to ensure that your dentures will always fit comfortably. Meanwhile, traditional dentures cannot stop bone atrophy, and require frequent adjustments to accommodate changes in the shape of the jaw. These adjustments not only take considerable time out of your schedule, but also incur costs that add up over time.
Implant-supported dentures are anchored directly to the jawbone, meaning they will not shift out of place when you chew your food, speak, or smile. Traditional dentures, on the other hand, exhibit only a fraction of this stability, which can cause both physical discomfort and overwhelming feelings of self-consciousness.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is an inflammation of the jaw joints that often occurs when the upper and lower jaws do not meet comfortably. Missing teeth can disrupt the balance of your bite, and ill-fitting traditional dentures can also contribute to this problem. Implant-supported dentures are carefully crafted to ensure that your jaws meet properly, minimizing strain on the jaw joints.
Traditional dentures can be inconvenient, uncomfortable, and often a cause of embarrassment. Implant dentures allow you to stop worrying about an unstable bite, messy adhesives, and removing and replacing your restoration. Instead, this advanced solution allows you to start enjoying the meals you love, smiling with confidence, and speaking with absolute clarity.
Because your implant dentures are fastened into place, you do not have to remove them for cleaning. Instead, you can brush and floss normally. As with natural teeth, you will need to continue to visit your dentist for biannual checkups.
At the Charleston Center, our dental team has decades of experience in implant dentistry.

To Our Family of Patients,
After much thought and concern for the health of our patients and team, I would like to share with you my thoughts on how the Coronavirus outbreak in the United States can best be managed at our practice. The key issue is prevention. Social distancing is the best solution at this time to prevent the spread of the virus.
Therefore, in conjunction with the South Carolina Dental Association recommendations, I have decided to close our normal practice operation with the exception of emergency and urgent care situations, through the end of March, 2020. I will be available for you and your family for emergency and urgent needs. Please call my personal cell phone if you have any questions or if you need an office visit. I am here for you.
After we have weathered this storm, we will be here to see that you continue to have the excellent care that you and your families deserve. We thank you for the trust that you place in our practice. We look forward to a long and healthy relationship in the future.
My cell phone number: 843-224-0517
To Your Good Oral and Systemic Health!
- Dr. John F. Rink, DDS, AAACDVirtual Consultation
