If you have a dental infection, root canal therapy can save your tooth from extraction. Treatment involves removing the infected tissue and sterilizing the tooth, before restoring it with a dental crown. Recent innovations in technology and techniques have made root canal therapy virtually painless.
Gum disease is a progressive condition that can lead to gum recession, bone degeneration, and tooth loss if left untreated. To address gum disease, we use dental lasers, which can eliminate compromised tissue precisely and efficiently. We can also design a long-term plan to keep your gums healthy.
An imbalanced bite can result in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, as the joints must overcompensate. This constant strain on TMJs can cause pain or tenderness, as well as headaches. We can help pinpoint the cause of your condition and design a plan that will provide the relief you need.
Does your spouse or partner complain about your snoring? We provide customized oral appliances that can reduce snoring and ease your breathing. By properly positioning your jaw while you sleep, these devices can also help you sleep more deeply and comfortably.
The regular cleanings and dental exams we provide are anything but routine. We spend a great deal of time examining and educating patients and tailoring our cleanings to individual needs. It is our goal to help you achieve long-term oral health and a beautiful, vibrant smile.
As a patient-oriented practice, we take special care or those who are especially anxious about visiting the dentist. We will listen to your concerns or fears and take the steps necessary to help you feel comfortable. We even have special virtual reality glasses you can wear during treatment.
Some patients need a little extra help relaxing during treatment. For these patients, we offer sedation dentistry, including oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide. Anxiety should never stand between you and the treatment you need, and we will do everything we can to put your mind at ease.
Dr. Rink offers comprehensive services to patients of all ages. You may schedule your family's appointments back-to-back, and our team can handle all of your insurance and billing needs. To protect your health, Dr. Rink can monitor dental issues that run in your family and plan ahead.
If you are plagued by a consistent or severe toothache, you may need to have a tooth extracted. Dr. Rink removes teeth that are unable to be repaired by more conservative restorative measures. While he does not remove wisdom teeth himself, Dr. Rink can refer you to a specialist if necessary.
Dr. Rink performs an oral cancer screening during every check-up to help ensure all cases are caught as early as possible. If, during this examination, he finds potentially cancerous lesions, he will recommend you to a specialist who can perform a biopsy and recommend treatment.
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!
