Restorative Dentistry

For patients in Charleston, Hilton Head, and Myrtle Beach with damaged teeth or painful jaw problems, Dr. John Rink uses restorative dentistry to restore the function and health of their smile.

With dentures, porcelain or composite fillings, dental implants, and more, Dr. Rink can fill in gaps left by missing teeth, repair decay, and prevent painful shifting in the mouth. Patients suffering from disorders of the jaw can also receive TMJ treatment at our Charleston practice, and explore alternatives to surgical intervention.

For more information about TMJ treatment, restoration of dental implants, and other restorative dentistry solutions, contact Charleston dentist John Rink, DDS, AAACD. We offer sedation options, such as nitrous oxide, to keep patients comfortable throughout treatment.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are permanently anchored into the jawbone. They provide support for attractive, natural-looking replacement teeth. Implants can strengthen your bite by filling in gaps, and improve your ability to enunciate clearly as well as eat the foods you love.

Dental Implant Restoration

We can restore dental implants with custom-made crowns, bridges and dentures. Each of our restorations is designed with the utmost precision and care. We can also incorporate our advanced CEREC® system to provide qualifying patients with same-day restorations.

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are fixed to the surface of teeth, creating a strong bond that can safeguard you against future decay. As compared to amalgam fillings, these restorations are color-matched to blend seamlessly in your smile, and they do not change shape with temperature fluctuations.

Bridgework

If you have gaps in your smile and find it difficult to speak and chew, dental bridges may be the right option for you. Dental bridges are comprised of pontics nestled between two crowns. They can either be attached to adjacent healthy teeth or to dental implants for a more permanent solution.

Partial Dentures

It is important to replace missing teeth in a timely manner to prevent shifting and to reduce pain associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. We use partial or removable dentures to fill gaps left by missing teeth. Partial dentures consist of artificial teeth attached to a plastic base.

CEREC

The CEREC system enables us to fabricate and place dental restorations in a single appointment. We can take digital impressions of your smile, so you can avoid uncomfortable traditional impressions, and then craft high-quality ceramic restorations. This means less time spent in the dentist’s chair.

Same-Day Restorations

Using CEREC technology, we can create durable tooth-colored restorations in a single appointment. CEREC can be used to craft ceramic crowns, as well as inlays, onlays, or porcelain veneers to meet your unique needs. As a result, you can leave the office feeling comfortable and confident.

Porcelain Inlays and Onlays

Porcelain inlays and onlays can restore teeth that have sustained moderate damage. They are ideal for teeth that are too compromised for a filling but do not require a crown. An inlay covers the chewing surface of a molar, and an onlay extends over one or more cusps.

Snoring Treatment

Habitual snoring can be evidence of a more serious condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. This disorder is caused by an obstruction of the upper airway, often the result of excess tissue, large tonsils, or a large tongue. We offer oral appliances therapy to keep the airway open during sleep.

To Our Wonderful Family of Patients:

Last night, my wife Connie and I enjoyed the most delicious take-out dinner from FIG restaurant. As always, the food was excellent; however, it was most satisfying to see the local restaurant, along with others, begin its comeback. Our resilient city feels like it is coming back to life—parks are opening and folks and families are enjoying the wonderful spring Charleston air. The Rink dental team is, too, readying itself for the next chapter of practicing dentistry as the community begins reopening its doors.

We are concentrating on continuing to advance our rock-solid foundation of state-of-the-art infection control. We were blessed to keep our dedicated and passionate team employed during the crisis, and have devoted the entire month of April to research, systematically developing, purchasing and installing the best additional infection control protocols and equipment available. We are ready. This month we will begin the process of a “soft opening” of our practice. What this means for our patients is a resumption of the same excellent restorative, esthetic, and preventive care in the safest and most secure environment available anywhere.

Additional safety steps will include asking our patients to wait for their appointments in their cars rather than in the reception area. We will ask that you take a moment to fill out a short questionnaire upon your arrival regarding your health and recent travels. We will take everyone’s temperature (including the team) with a forehead scanner as you enter the practice. We will clean and disinfect all touchpoints in the office in between each patient. We have procured the highest quality KN95 masks and face shields for the staff and have carefully researched and purchased the most advanced aerosol containment and purification systems available for the safety of all our patients. These are a few examples of how we have added additional layers of protection for your and our staff’s benefit.

Finally, I wholly understand that each one of you is an individual with specific desires, needs, and comfort levels. I want you to know that we are here to actively listen to you and to create the best environment for your emotional health. Some will be ready sooner than others to receive care again at our office. Let’s keep the lines of communication open and please know that our relationship with you and your family is our highest priority.

We look forward to reuniting with everyone but until that time it is our wish that you enjoy good health, good spirits, and peace.

To your optimal dental health,

- John F. Rink, DDS, AAACD and team
