Relief From Your TMJ Discomfort Fort Mill, SC

TMJ discomfort is the pain associated with Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome. The Temporomandibular Joint (commonly referred to as TMJ) is the joint where the mandible (the lower jawbone) meets the skull. If you put your fingers directly in front of your ears on the side of your face and open and close your mouth you can feel this joint in motion. Issues associated with TMJ Syndrome are frequent morning headaches, tightness in your jaw, jaw pain or discomfort, facial and/or ear pain, and a clicking sound while eating. At Gold Hill Family & Cosmetic Dentistry we offer our patients effective, long-term relief from TMJ discomfort through an extensive examination in order to diagnose the underlying causes.

Many people experience ebbs and flows in their TMJ symptoms, yet in most cases it continually gets worse over time. TMJ syndrome is most often caused by a misaligned bite. Misalignment in the upper and lower jaws can put undo stress on a portion of the jaw so that it is being overworked or over stressed. Many people who experience a clicking sound on one side of their mouth while eating will simply chew their food on the other side. This one act of compensation puts added burden on one half of your mouth because food should be chewed evenly. The jaw is used frequently throughout aside from eating: talking, laughing, yawning, opening the mouth for tooth brushing and flossing, etc. Because of this frequency of use, jaw pain can be felt any time during the day or night for TMJ sufferers.

At Gold Hill Dentistry, we are here to treat your TMJ syndrome successfully so that you find relief from your discomfort. Our practice is dedicated to helping you achieve ultimate oral health – and that goes well beyond just having clean teeth. Because TMJ worsens over time, the sooner you begin treatment for this condition the better. Call our dental practice today to schedule an appointment and be on the road to finding relief.

The staff at Gold Hill Dentistry is wonderful. They are polite, professional and helpful I have a history of working as both a dental assistant and hygienist in another state. I’m extremely particular when it comes to my dental care. My daughter recommended Gold Hill. I am very pleased with my dental care. I highly recommend the practice.

I highly recommend this dental practice. The staff are gracious, helpful, courteous and accommodating. Dr. Sagunarthy is a wonderful dentist. This is from someone who has always suffered with dental and gum issues. He is current on dental information, kind, gentle and professional! I am so happy to have found this practice!

Richard DeCristo

Dr. Sagunarthy is one of if not the best dentist I ever went to. He recently replaced a crown that was botched by another dentist and the procedure was done perfectly and painlessly. I first went to Gold Hill Dentistry for a second opinion on four crowns and maybe a root canal I needed asap from another dentist in Fort Mill. As it turned out I needed the crown replacement and only one other at a later date. That’s about $6000.00 I saved leaving this OTHER FORT MILL DENTIST. In addition to this wonderful dentist, the total staff is outstanding.

Midge Zimmerman

I have dental anxiety. I dreaded locating a dentist after recently moving to the area. I had gone to another dentist in the area but quickly changed to Gold Hill Denistry. Dr. Sagarnathy and staff are always kind, gentle and concerned with my well being. They also do a really good dental work. Other than routine work, I have had an implant, and chipped tooth repaired, all are doing well.
