TMJ Fort Mill, SC
gold hill family & cosmetic dentistry

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (commonly referred to as TMJ) involves pain in the jaw muscles, frequent headaches, a popping or clicking sound when biting, and discomfort in the face, head, and neck. The pain and discomfort caused by TMJ can be very severe for some people, it can come and go or remain constant, and it may last for many years. For those with intermittent symptoms of TMJ, symptoms may recur during stressful times. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we specialize in effective TMJ therapy to help patients find relief from their temporomandibular joint pain. Our focus is on the long-term well being of the mouth and teeth, so we do not just mask the symptoms that our patients feel.

Myofacial pain is the most common symptom of TMJ. This pain is related to the muscles that control the movement of the jaw. Because the jaw is used constantly from day to day, when a problem exists with the jaw muscles, pain can become debilitating. The temporomandibular joint slides and rotates in front of the ear on either side of the face. Four different chewing muscles are paired on each side that connect the lower jaw to the skull. Because of the location of this joint and the frequency of use, pain may be experienced at any time of the day or night. Many times a misalignment of the teeth and jaws may be the cause of the problem. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we are able to successfully diagnose the cause of TMJ so that we can effectively treat this condition.

If you are looking for a dentist who can treat your TMJ effectively, Gold Hill Dentistry can help you. Our practice offers exceptional patient care the moment you enter our office, and we are equipped to keep you relaxed and comfortable during your entire visit. TMJ can worsen over time and cause more severe complications, so if you are suffering from TMJ, call Gold Hill Dentistry today to set up the next available appointment to begin your treatment.

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 highly recommend this dental practice. The staff are gracious, helpful, courteous and accommodating. Dr. Sagunarthy is a wonderful dentist.

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.
