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.

"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
