Tooth Pain Relief

When you have tooth or jaw pain, it can be difficult to concentrate on anything besides the discomfort. Oral pain is distracting, but it is also a sign that something is wrong. Any type of tooth or jaw pain should never be ignored. Our team at Gold Hill Dentistry can identify what is causing your pain and find a treatment option to get you relief.

If a tooth hurts, there is always a reason. The nerves of a tooth are deep inside the root canals and are not easily affected. Most tooth pain is due to some type of pressure or irritation of the nerves, which can be caused by decay, infection, abscesses or damage to the tooth.

To find the problem, a thorough exam is necessary. Our Doctors can perform an inspection of the teeth and gums, as well as review x-rays for any potential problems. Once the source of the tooth pain is identified, he will suggest a treatment plan to give you relief. Many times, the treatment can be performed the same day, such as repairing a cracked or broken tooth or removing and filling a cavity. If more extensive treatment is needed like a root canal, our doctors will make sure you are given top priority to have the procedure completed and help with options to manage discomfort.

Treatment for Jaw Pain

When your jaw hurts, it is important to find the source. For some, it can be a symptom of TMJ, a jaw joint disorder. For others, it could be bruxism or teeth grinding that is putting too much pressure on the jaw. Misalignments of the teeth and bite can also be the cause of jaw pain. To find the cause and get treatment for relief, a comprehensive exam needs to be performed to identify what is creating stress on the jaw. Once the cause is found, our doctors can recommend a treatment plan for relief.

You should never need to live with tooth or jaw pain. If you are in oral discomfort, contact our office in Fort Mill. We have emergency dental appointments for patients with severe pain and we will help find the source of your discomfort and give you relief with treatment for your oral health problem.

"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."
