Success Stories

Many people who experience unexplained headaches, earaches, neck pain, jaw pain, vertigo or shoulder/arm pain do not realize that these symptoms are due to the inflammation in their JAW JOINT resulting in Temporomandibular Joint Disorders.


I’ve had jaw issues since I was very young. My parents didn’t really know what caused it and it never caused pain so I just lived with it for a while. It wasn’t until I started dating my fiance, who would no longer sit beside me at the dinner table because of the popping, that I decided to seek out information about the popping. My dentist recommended Dr. Urbanek because he knew exactly what was wrong when I told him about my popping. Dr. Urbanek has easily become my favorite doctor to come to. He described all of my issues in simple terms that I could understand and took the time to listen to my concerns. I have been wearing my mouthpiece for almost 3 months, 24/7. I can say my jaw no longer pops on the right side and has slowed down on the left side.” M.G.

I had developed many symptoms and was in a lot of pain and could barely open my mouth. It .only a few short months most of my symptoms had improved. No pain and could open my mouth. I hope to continue to improve.” D.F


“What a Relief!! I was having so much pain with my TMJ that i consulted my dentist with needing a new mouth appliance . He recommended me to a Dr. Urbanek . He ask me all these questions & of course i had all the symptoms . It started about 35 years . I got hit in the jaw with a softball . I got married right before i turned 20 so it was in the first years of marriage that my jaws started locking when i would yawn . I got my first mouth piece & wore it day and night for about a year . I had it for about 3 or 4 years until i wore holes in it. I finally got another one . Had to keep getting it fixed . Finally it just didn’t fit right anymore . I went with out one for so long that i didn’t realize it was harming me more and more everyday. Headaches all the time, neck & shoulder pain . My jaws were getting so wore out that they were starting to lock up again and my ear started hurting . When the other ear started ringing ,popping & i got where i couldn’t hear good I had to do something !! I came & seen Dr.U got fitted for a different mouth piece. I have wore it for 3 weeks day and night and LET ME TELL YOU I AM FEELING like my old self again !! If you are having any problems please give him a call !!” Kim Davis


“No more headaches!! For many years I went to multiple doctors and was misdiagnosed for my headaches, ear ringing, and dizziness. Finally my primary doctor referred me to Dr. Urbanek. After that it was history. He turned my whole life around by giving me the splint. I was able to function on a daily basis without having all of my symptoms. If you have the same symptoms then I would recommend him to anyone. The splint will change your life.” Yolanda 

 “I first was told I had TMJ when I went to the doctor thinking I had an ear infection. It felt like a very severe ear infection deep down in my ear. My doctor took a look in my ear and told me that nothing was wrong. A few months later, I returned with the same symptoms. Again, she looked in my ear and said that nothing was wrong. Then she suggested that I may have TMJ. I spoke to my dentist about it. My dentist looked at my x-ray, and suggested that the problem was probably my wisdom teeth. I got my wisdom teeth removed and found that afterwards the pain in my jaw did not stop and was amplified. I told my dentist about it again, and he sent me here. I came in, and answered his questions and was diagnosed with TMJ. There would be weeks and even months where I could not turn my head a certain direction, and I thought it was just stress and tension. I thought that I just got migraines. After I started wearing the splint (as annoying as it may have been at first) my symptoms began to go away. Now I do not live off of Motrin and Bengay.” A.G
 “I have loved being a patient of Dr. Urbanek. He has helped my headaches so much. I have suffered from headaches, ear pain, and jaw pain for 2-3 years. After a visit with an ENT i was referred to Dr. Urbanek. He immediately knew what the problem was. He made this special device that i wear daily and it has improved my symptoms 96%. I am very impressed with my results and the care i have been given.” Callie W.

 Patient Review For Urbanek
 “I am thrilled to finally have relief from my TMJ! My experience with Dr. Urbanek and his staff has been wonderful. Everyone is so friendly and willing to offer help and a listening ear! I had suffered with TMJ for more than 15 years. The worst part was that I had never been told that all of my ear trouble was directly related to the TMJ. I went through 3 sets of tubes in my ears and treated for an average of 4 ear infections per year. All along it was my jaw causing my ear troubles! Dr. Urbanek took the time necessary to explain the causes and treatment process to me. I received my splint in a couple of weeks and noticed tremendous relief of my symptoms almost immediately. Today I estimate that I am 98% symptom free!!! Thank you Dr. Urbanek and staff!”
 Patient Review For Urbanek
  “I have had headaches for nearly my entire life and at a young age I began to grind my teeth and lock my jaw. I always just took over-the-counter meds for the pain and discomfort. Finally at the age of 24, I decided to see a specialist after talking with my dentist and I am so pleased to have found Dr. Urbanek. Honestly, I was skeptical at first thinking that there’s no way this will help and 4 months later I don’t go a night without my retainer. I hardly have any headaches anymore and dont wake up in pain from grinding. If you have any symptoms of TMJ, Lock Jaw, headaches, or grinding I would suggest at the VERY least coming in for a consultation! Best decision I’ve made for my overall health”
 Patient Review For Urbanek
 “It’s never too late to get the device! I wore braces for a while which helped temporarily. The main symptom I had was the tightness in my facial muscles which I thought I could control by taking muscle relaxers. Those are awful and I could not function while taking them. I had terrible headaches which I thought was a sinus problem. While at a doctor’s office I saw a pamphlet about TMJ and the symptoms it can cause. I realized that I had TMJ and left the doctor’s office. I went online to search for a TMJ doctor and came across Dr. Urbanek. He made one of his devices and after wearing it for only 3 weeks I can tell a huge difference. He told me that he would allow me to sing again in the choir. Thanks to his device I am now singing again and my headaches are gone. The device has changed my life. Thank you”

 “I can’t believe how much better I feel after just a few months! Dr, Urbanek took the time to explain to me what was happening to cause my jaw pain and told me that I would feel a huge difference within a few weeks. The popping in my jaw has almost completely stopped and the pain is almost non-existent. The TMJ splint is definitely worth every penny I spent”

 ” No more jaw pain. I was having clicking in jaw and lots of pain when jaw would lock. Had difficulty eating due to jaw pain. Googled jaw pain and Dr. Urbanek’s website came up. Listened to tutorials about TMJ and emailed to schedule appointment. After 3 weeks pain was less after 9 weeks pain was gone!” S.P.

“Before meeting Dr. Urbanek I’d suffered jaw pain and locking for years. In just the first 3 weeks I haven’t felt any jaw pain at all. The headaches, dizziness, and other symptoms have all but disappeared as well. It’s night and day from before receiving my device. I can’t thank Dr. Urbanek and his great team enough!” Katherine

 Penny review
 “I was having severe jaw pain in jaw popping and was referred to Dr. Urbanek by another Doctor because I was clueless on what to do or where to go. I was told I needed to see a TMJ specialist and I asked my Doctor to send me to the best he knew, and he was a 100% correct, Dr Urbanek and his staff are the best.

I went from 0 to 100% with Dr. Urbanek’s mouthpiece which had made to fit my mouth and my needs. By listening and doing everything he told me to do, it was well worth it. Now I don’t have to feel pain anymore. The mouthpiece looks and feels a lot like my own top denture and it didn’t take long to where I got comfortable wearing it. I can’t thank Dr. Urbanek and his staff enough for everything they have done for me! So again thank you all.” -Penny

 Bethanny Review
 After many years of jaw pain, I began to experience severe ear pain. After visiting my local dr, I was referred to Dr. Urbanek. Dr Urbanek quickly diagnosed me with TMJ and had me fitted with my medical device. After 3 months of wearing the device most of the pain had diminished only to return. Dr Urbanek feared that I might need surgery but after several months of routine care, I am happy to report that I am symptom free. No ear pain, no jaw pain, and no headaches. Thank you for allowing me to live pain free!”” -Bethanny
