Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, Recessed Jaw and Breathing Problems Success Story

BillBill Matseas suffered from pain and soreness in his TMJ, or Temporomandibular Joint, had a recessed jaw, and suffered from breathing problems. That is, until he sought treatment from Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. Anthony Urbanek, a Board Certified specialist with more than 30 years of experience treating TMJ problems and Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD).

Matseas underwent surgery and is now breathing easy, without pain, thanks to Dr. Urbanek. “He explained the surgery thoroughly,” says Matseas. “He’s meticulous.”

“I would not trust anyone else in the world to do this other than Dr. Urbanek.  He’s a master at what he does,” adds Matseas.

Dr. Urbanek has performed approximately 2,000 surgeries throughout his career. Temporomandibular Joint problems, which are disorders related to your complex jaw joint, develop for a variety of reasons, and not every person suffering from TMJ requires surgery. Early detection, however, is important because some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions.

Matseas says he felt comfortable throughout the surgery process, and in post-op. “Dr. Urbanek’s got a good office staff — very friendly and welcoming. It’s almost not like going to a doctor’s office,” he notes.

Matseas says he’s not only is he feeling better physically, but also that his “Greek profile” as he calls it, has really improved. “I’m complimented all the time on it,” he says happily.

Unable to chew after his surgery, Matseas enjoyed Dr. Urbanek’s smoothie recipe, and even improved upon it, recalling with a chuckle, “They were so good, I couldn’t stop drinking them.”

Matseas says he was very pleased with the results from his surgery. “Dr. Urbanek is the only person I would see for anything regarding my jaw. He’s in a league by himself.”
