TMJ Disorders

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have had symptoms like pain or a “clicking” sound, you’ll be glad to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Since some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions, early detection and treatment are important.

Trouble with Your Jaw? TMJ disorders develop for many reasons. You might clench or grind your teeth, tightening your jaw muscles and stressing your Temporomandibular joint. Or, you may have a damaged jaw joint due to injury or disease. Whatever the cause, the results may include a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or trouble opening your mouth wide.

Treatment

There are various treatment options that Dr. Urbanek can utilize to improve the harmony and function of your jaw. Once an evaluation confirms a diagnosis of TMJ disorder, Dr. Urbanek will determine the proper course of treatment. It is important to note that treatment always works best with a team approach of self-care as well as professional care.

DID YOU KNOW that nearly 50% of all women suffer with unexplained headaches, migraines, earaches, neck pain, jaw pain, vertigo or shoulder/arm pain?

Most people do not realize that these symptoms are due to the inflammation in their JAW JOINT.

Dr. Urbanek’s TMJ Splint is a small acrylic piece that fits comfortably in the mouth and is uniquely designed to relieve the jaw joint of the inflammation. It’s more than just a dental splint or mouth guard… it’s a life changer!

Dr. Tony Urbanek, inventor of the patent pending, drug-free, non-surgical, permanent solution to jaw joint problems, arrived at this treatment after performing thousands of surgeries and realizing the relief was often only temporary. He went above and beyond the typical dental mouth guard or splint. The result: To-date over 1,000 patients have been treated with this pioneering new method with over 90% success.

I never knew I could feel so good! I have had jaw, ear and neck pain for years. Headaches were an everyday occurrence. Since wearing this mouthpiece for around 3 months, I can truly say, this works! Thank goodness for Dr. Urbanek! I wish I would have known about this treatment years ago. I’m so glad my dentist referred Dr. Urbanek. Now I am pain free and very glad I went with his plan for me! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

After struggling for two decades with ear, shoulder, and neck pain that lead to migraines on a regular basis I came to see Dr. Urbanek. Mere weeks after wearing my splint my migraines haven’t returned, my shoulder and neck pain have subsided, and my ears no longer ring.

I came in from the recommendation of a friend. My pain had become unbearable, with ear pain, terrible headaches, neck pain, and general misery. I have a history of Bruxism and would destroy night guards. After speaking to my friend, I asked my dentist if I needed more than the typical mouth guard and he sent me next door to Dr. Urbanek for a consultation. The new mouth piece has been great, I’m much more aware of how often I had been subconsciously clenching my jaw. It has been the only relief to pain for a long time, I highly recommend giving it a chance!

I had dealt with jaw pain since high school and it got progressively worse to where it was diffficult to bite an apple without pain. I was referred to Dr Urbanek and he was able to quickly diagnose my problem. We began treatment and after 4 mounts I am eating apples with no pain and feel 80% better. Wish I had done this sooner.

After years of having problems with my ears and jaw I starting having serious jaw pain. Then after trying nightguards that didn’t work I called Dr. Urbanek. He explained everything in detail about why I was experiencing the pain and gave me a splint. That splint changed my life and took my symptoms away in 2 months. I highly recommend calling him if you are having jaw pain!

I have had terrible headaches and ear pain for years. I thought that both of these symptoms were something that I had to just live with. I was referred to Dr Urbanek to help find a solution. After wearing the mouth splint, my headaches have completely disappeared and the feeling that my ears are always clogged has left. I would recommend anyone that struggles with chronic headaches and many other symptoms that relate to the head to give this try. I can finally live a normal life without having to rely on medicine to combat my symptoms.

Dr. Urbanek’s device has been a godsend for the year of pain and symptoms I have endured due to TMJ. I came in with severe bouts of vertigo, ringing in the ears, and persistent neck pain. The ringing in my ears subsided the first day I received my device. After about 4 or 5 months, all other symptoms I experienced diminished by 95%. I followed Dr. Urbanek’s instructions without fail, which sped up the significant diminishing of my symptoms. I highly recommend Dr. Urbanek’s for future patients.

I have headaches for 10 plus years now and the last past 6 months to a year they had gotten worse. I was having migraines 3 to 4 times a week. My neck, shoulders, and jaws would hurt also. I went to my primary doctor and they said I had TMJ. They referred me to Dr. Urbanek. I am so glad they did. The Urbanek TMJ Splint has done wonders for me. The 1st 3 weeks for 24hr use I didn’t have any headaches. The other symptoms went away and I felt so much better. I wore it for 6 more weeks and still doing great. I would definitely recommend Dr. Urbanek for anymore struggling with TMJ.

I’ve had headaches for many years and more recently extreme jaw pain on just one side. My primary sent me to the dentist who sent me here. I was fitted for the splint and had relief rather quickly. I talk all day at work and adjusted just fine. I still have a bit to go but I feel good that I have this piece for life for whenever my jaw joint problems act up. Thank you!
