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 had severe TMJ inflammation when I heard about Dr Urbanek. It was affecting what I ate and how I functioned daily. I had been using a night guard for 6+ years and it was not stopping the downward spiral of issues including ear aches, teeth and jaw pain, headaches, tightness in my neck and shoulders and even tingling in my fingers. On several occasions I was able to do nothing except pack my jaws with ice packs. Im so thankful that a friend shared with me about someone who dealt directly with this issue.

I have resume my normal activities and my family is excited for me, everyone was worried since my doctors didn’t seem to have any explanations or answers for why I was having so much pain. I’m so grateful to Dr. Urbina, Dr. Urbanek and staff for the care I received.

This is the best referral I have ever had in my life. So many symptoms I had, no one could explain. I finally found the piece of the puzzle that was missing. My other Physicians were pleased also, now that we have answers. I have had unexplained tingling in my jaw and shoulder, a feeling of fullness in my head, headaches, tinnitus, my jaw felt misaligned and the list continues. I am grateful for my TMJ splint. Most of my symptoms have been resolved or a great improvement in just 3 weeks. My splint is comfortable and I don't mind wearing it. The results are fabulous. Dr. Urbanek is very competent and nice as well as his office staff. I am one happy patient!

When I first came in, my jaw was so bad that I was getting headaches every day. After the first three months of coming to Dr. Urbanek, my headaches went away and my jaw wasn’t so tense. I love it here and the people are great too!

This new avenue in dental procedures has been the most pleasant. Everyone was professional, instructional and graciously kind. A simple fitting session and in three weeks, the new tmj was ready to wear. Excellent instructions both verbally and written were use and appreciated. Thank you Dr. Urbina and fellow staff.

I began this experience with tingling numbness in my right cheek area... my dentist referred me to Dr. Urbanek. Once I met with him, he explained that a multitude of my symptoms were brought on by TMJ. After wearing the device, I’ve noticed that close to 80% of my symptoms are gone.

I have suffered from headaches, migraines and jaw stiffness and pain for over 10 years. I was recommended here by my dentist when my jaw locked up. After using the splint for 3 weeks, I didn’t have much relief but when I came back to the office Dr. Urbanek thickened the plastic of the splint and that worked like magic. Other than when I am under a lot of stress, my jaw stiffness and pain is basically non-existent.

If Dr. Urbanek can’t fix it, it probably can’t be done. I did everything he told me to do, and gradually became almost 100% free of my previous symptoms. I would recommend Dr Urbanek very highly. What a nice guy and he certainly knows what he’s doing.
