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.

Initially I was very skeptical due to 20+ yrs of TMJ issues. After 5 months of severe hearing loss and jaw pain, my ENT referred me to Dr Urbanek. I researched his website and still thought I was a lost cause, due to Rheumatoid auto immune disease. I am always in pain. So after my first appt I realized Dr. Urbanek was my last chance for help. I was fitted for my mouth splint and after 2 days of wearing it, my hearing improved so much my husband noticed it. And after one month the severe inflammation improved. It was exactly what I needed. Now after a few months I am pain free and so very grateful. Thank you to his entire staff for helping me!

I suffered from severe headaches and migraines for over 13 years before I came here. I had a traumatic injury that obviously didn’t help but I was a bad teeth grinder as well. My regular dentist told me that he suspected I had TMJ and sent me to Dr. Urbanek and he literally changed my life. I went from having debilitating headaches 5 to 6 times a week ( and with 3 small kids time doesn’t stop) to maybe two a month (that are totally not TMJ related- probably related to 3 small kids ) . I would highly recommend the splint to any and everyone with TMJ issues. It changed my life for the better!!

Dr. Urbanek found that I have TMJ after seeing other professionals for years without a mention of the possible problem. After being fitted with the device I have seen an improvement in my sleep and pain level. As someone who has experienced pain for many years I can truthfully say this device has positively contributed to my overall health.

I first saw Dr. Urbanek when I was about 14years old. I was involved in a car accident , that involved a drunk driver. The TMJ surgery was a success. I was involved in another accident 4 or 5 years later, I was injured on the job. Dr. Urbanek had to perform reconstructive jaw surgery. I am still amazed that a few weeks post op he removed all four of my wisdom teeth. Now 26 years later I started to have headaches again, chest, shoulder, ear pain. My pcp , er doctor ‘s etc. could not figure out what was causing the pain. I decided to check with Dr. Urbanek and he told me it was an easy fix. I was relieved , no surgery just wear a splint. The nausea and vomiting are gone, my headaches are better and I just come in to have my device tightened. When I say Dr. Urbanek is the best in his field, I truly mean it.
