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 always thought my jaw pain was something that everyone went through and I just had to deal with it. It wasn’t until my headaches, neck pain, and jaw pain continued to increase that I told my parents and they told me it was not normal. I went to my dentist and told him my symptoms and he recommended me to Dr. Urbanek! I am so grateful for Dr. Urbanek, his staff, and his device. My pain has overwhelmingly reduced in just 3 weeks! I will always be thankful for him and would recommend him to anyone I knew!

Cam into the office with lots of symptoms that I had been dealing with for years. I did not realize I had TMJ and the doctor explained things to me, so that I could understand. Paid for the device and slowly all my symptoms started feeling better! I never forget to wear it at night, because I can tell a huge difference when using this device! Thanks so much!

I began to notice about 25 years ago I began to have less room for my tongue with knots forming along on the back of the gum line. I started with clinching my jaws and grinding. Began having ringing in my ears, some headaches and nervousness. Lots other symptoms. I went to my dentist and she referred me to Dr. Urbanek and stared my recovery with a splint. It helped and I decided to have these tori removed and would say it was worth it. Very little pain.

This office/ TMJ Splint has changed my life. I was in severe pain for over 10 years, and never knew if my jaw was going to lock or not when I was going to open it. When it did lock, it was a guessing game to how long it would last. Since wearing the splint, all of my pain has left! The locking of my jaw is still a work in progress, but I’m only 3 weeks into wearing the splint! I highly recommend this office and this splint. It truly has changed my whole life already. I can’t wait to see what happens in a couple more weeks!

I’ve had TMJ issues for over thirty years, gradually getting to the point of constant pain and locking. In the first 3 months of treatment by Dr Urbanek, I’ve had a 97% reduction in pain symptoms and no occurrences of locking. The only treatment that has worked. Thanks to Dr Urbanek and all of his staff.

I broke my jaw 2 years ago during football practice. I played for the next two years and every day my jaw would lock and hurt and some days I could hardly eat. The device has almost completely alleviated my symptoms and prevented me from having to have surgery.

I’m so glad I came here! I had bad TMJ and I thought it was over for me! I couldn’t chew, yarn or just open my mouth without my jaw hurting. I been to other dentists that put me on a “no chewing” diet (ridiculous) or they didn’t know what to do! I’m glad I came here because it is garenteed that they will fix the problem you have! With the methods and splint Dr. Urbanek recommended me helped me big time. Dr. Urbanek and his team are very nice, patient, and honest. They will get right to the point to help you in anyway.

Before coming to Dr. Urbanek I was having all the problems. Jaw pain, migraines, neck pain, numbness in my fingers and tingling. I tried everything and when I started using the splint I found relief. If you have tried everything like me, I encourage you to come see him! I would recommend this office and the splint to anyone who is having any of the symptoms I had, especially headaches. Thank you Dr. Urbanek!

Dr. Urbanek and the Dr. Urbanek Device is an answer to many questions many dental professionals have not been able to answer. Living with TMJ symptoms was slowly becoming my normal. I was referred to Dr. Urbanek and the Dr. Urbanek device finally gave me relief I’ve been searching for. Not only has it reduced or completely erased prior symptoms, it has also relieved many symptoms I did not even associate with TMJ.

The stress of teaching was catching up to me, and I began to notice a lot of pain in my jaw, cheeks, and my teeth became tremendously sensitive. My husband suggested I come see Dr. Urbanek because he had a very positive outcome due to his treatment. After about a week of treatment, my pain was gone and my teeth were back to normal. Continued treatment has improved my health and stress levels. Definitely worth the visit!

I started with my jaw pain a while back and it seemed to be getting worse over time, eventually it got to the point where I couldn’t even bite into an apple without my jaw hurting so bad. I had been to other doctors who simply didn’t do anything but when I came here I got the help I needed. Now my pain is practically gone, I can eat, talk, sing without having to worry about it hurting when I open my mouth!

The device worked wonders for me. I went to Dr. Urbanek for a second opinion because I didn’t agree with my previous dentist about my TMJ issues. Dr. Urbanek is very knowledgeable and his device started relieving my pain after the first day. After 6 weeks I hardly have any TMJ symptoms.

I have suffered from headaches, neck pain, tinnitus, ear pain, dizziness/vertigo, jaw pain/tightness and visual floaters for three years now. I was referred to Dr. Urbanek by my dentist and ENT and finally decided to make an appointment after seeing many other specialists. After wearing Dr. Urbanek’s Splint device, 95 percent of my symptoms have gone away, since they were due to TMJ. The TMJ device is comfortable to wear and I am so glad I came to this office and got the TMJ Splint. I would recommend Dr. Urbanek to anyone I know who is suffering with various symptoms and has been told they have migraine headaches. TMJ turned out to be the cause for me. Thank you for everything Dr. Urbanek!

My dentist referred me to Dr. Urbanek for treatment for TMJ pain after my jaw had “locked.” After discussing past and present symptoms, Dr. Urbanek recommended the dental device. After wearing it 24/7 for three weeks, nearly all of my symptoms are gone. Sometimes people have a hard time understanding me and I get frustrated, but the 24/7 time period is temporary and it has been well worth it in terms of relief.
