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.

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!

I came in with severe jaw pain and difficulty opening my mouth wide. I would also have ear pain. After wearing the splint as directed I feel so much better. When I open my mouth wide I feel no discomfort. Thank you Dr. Urbanek.

After finally being diagnosed with TMJ by Dr. Urbanek, he recommended the mouth piece. It was amazing how my symptoms started decreasing. I did have jaw surgery, which was a big success. I am now 100% free of all my original symptoms. Dr. Urbanek and his staff have been wonderful! BL

I had no hope, after being left with no options from three other oral surgeons; Dr. Urbanek listened to my symptoms and concerns. He assured me, I was not alone and that there was hope for me. Dr. Urbanek’s TMJ Splint gave me my life back; I can talk, chew, and sleep with little to no pain, locking, popping, or clicking in my jaw. Dr. Urbanek and his whole staff are wonderful, I’ve never had a better experience at any other dental or oral surgery practice.

I had experienced a great deal of pain from TMJ and grinding my teeth at night as have most of my family. Since I have been being treated with Dr. Urbanek’s Splint I have stopped grinding my teeth and the pain has gone away. I thank God for the talented staff at TMJ . I also have other issues with ear that have subsided to a bad memory.

I suffered for over 20 years with migraines, jaw pain, numbness in my arm, neck pain, and ringing ears. I have seen multiple doctors over the years with multiple testing. I never got relief. When I woke up one morning, my jaw was hurting so bad I couldn’t open it. That’s what led me to Dr Urbanek and the diagnosis of TMJ disorder. I had a mouth splint made specifically for me, and the rest is history! My migraines are pretty much non existent. No neck pain. No arm numbness. No ringing ears. And my jaw feels fabulous!! Thank you, Dr Urbanek for helping me gain the quality of life I have now! No more missed time with my husband and children because of nasty migraines.

I’ve had problems with my TMJ for a very long time. I had TMJ surgery many, many years ago, which helped a great deal, but didn’t wear the mouth guard the way I was supposed to, so it got steadily worse. I grit my teeth, don’t grind them. I came back to Dr. Urbanek. My surgery site still looked good. Dr Urbaneck recommended a new mouth guard. It has helped a great deal.

I hesitated with calling Dr. Urbanek because I knew the “device” was not covered by insurance. After months of dealing with all of my symptoms, the worst being the constant ear pain and feeling as if I had been stuck under water, insurance coverage or not, I had to try it. Based on other testimonials, I was optimistic that I would have good results. 4 weeks in and the majority of symptoms have significantly diminished; most importantly the ear pain. I am very happy with my results thus far, I just now wish that I had not waited so long to make the call.

For years I have been so embarrassed by my jaw popping loudly when I eat. It was annoying and concerning. My dentists recommended I see Dr. Urbanek. The more he taught me about my TMJ, the more I realized how much it was affecting my life. It was the root of all evil, haha. It has been the cause of my headaches, body numbness, nausea, dizziness, and everything in between. I’m very stubborn, so once I received my device I didn’t always wear it. It took some getting used to. Even though I didn’t wear it 24/7, I could still see a difference. I am not encouraging you to be stubborn like me. My point is that it was easy for me to feel better. I was scared of letting my TMJ go on untreated. I was afraid it would turn into my jaw locking up. I’m thankful I no longer have to worry about any of that. Thank you Dr. Urbanek.
