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 have suffered with jaw pain, Trigeminal neuralgia, neck pain, shoulder, pain and migraines from TMJ for years. Sometimes the symptoms would last for months and could be debilitating. I never thought that a small device similar to a retainer could help resolve 90-95% of my symptoms. I was very skeptical, but had reached the point of desperation. This Urbanek dental device is truly a life savor. After 2 months of wearing it all day and night I saw a 60-70% reduction. Then after another 3 months of wearing it at night, I have had a full 90-95% reduction in my symptoms. It has been 5 months all together and I could not be more pleased with the results. This device is truly amazing in what it has for my livelihood and dad to day activities. I recommend it to anyone who suffers from severe TMJ symptoms.

Great experience with Dr. Urbanek. Came in for an issue with TMJ and within 2 months my symptoms decreased by 90%. After consultation he took imprints of my mouth and bite and had a special bite guard built. I have followed his instructions to the letter and what he said would happen has happened. I can’t thank he and his staff enough. They are professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. As long as you follow his steps 100% you will have positive results and a solution to your problem. Thank you Dr. Urbanek and staff.

I have had increasing pain in my jaws, teeth, head, neck, and even down my arm. The pain started several years ago and came in cycles but kept getting worse. I saw several other doctors in many specalizations then was referred here. It took a while for the device to work fully, but after 9 months of wearing the device I can say the pain is gone and most of my other symptoms like ringing in my ears which goes back 35 years is getting better. I will keep wearing this device because it is helping me. Don’t give up. It may take a while, but I can say that it has definitely helped me.

I came in after dealing with years of pain in my jaw, jaw locking, migraines weekly and desperate for relief. I had tried everything I could think of to deal with the issues, while I was able to get temporary relief it always came back within a few days at most. Then I was referred to Dr. Urbanek. Within the first few weeks of using his device I had less pain and no migraines. After a few months I am pain free, for the first time in years! I wish I could have met him sooner, this has been a life changing experience. I am able to eat without having to worry if my jaw will lock, I don’t wake up in pain from either my jaw or my headaches. I never realized how limited TMJ had made my day to day life. I am so thankful for this experience.

I have had jaw pain for over 20 years and just thought it would be something to “live with”, but after a referral to Dr. Urbanek thing have greatly improved. After treatment with the Urbanek splint (not a retainer), my painful symptoms of TMD are gone. The device has been a jaw-saver. I would 100% recommend that anyone with TMD visit Dr. Urbanek and start treatment. Jaw pain does not have to be something you “live with” anymore, this splint will help!

I have had headaches, jawpain, neckpain, popping jaw, locking jaw, and ear ringing for around five years now. I had no idea what was going on, and was constantly burdened by the symptoms going on. Dr. Urbanek took the time to explain what was going on and told me that all of the pain could go away. He explained to me what the TMJ Splint was, how it works, and I was fitted for the device the same day. After 6 weeks of using the device the symptoms dramatically reduced, almost completely, and Dr. Urbanek explained that they would only continue to go down as more time passed. I am very glad to have come to Dr. Urbanek, and will be forever grateful for his help in getting rid of the painful symptoms of TMJ.

When I came to this office over two years ago I was having chronic headaches muscle pains in my neck jaw pain excruciating right ear pain that would wake me up at night if I was to sleep on it. I had been evaluated by ENT, dentists and neurologist until I was asked if I would mind getting evaluated by Dr Urbanek, I said sure why not. The first visit he gave me a diagnosis TMJ, talked about the TMJ Splint and went ahead with making the splint. It was great after just a couple months my pain was now almost completely gone

I’ve been plagued with symptoms of neck pain, headaches, and shoulder pain for a long time and just assumed these were from stress. When I developed more focal jaw ache and consulted Dr. Urbanek, he immediately recognized these symptoms as all related to a jaw joint problem. As a physician, I realized his explanation not only made since but was essentially the only way all these symptoms could be linked. In a couple of months of following his simple plan, I am finally free of these problems from which I have been suffering for years!

Before being referred to Dr. Urbanek for my severe TMJ pain, earaches, and headaches, I was convinced I would have to deal with the pain for the rest of my life. When I was told there was hope for relief by using the TMJ Splint, I was so excited to get started on the process of getting it made. After wearing it for about a week, I could already tell a huge difference in the way my ears, jaws, and head felt. Dr. Urbanek and his device are a definite God send. Well worth every penny spent. I recommend him to everyone I speak with that has TMJ pain.

Every year my jaw would pop and then I could no longer open it. Every time I swallowed, a piercing stabbing pain would shoot from my ear down my throat. It would last for 3-4 days and the pain was excruciating. After using my new TMJ device, my jaw no longer locks! It is the only thing that works. It has been amazing!
