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 was suffering with a consent ear aches and jaw pain for months. I tried heating pads, Advil and massage with nothing but temporary relief. After a consultation with Dr. Urbina he identified my TMJ and the cause. After wearing the device for about 6 weeks I saw 85-90% reduction of pain and symptoms. I only wish I had seen him sooner.

I awoke one morning a year ago unable to open my mouth more than around 25% of the normal amount. Trying to open it any wider resulted in pretty severe pain. I scheduled an appointment with Doctor Urbanek and was treated with a small mouth appliance, much like a retainer, that I wore constantly for a few months, and then only while sleeping. Gradually it freed up my jaws and allowed full opening of my mouth. The pain also subsided fairly quickly. I would recommend this to anyone suffering with TMJ. Now I am back to normal! Thanks Doctor Urbanek

My TMJ was first diagnosed in 2010; with the help of an upper appliance that Dr. Urbanek had specifically made for me, I do not have the terrible headaches and I am actually able to fully lay down to sleep without headaches. I would highly recommend that you seek the help of Dr. Urbanek in treating your TMJ.

Before I started using this device I had a lot of pain that was concentrated mostly on the right side of my face. All the way from my head to the middle of my shoulders. It was a lot and I was just constantly in pain. I ended up coming and getting this device that was said to help with my symptoms. It worked very well even within the first few weeks. I saw great improvement after just the first week. Finally, I was not in pain all the time. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I would do it again if given the choice.

Dr. Urbina has been so helpful to me during my journey of relieving the jaw pain that I have been experiencing. When I first visited the office, I was somewhat uncertain about how successful the Urbanek splint would be. I wore it as directed, and with much relief it has been very effective at helping my jaw pain. I would recommend anyone experiencing similar symptoms to me to give the Urbanek device a chance!

I have had ear, jaw and neck pains for above thirty years and have been to several doctors and dentists and non of them diagnosis my problem! On my first visit to Dr. Urbanek, he told me I had TMJ and fitted me with an appliance. After wearing the appliance for about two months, twenty-four hours a day, my pains are seventy- five percent gone! Thank you Dr Urbanek!

I had started to notice many headaches. We went in to look into TMJ and that listed so many other symptoms I had no idea were being caused. Fast forward 5 months and almost all of my symptoms have gone down or gone fully away.

I was diagnosed over 30 years ago with TMJ and basically was told I would have to live with it which I did until Dr. Urbanek. He has taken away my headaches, jaw pain and overall jaw discomfort! Thank you Dr. Urbanek

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!
