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 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 had a terrible earache for four months and continuous migraines. My earche is gone and with this device and medication, my migraines have stopped. I also can open my mouth a lot more without pain since using this device. I can tolerate this device better than the generic over the counter ones. I do recommend this.

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!

I came to Dr. Urbina in the middle of a two-month-long season of severe jaw pain, stiffness, and swelling. The most severe I’d ever experienced. Dr. Urbina taught me all about the jaw joint and where exactly my pain was coming from. Within a matter of days, I was fitted for a special device that I now wear every single day. My pain is practically 100% gone, and I haven’t experienced a flair up in weeks. I’m so grateful for the ways Dr. Urbina and his team have helped me understand what was going on, how to resolve it, and have kept me pain-free ever since.
