Our Latest Patient Testimonial

Before I came to Dr. Urbanek, I was always told that I had a bad inner ear infection. I never know that I had TMJ. I have had bad headaches and neck pain. I had to wear my device for about 3 months all day long. I didn’t think it was going to work. I had a hard time with it but I made it work. When I tell you I could tell a difference around the 3 month, I so glad that I came and got my device. Now I’m wearing it only at night time but I find myself might having to put it in something doing the day. I want to Thank Dr. Urbanek for listening and helping me with my problem.

Back in January I was diagnosed with TMJ & my jaw was locked for over 3 weeks!!!! My dentist Dr Jenkins referred me to Dr Urbanek. After so many ups & downs of emotions & being so uncomfortable there was a solution to my problem! Dr Urbanek figured out my problem during my 1st visit! The splint was the best and has been the best thing ever. It may be just a piece of plastic but it has taken sooo much tension off of my jaw joints! My jaw joints are irritated anymore my headaches are gone & I can now sleep at night without grinding my teeth!!! I definitely would recommend this to anyone that grinds their teeth and have serious jaw joint issues! I sleep like a baby now & if I dose off without I jump up looking for it!

I had been suffering with headaches, nausea, jaw pains, and what we thought were ear infections for a long period of time. After severe ear pains my doctor decided that I should see the ear nose throat specialist. All test came back great and they felt it could be TMJ so they sent me to see Dr. Urbanek. I didn’t know what to expect but Dr. Urbanek assured me that he would do everything he could to provide me the relief that I deserved. He listened to all my complaints and was so very caring and assuring that he could help me. I felt his genuine concern for my well being. Since receiving my device I have experienced a complete change in my life. I no longer wake up in pain and I’m able to enjoy life and my family without constant pain. I’m truly grateful that God placed Dr. Urbanek and this treatment into my life. I feel like I have life again.

Everyone from the staff to the doctor was so great and friendly. I came in with severe pain in jaw, neck, and shoulders… not to mention headaches and could only open my mouth but so far. After getting the device/mouth piece all symptoms diminished drastically. I was a little skeptical and yes it’s a little costly, but well worth it. I highly recommend this mouth piece!! Thanks Dr. Urbanek and staff!

I was having problems with excruciating pain in my right jaw with headaches, and ear aches. My dentist referred me to Dr Urbanek and he diagnosed TMJ. I have been wearing my retainer for less than 3 weeks and I have had no pain since. It is simply amazing.

I was experiencing pain and inflammation in my left temple and jaw. I learned I was bitting down at night when I was sleeping. I traveled 3 hours to get here to have my TMJ addressed because it was pretty bad. I am at my 6 or 7 week marker and I feel much more relaxed and my inflammation has reduced at least 85 to 90 percent. The pain is almost completely gone. Thank you for helping me overcome my TMJ! You guys Rock!!!

I was referred to Dr Urbina when my night guard was not resolving my grinding problems and 2 rounds of pain medication and muscle relaxers would not get my temporal mandibular joint pain to subside. I was grinding so hard that I was grinding though my night guard material. After 2 night guards in 3 years and 3 cracked molars from extensive grinding it was time for a new approach. The TMJ splint has helped me to rest easier and carry on with every day life. Whenever I do feel a bit of jaw pain (due to monthly hormonal changes) I simply wear my TMJ splint longer during the day and the symptoms subside.

I suffered with TMJ symptoms for around 40 years and I have bought numerous devices none of them seemed to work- they either went bad or they caused more problems than they solved.. I was very discouraged and in a lot of pain. My dentist recommended Dr. Urbanik After the device that he actually fitted for me and sold to me didn’t work. I was able to get an appointment with Dr Urbanek and he explained everything. He has created a device that works!!! The device fits in your mouth and it takes the pressure off of your joints. You use it like he says to use it and you will stop having the TMJ pain and symptoms -at least I did. My symptoms were so bad and if the device works for me it will surely work for you.

I was having horrible headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, vertigo, and shoulder pain. My dentist Dr. Nelson Wilson sent me to Dr. Urbanek and on the first visit I explained all my symptoms and got fitted for a mouth piece to wear 24/7. It’s amazing! I wear it everyday and at night and all my symptoms are gone. The worst was the headaches and jaw pain. So thankful for Dr. Urbanek!

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.

Before I got my retainer, I couldn’t open my mouth any wider than 33 degrees. I experienced bad ear and jaw aches, my ears would ring and often times I felt dizzy. After two months of wearing my retainer my symptoms drastically decreased, and I can now fully open my mouth again. It used to be so scary when my jaw would lock, and when I felt my symptoms. Now I don’t even think about it anymore, and I never worry about random ear ringing, dizziness or jaw pain again.

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!

Patient Success Stories


Many people who experience unexplained headaches, earaches, neck pain, jaw pain, vertigo or shoulder/arm pain do not realize that these symptoms are due to the inflammation in their JAW JOINT resulting in Temporomandibular Joint Disorders.

Nancy M. & Dr. Urbanek

“I have had over 30 yrs. of headache and frequent earaches which have gotten much more frequent and painful. after 3 weeks of use of the splint have had a 90 percent decrease of symptoms. now a very happy lady.” Nancy M.


L.A.D. & Dr. Urbanek
“I’ve experienced chronic ear pain for 30 years. Although, I do have a history of sinus and ear infections, my ear pain began to worsen to the point of not being able to sleep at night. I would wake up with pain so bad that it affected my hearing. I experienced ringing in my ears. Eventually, I found a new ENT who sent me to Dr. Urbanek. After three months my symptoms are 95% alleviated. I cannot say enough about his jaw splint and what it has done for the quality of my life.” L.A.D.
