When I first came to see Dr. Urbina, I was having constant headaches, jaw pain, and neck pain. I started using the device almost a year ago now and I feel like I’ve gotten my life back! My symptoms are about 80% gone and I’m SO thankful for this device and Dr. Urbina’s help!

This tooth guard has been game changer for me! I went from having ear pain 3-6 times a month to rarely now. I never go without wearing it at night as living pain free has been amazing. The doctor and his staff have been amazing! Highly recommend!

This has truly been a life changing event regarding the quality of my life. Previous to attaining the splint I had exhausted a plethora of time and resources and finding only temporary to no results from my symptoms of migraines, numbness, jaw locking, ear pain, etc. After the first three weeks of use I saw a reduction of the aforementioned symptoms by approximately 80%. I highly recommend this device to anyone suffering from TMJ!

I have suffered from migraines, TMJ, neck and shoulder pain since my mid-forties: I’m 60 now. A couple months ago I woke with terrible pain in my jaw, I thought maybe a tooth had gone bad. My dentist referred me to Dr. Urbanek’s office. I was seen and heard and measured for a Urbanek TMJ splint, and after five weeks, my symptoms have all improved by at least 80%. I wish I had known about this doctor and the device many years ago. The doctors and office staff are all professional and kind. They are all heroes in my book.

The TMJ device that I got has helped with my jaw health SOOO MUCH. I rarely have headaches now and it relieves the tension in my jaw. The staff and doctors are amazing and super helpful. The actual device is like a retainer, it sits at the roof of your mouth without people being able to see it. It gives you a slight lisp, but no need to fear, it eventually goes away and gets easier to talk with it in. Overall, I’m very pleased with my experience here and my TMJ device was 100% worth it!

I had so much pain after a Total Joint Replacement surgery and didn’t think I would be able to open my mouth wide again. Thanks to my device and proper mouth exercises that Dr. Urbanek gave me I am not only opening wider but I’m almost pain free and most of my symptoms diminished!!

I have been struggling with jaw pain for over fourty years and so much pain. I was given an option for surgery and I am so glad I didn’t go through with it. I finally found hope and total relief. I have went to several doctors and none of them had any idea how to treat for TMJ. I am greatfull that I have a doctor who completely understands what I was going through and has resolved all my issues. I am totally free from the jaw and ear pain.

I came to Dr. Urbanek after a referral from my dentist to treat my symptoms which had come back. In the past I had gone to an ear, nose and throat doctor for the pain on the right side of my head around my ear. At the time I thought I was losing my hearing but that came out negative and I walked away with no idea what was wrong. There wasn’t just pain; I had spouts of vertigo as well. Still the issues and pain compounded: pain in the jaw, my head, my neck, dizziness... After being finally diagnosed with TMJ, I was able to get treatment. Knowing what was the problem helped me know what to do. Over time things changed and the same symptoms came again, with a referral from my dentist I was about to connect with Dr. Urbanek and his staff to find a way to ease the pain. I’m not finished but I feel I’m on the right path. Right now I’m about 95% pain free which is tremendous from where I was.

Before using the Urbanek splint, I had incredible amounts of pain. I couldn’t eat or chew any solids. I was completely dependent on liquid or puréed food. I saw several specialists none of whom knew what was wrong or how to give me effective treatment. At my first visit, Dr. Urbanek diagnosed my pain and recommended his splint as treatment. I have been wearing the splint as prescribed and have noticed a considerable difference. I am able to eat solid food again! I have far less pain 6 months later! I thought I was going to be in huge amounts of pain for the rest of my life. Thank you Dr. Urbanek!

I had been suffering with ear pain and headaches for over 20 years. Once I got my TMJ device and started wearing it as Dr. Urbina prescribed, my symptoms began decreasing. After almost a year, it’s hard to remember how I used to feel. I am so blessed to have found them!

Dealt with issues related to TMJ problems for 40 years until I found Dr. Urbanek. Neck, jaw joint, and head pain, inability to fully open my mouth, neck and back pain. Frustration. I was treated previously for this problem with no improvement by a practitioner in Ohio. The device Dr. Urbanek gave to me has decreased my symptoms by 80%. Thank you to my dentist at Lenox Village who knew about Dr. Urbanek and his device and recommended I see him. I’m so pleased with my results and happy that I found Dr. Urbanek.

Dr. Urbanek is very knowledgeable. The Urbanek Device has eliminated the majority of my daily symptoms in just a few months! It is no longer painful to eat breakfast in the morning, I do not wake up with headaches or facial swelling. The TMJ splint was worth the investment.

I began experiencing TMJ symptoms roughly 20 years ago. Until meeting with Dr Urbanek I was given little to no treatment options or options that were financially impossible or suggestive of surgery to which I had no interest in pursuing. I had basically given up any hope that there was anything that could done about the numerous symptoms, some of which I was unaware were even related to TMJ. My jaw no longer clicks to open, feels tight, fatigues upon exertion, or locks. My neck pain, tinnitus, headaches, and general dull ache felt around my jaw joint have all significantly improved. Although the device provided by Dr Urbanek was somewhat out of my financial capabilities, the alternate payment options provided allowed me to get the device and I would do it 10x over if I had had any idea that my symptoms and quality of life would improve to this degree. I am extremely thankful to have found Dr Urbanek and given his device a chance.

For the majority of my adult life I have suffered from severe headaches, frequent earaches, and severe neck and shoulder pains. I have gone to many doctors including chiropractor and ENT. My dentist recommended that I see Dr. Urbanek. It is one of the best decisions I have made. After just a couple of months, I feel 100% better. My headaches, earaches, neck and shoulder pain have almost vanished. I would recommend Dr. Urbanek to anyone dealing with the same symptoms I have dealt with for years!

I have suffered with searing burning shoulder pain in my right shoulder and neck for years. In addition I had right sided migraine and popping and fullness in both ears and have developed ringing in my left ear. I saw my primary care doctor who sent me to and ENT and 2as told there was nothing I could do. I also tried Botox injection in my jaw muscle to try to prevent teeth grinding. This did not work. I have had massages regularly, with transient relief at times, and tried dry needling gas well. After using Dr Urbanek’s device for 2 weeks I was much better, I have not had recurrent migraines and the burning chronic pain in my shoulder and neck are gone. I am very grateful. Before I thought there was no hope, and I am happy to know, I was wrong. Dr Urbanek’s device was the solution.

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!

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.

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.
