I thought I had fluid on the ear due to a naggy persistent dull ache; frequent headaches in my right temple area was also becoming more frequent. Little did I know I was clenching my teeth at night and the pain I was experiencing was my jaw. This was still with wearing a night guard made by my dentist. The clenching problem was also unknowingly causing neck and shoulder tension and tightness. After 8 weeks of wearing the mouth guard created by Dr. Urbanek the relief of virtually no habitual clenching is a life changer. I wake up in the mornings with no pain or tightness in my neck, head or mouth. Thank you for your help.

Dr. Urbanek’s TMJ splint is absolutely spectacular. I came to his office unable to fully close my mouth due to the pain I felt in my jaw. After wearing the splint for several weeks I no longer hurt, and am able to fully close my mouth. I would recommend a visit to anyone feeling discomfort in their jaw.

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!

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.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

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.

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.
