Meet Anthony P. Urbanek, DDS, MS, MD
TMJ Specialist in Brentwood, TN
Dr. Urbanek is a double-degree Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. Dr. Urbanek received his dental degree from Indiana University and his medical degree from Vanderbilt University. He is board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He has been the leading authority in treating TMD in Tennessee communities for over 35 years.
Dr. Urbanek designed and patented a TMJ Device, the “Urbanek Device”. This patented device is made of non-porous acrylic and is uniquely designed to allow only the front teeth to touch, leaving a small space between the back teeth. This removes 90% of the load from the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). By doing so, the inflammation is decreased and the symptoms are relieved.
