I first saw Dr. Urbanek when I was about 14years old. I was involved in a car accident , that involved a drunk driver. The TMJ surgery was a success. I was involved in another accident 4 or 5 years later, I was injured on the job. Dr. Urbanek had to perform reconstructive jaw surgery. I am still amazed that a few weeks post op he removed all four of my wisdom teeth. Now 26 years later I started to have headaches again, chest, shoulder, ear pain. My pcp , er doctor ‘s etc. could not figure out what was causing the pain. I decided to check with Dr. Urbanek and he told me it was an easy fix. I was relieved , no surgery just wear a splint. The nausea and vomiting are gone, my headaches are better and I just come in to have my device tightened. When I say Dr. Urbanek is the best in his field, I truly mean it.

Dr. Urbanek was extremely helpful and friendly. When I first explained my symptoms to him he knew exactly what was going on. Only two months after wearing the Splint I no longer suffer from jaw pain/locking. I am very pleased with everything he and his staff have done for me.

I started to hear my jaw pop in early high school. Thinking nothing of it, I went on with my daily life. My senior year rolled around and it became a problem when it would get stuck, so to speak. I then went to my first year of college and for the first time it locked up on me. I was unable to open my mouth wide. I tried to open it which caused me great pain. I was scared and didn’t know what happened. I woke up the next day with my jaw still in pain. I thought it would be fine after that, but that’s when it got bad. It would lock up more and more. I became scared of going out with friends to eat because if it locked up I couldn’t open my mouth wide enough to eat. One day in the summer, it locked up the longest it has and I felt frustrated because I couldn’t open my mouth wide enough to eat. I then started to look for help. My mom started searching for the best. I came here because I was at the point of trying anything. The Splint was a bit weird at first, but I am now at the two month mark and about 90% better! As now a sophomore in college, I have gone out and not been worried of people looking at me try to fit food into my mouth or be scared to go out with friend. I definitely owe my confidence to the doctor and staff here!

I had experienced jaw pain for years, but finally came to Dr. Urbanek when I began experiencing sharp ear pain. I saw the testimonials on his site and wasn’t sure if they were too good to be true, but I figured I didn’t have anything to lose (except hopefully the pain)! After speaking to him about my symptoms, I learned that what I had thought of as unrelated pains were actually all part of the same jaw joint pain, and I had been suffering for 20 years. Fortunately, my story has a very happy ending: after two months of wearing the Urbanek Splint, I am almost completely pain-free (like 90%!). I cannot believe the improvement of such a long period of pain in such a short amount of time. My only regret about the experience is that I didn’t know to come to see Dr. Urbanek sooner! Dr. Urbanek is friendly, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable. He was a pleasure to work with and actually listened to my symptoms.

I came to Dr. Urbanek with severe ear and jaw pain, and he was quickly able to tell me that TMJ disorder was the cause. I got my device and within just a few weeks my symptoms had abated. I would absolutely recommend him for all your TMJ needs.

Dr. Urbanek and his staff did an amazing job helping me overcome my issues from TMJ discomfort. I’m 85% better and hope that my testimony will help others. I would have given Dr. Urbanek a 5 instead of a 4 but I was a little intimated by his personality when I first met with him but I changed my attitude towards him after working with him on my follow up visits. Best of luck with your journey and definitely give Dr. Urbanek a chance to help you, you won’t be disappointed!

My jaw had been locking and clicking open and close for almost more than a year. At first I thought it will go away by itself, however it didn’t. Therefore, I saw Dr. A Urbanek and he helped me figure out that it was due to teeth clenching which I did not even know I did at the time. In very less time, I had a Splint in my mouth and in two month my jaw locking stopped. It is worth it because now I can yawn properly and open my mouth wide and chew properly without clicking of jaw.

It started when I was 15 years old, daily headaches, jaw pain, ear ache, it was painful to eat because my jaw would pop with every chew, I had neck pain, shoulder pain, all of which I contributed to stress and being thrown off a horse when I was younger. One day I went to the doctor with what I thought was a severe ear infection. My jaw was numb and it hurt from my ear to my mouth, one of the worst pains I had felt in a while. It turned out I had TMJ, who knew!! All these years I dealt with all of these symptoms on a daily basis and was miserable. After meeting with Dr. Urbanek and wearing my device as directed, I am now 80% better. But I n Know my triggers that make it worse and make it flare up, that is when I wear my device more during the day. I am now going to bring my daughter in! Thank you Dr. Urbanek!

Before using the Splint, I had an extreme pain in the right side of my jaw. It would be difficult for me to eat, yawn, or basically do anything requiring my jaw to open. Additionally, a loud pop would follow that friends could hear from across the table. Because of the severity, I’d considered not eating in front of others. Giving the Splint a try was a giant leap of faith, and there were moments when I had my doubts, but the Splint was the best choice I made! It helped to ease the headaches and popping that would follow with opening my mouth, and now I’m comfortable to eat around others without pain. I would definitely recommend for others who experience the same pain that follows with TMJ.

I could have avoided 40 years of brutal head and neck pain and several misdiagnosis if any doctor had recommended Dr Urbanek before now. I’m grateful a dentist did finally send me to Dr Urbanek because pain is not going to hamper the future like it has the past.

I experienced headaches, ear pain, and neck pain for years without an understanding of the cause. Most recently my jaw began to lock. This was the symptom that brought me to Dr. Urbanek. After wearing the Urbanek Splint, I quickly noticed a difference in my symptoms and my jaw has not locked since. Very thankful!

Finding Dr Urnenak has been such a blessing. I suffered with TMJ for a year. I went to multiple doctors and dentists. I had many ER visits. No one knew how to help me. It was the worst pain I have ever experienced. When I met Dr Urbanek he was familiar with every symptom I was experiencing. That in itself was so relieving it brought me to tears. After using the TMJ Splint I had relief from my pain almost instantly. Now a year later I am pain free. I am so Thankful for this.

I had went to several specialists in over the years, trying to figure out why I had constant migraines and was waking up with a locked jaw. All I got was run around answers, medical bills and more headaches. Dr. Urbanek was great about asking a lot of questions and wanted to know about every symptom. Came to find out that I have a jaw growth. So now I wear a specialized retainer and haven’t had any migraines in over 6 months. What a relief!

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.
