I’ve been dealing with TMD for almost 25 years and I can honestly say that I’ve finally found a Doctor to help me and this issue and not mask it. I came in with constant clenching, jaw pain, headaches, bad quality of sleep, tightness in my jaw muscles and neck, and my jaw locking. Previous dentists recommended Botox shots to relax the muscles and a night guard. And the night guard was just masking the problem and protecting my teeth, but not helping to fix this issue. I was told a lot of people grind and clench their teeth, it’s normal. Luckily, my current dentist referred me to TMJ Services and it’s been night and day since. I don’t have constant jaw pain, I’m sleeping better, I don’t wake up with headaches or get them throughout the day, no constant jaw pain, and I’m able to open my mouth more. And I’m more aware of when I’m clenching so I can make sure I have my device in and am actively relaxing the muscles. I recommend this to everyone and I think every dentist needs to refer patients this route if they are experiencing these symptoms. This way we can start to heal and not mask the issue.

I came to see doctor do to some aching in my ear. I had seen primary doctor and dentist. My dentist recommended Dr. Urbina. On my first visit we talked about all my system from ear to shoulders to head. Since I started with my mouth piece I noticed some differences. On my second visit I am not having many headaches and pain both shoulders has gone. I am sleeping much better at night as well. I higher recommend coming for a visit.

I lived 20 years with a pop in my left jaw and one day it just slipped, I came to Dr. Urbanek’s office and was evaluated and fit with a device that kept spac e between my back teeth. I was a jaw clenched and didn’t know it. After 6 months I found relief and have been pain free for pretty much the rest of the year. I’d say it’s another success story for the books, I’m very grateful for my device and still wear it through the night. Thank you for relieving my jaw pain!

I have had jaw and back problems since middle school including my jaw popping continuously when I would eat food, my jaw lock out of place randomly, back pain, and tingling in my arms when my jaw was popping and locking frequently. Recently I was recommended to look into a TMJ solution. Up to this point, I had been told I would grow out of it or my back was just out of place. With Dr.Tony then learn TMJ relaxation may be the issue, where I have a tendency to bit and lock my jaw throughout the day was causing too much tension. In a matter of two weeks I could tell a huge difference in my headaches and tingling. Now two months later my jaw popping when eating has dramatically decreased as well. All without surgery!

It’s amazing how using the TMJ splint has helped in reducing so much of the pain and discomfort. I highly recommend this device to anyone who has any of these symptoms. You will be pleasantly surprised by the relief and results.

Dr. Urbanek is very knowledgeable and was able to explain what was going on with my jaw pain. His device has helped reduce my jaw pain and I was highly recommended his device to anyone who is having jaw pain, locking of the jaw, etc. His staff is super nice and friendly.

I wish I would have done this years ago!! After only a few weeks I am so much better! No more morning head aches, neck pain or ringing in my ears! I have stopped relaying on advil for my pain control! I was in a lot of pain most evening and I would massage my jaw with little relief, I am happy to say I don’t do that anymore!

I came in with pain and unable to open my mouth all the way. I received my appliance and within two weeks I had relief from pain and major discomfort. My only regret is that I didn’t come sooner.

I went to my doctor for chronic ear pain. He sent me to an ENT who immediately recommended Dr. Urbanek for TMJ. I came in Dr. Urbanek went over the whole procedure thoroughly and how the mouth piece would work. Once I received it I immediately started wearing it. Three weeks later I am pain free. For seven months I had constant ear pain, in three weeks I have no ear pain.

My experience has helped me avoid lock jaw that I had started experiencing quite often. My jaws ached and I could not close my mouth or even eat properly without pain. The Dr fitted me with a device that I have worn for about ten weeks full time to keep me from gritting my teeth especially at night time. I am now wearing the device only at night and have no trouble sleeping nor has my jaws locked up on me anymore. I have appreciated being able to sleep restfully and not dread waking up with jaw pain. Thank you for helping me. It has made such a big difference.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I originally went to my dentist with complaints that my teeth no longer lined up. Essentially, when I tried to bite down, my front teeth hit before my back teeth. It was causing a lot of discomfort. When I told my dentist she exclaimed, “that should not be happening!” For 5 years, no-one believed my problem was a real problem. Dr. Amy Coogler (Dentist) is fantastic and told me to seek out a TMJ consult. Upon self reflection, I realized I wasn’t just clenching my jaw at night. I was clenching my jaw at all times. During my first visit with Dr. Urbina (TMJ), he explained to me all the issues that can be linked/associated with TMJ. I thought it had just been a byproduct of a bad tooth removal 5 years previous, but he theorizes that I’ve been clenching my jaw for the majority of my life based off of bone growth. I was told my jaw muscles are too strong and thus causes the bones to develop more to compensate. The amount of inflammation in my jaw muscle was far greater than I knew. One of my complaints was this seemingly random facial pain that was localized below my left eye. It was inconsistent and a sharp pain. Google would suggest that I have brain cancer. Dr. Urbina explained that the TM Joint is so integrated with the surrounding area, that it is entirely possible to have been caused by my sever jaw clenching. I was also intermittently dizzy later diagnosed with an inner ear crystals problem. Who’s to say this also was not related to my clenching? It potentially could have been a driving factor. Regardless, after using the Urbanek device, the pain below my left eye has completely resolved. I have not had a single event of it since beginning treatment. Dizziness is still happening every couple of months but seems to be related to lying down too quickly instead. The inflammation of my jaw is still semi-present but the overall soreness and uncomfortable nature of my jaw muscles has improved. I now wear the device at night three days in a row and take a day off in between. I will continue to come to his office and talk about my progress. We have now scheduled an orthodontist referral to assess what improvements can be done with fixing my bite. I thank Dr. Urbina for his expertise and teaching skills. I have learned a lot about this and try to spread the message that this pain is remarkably treatable.

I came in with major jaw popping and pain from inflammation. I was also having quite a few headaches from all the pain and soreness in my jaw. Since I have been using this splint I don’t have the pain from the inflammation anymore, the popping in my jaw has very little anymore. I am not having any headaches from having pain in my jaw either. I am very happy to have came and gotten help with the splint.

I came to see Dr Urbanek after experiencing pain symptoms in my left jaw area. I had popping sounds whenever I opened my mouth and continued pain throughout the day. Dr Urbanek examined me and fit me with the device. I was told to wear 24/7 for 3 wks. After 2 weeks, I could see a tremendous improvement. I continue to wear my device as requested and after 3 weeks I have no pain- minimal soreness, mostly im the morning after grinding the night before (I know this because of marks on the appliance). I am so thankful for this treatment and the success . My smile is bigger, and no more pain! What a great success story!

I had headaches, neck pain and right shoulder pain for almost thirty years. I have ringing in my ears and sinus issues. It wasn’t until I started having severe right jaw pain that I finally got relief from these multiple symptoms. After three weeks of wearing the Urbanek TMJ splint, the pain has drastically gone away. My jaw pain went away in the first week! The neck and shoulder pain is at a minimum. I no longer take pain medication daily, it’s been about a week since I have taken any pain medication. The sinus issues are coming down too. I highly recommend the Urbanek Device. I am looking forward to the being system free in the coming weeks. Thank you Dr. Urbanek!

After suffering with extreme jaw, neck and ear pain, as well as other symptoms, a friend of mine told me about the success she had with a TMJ device from Dr Urbanek. I had tried night guards, Physical Therapy and Botox. This device has helped me more than the rest of those treatments combined. I feel so much better! It’s a simple solution. I’m very thankful that it worked.

When my dentist referred me here, my TMJ symptoms were so severe that I could not open my mouth wide enough to use a fork or spoon, and my jaw would lock when I opened it too wide. I had a plethora of other symptoms daily, including piercing jaw pain, that have dissipated over the last several months due to the use of my TMJ device. I am grateful for Dr. Urbina and recommended that anyone suffering from TMJ, consider using this device. It has improved my quality of life tremendously.

I had left jaw pain, clicking of my jaw, stress in my neck & regular headaches. Within 3 months of using the splint 24 hrs a day, the jaw pain & clicking disappeared. Within months more, the headaches stopped & the stress in my neck has almost discontinued. I have accidentally forgotten to put it in a few nights. On those nights I have awakened after a few hours & identified that the splint was missing & immediately got up to put it in to get a peaceful night’s sleep!

I had been in a lot of pain for years, with headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain etc… tried so many options to treat TMD, and nothing had worked. Decided to give DR Urbanek treatment a try! Glad I did! Three weeks ago I got my device, I’m only wearing it afternoons and nights due to its really hard to talk with it in, my job requires me to talk. However with in 3 weeks this device has took 90% of the pain away! I highly recommend this device!

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.
