    Before visiting Dr. Urbanek, I believed that there was no hope with curing my symptoms. I was having headaches and pain in my shoulders. I also had ear aches that stem back as far as childhood. Dr. Urbanek diagnosed me with TMJ and recommended a device, called a splint. The best way to describe it is a retainer that provides relief to my back teeth. At first it was uncomfortable to wear, but I am so thankful I gave it the chance it deserves. Within a week, I was already experiencing changes!

    I have had jaw pain, headaches, neck pain and popping in my jaw as long as I can remember. Sometimes it was unbearable! I saw a specialist 20+ years ago but not a lot of options at that time! I just learned to live with it and tried to block it out of my mind until I couldn't even touch my face without it hurting! My dentist referred me to Dr. Urbanek and it has been a blessing! Pain is almost completely gone after 2 months. He has a friendly staff that is so helpful!

    Before getting my mouthpiece from Dr. Urbanek I experienced tightness and pain in my jaw muscles. Now I rarely have jaw pain or tightness and if I do, it is not as severe. I am thankful that Dr. Urbanek created this device! Thankful for his friendly staff too!

    I've clenched for over 15 years and experienced every symptom from waking up with headaches to my jaw locking and feeling unstable. After using Dr. Urbanek's Splint for 9 weeks I finally have relief from most of my symptoms. The best part for me is waking up without a headache or sore jaw! Thanks Dr. Urbanek for all of your help.

    Before meeting Dr. Urbanek I'd suffered jaw pain and locking for years. In just the first 3 weeks I haven't felt any jaw pain at all. The headaches, dizziness, and other symptoms have all but disappeared as well. It's night and day from before receiving my device. I can't thank Dr. Urbanek and his great team enough!

    I had jaw pain, earaches, headaches and even tooth pain (especially in the mornings) for about 6 months before coming to see Dr. Urbanek. I tried different mouth guards with no success. Now after 3 weeks of wearing the splint he recommended for me, I have gotten relief from 90% of my pain! I would recommend anyone with these symptoms to call him today! Don't wait until it gets unbearable! — Carol M

    I had a smooth experience with very little pain. I enjoyed being able to eat lots of ice cream while I recovered. Thank you, Dr. Urbanek!

    After dealing with TMJ pain and many Dr's visits for decades I made a visit to Dr. Urbanek's office. Not only was his staff amazing, but his knowledge and device changed my life.... Yes, I may have talked funny for a few days... ha!!! The jaw pain, headaches, shoulder pain and tingling fingers diminished as I followed his instructions of wearing this small device!! It was crazy!!

    I have dealt with TMJ in varying degrees for many years. Last year (2014) the locking of my jaw became increasingly worse. My local dentist referred me to Dr. Urbanek in Cool Springs for evaluation. After talking to him, I realized I was having symptoms that I did not associate with my jaw problems such as shoulder, neck and ear pain. After being fitted with the Urbanek splint, I can say that my symptoms are reduced dramatically. I would recommend that anyone having TMJ not try to live with it.

    I have had TMJ issues since the 80s. In 1985 I had arthroscopic surgery which helped for several years. For the last few years I have had some problems. I was referred by a patient and a dentist that knew about Dr. urbanek. The medical device he made for me has elimanted my pain. Thank you Dr. Urbanek
