Did you know that nearly 50% of all women suffer from unexplained headaches, migraines, earaches, neck pain, jaw pain, vertigo or shoulder/arm pain? Throughout the course of my practice, I consistently had at least one patient a week asking if there is anything I can do to alleviate these pains, and a few years of having these patients sleep in an acrylic night guard (the only treatment most dentists use for jaw pain) with reports of no relief of their symptoms, I started to do some research. Fortunately, I stumbled across Dr. Tony Urbanek, an Oral Surgeon in Nashville, whose main focus is alleviating jaw joint symptoms such as TMJ pain and migraines.

Years ago, Dr. Urbanek built his practice around TMJ surgeries—only to discover the relief was often only temporary. After many years of frustration, he decided conduct his own research with his patients and developed a much more effective and longer lasting solution. In the last three years, Dr. Urbanek has treated thousands of migraine/TMJ pain patients with a small, nonvisible acrylic splint that is worn for a short period of time and has been over 98% successful!

I was skeptical when I heard there was a non-surgical, permanent solution for this problem many of our patients face daily so I went to meet Dr. Urbanek directly. After spending hours picking Dr. Urbanek’s brain, and subsequently being mentored and educated by him directly, I slowly begin implementing the Urbanek splint in my practice at Singing River Dentistry. To my surprise, patient after patient had a 100% alleviation of all their symptoms after a few short months. I was ecstatic to be a part of providing such a simple solution to a problem that a large number of my patients had faced for most of their lives!

Last year, Singing River Dentistry invited Dr. Urbanek to The Shoals to train every doctor in our practice, allowing us to help as many sufferers of jaw joint pain as possible. If you or someone you know suffers from headaches, migraines, earaches, neck pain, jaw pain, vertigo or shoulder/arm pain, send them our way to help get start living a headache-free, pain-free life by utilizing the small and effective Urbanek acrylic splint.
