Temporomandibular Disorders: A Better Understanding
Main Article Content
Aim: Multiple studies have pinpointed specific causes of TMD symptoms. On the other hand, there is a lack of adequate statistics. The purpose of this research was to identify the factors (e.g., age, trauma history, parafunctional behaviors, etc.) that contribute to TMD.
Materials and methods: A total of 50 subjects took part in the research. The” TMD questionnaire served as a straightforward method for screening patients for the presence of temporomandibular dysfunction. A self-reported questionnaire was used to gather information about the participants' demographics and parafunctional behaviors. Independent t-tests, “Chi-square tests with a significance level of p 0.05” were used to examine the data.
Results: We counted 14 men and 36 females. In this sample, people had an age range from 18-30, 30-40, and 40-50 years. TMD was substantially linked with a history of Parafunctional habits, trauma, behavioral changes, and occlusal disturbances. On the other hand, there was not a significant difference between risk factors of TMD and factors like gender and age.
Conclusion: Parafunctional behaviors, including trauma, behavioral changes, and occlusal disturbances that come from the jaw joint (TMJ), are typical signs of TMD.
