Abstract

The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of temporomandibular disorders TMD and oral parafunctions, as well as their correlation with psychoemotional factors in Polish university students. The research was conducted in a group of 456 students . The examination form comprised of two parts: survey and clinical examination. The research diagnostic criteria for temporomandibular disorders RDC-TMD was used in order to assess TMD. Symptoms of TMD were observed in 246 54% students after clinical examination. The largest group involved students with disc displacement women: 132, 29%; men: 70, 15%. Women 164; 36% suffered more frequently than men 82; 18% from problems related to the stomatognathic system , described themselves as easily excitable and emotionally burdened, and reported symptoms as tightness of the facial and neck muscles . In 289 64% students intraoral symptoms concerning occlusal parafunctions were observed. In 404 89% examined students, nonocclusal parafunctions were recorded. A significant correlation between TMD and psychoemotional problems could be detected. TMD symptoms more often concern women. Emotional burden and excitability are factors predisposing muscular disorders.
