Swathi Shammi, Hemavathy Muralidoss, Pradeep.D.

Abstract
The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of temporomandibular disorders among Chennai population and its severity. This study was carried out between June 2018 to December 2018 and the study sample consisted of 475 patients who visited the Saveetha Dental College OPD. The questionnaire developed by Fonseca was used to evaluate the degree of TMD in the participants. A total of 475 patients participated in the study of which 223 were females, 252 were males. The age distribution was between 15 70 years. Regarding TMD alone, 25% of the subjects had no disorder or some degree of disorder, 62% had mild TMD, 11% moderate and 2% severe TMD.In the present study, over 50% of the population had TMD. Women (81.6%) were the more affected than men (68.65%). Considering only severe TMD, women were more affected than men. The high prevalence of TMD in women may be related to their different physiological characteristics, such as regular hormonal variations, muscle structures and different characteristics of the connective tissue.

Key words: Temporomandibular disorders, severity, prevalence.
