Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) is a group of conditions that cause abnormal, incomplete or impaired functions of the temporomandibular joint. Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the temporomandibular disorders (TMD) prevalence in dental students. Study Design: A Cross-Sectional Study. Place and Duration: In the Faisalabad Medical University, Faisalabad for one year duration from March 2019 to March 2020. Methods: This study includes the TMD questionnaire and scale, which includes convenient examples of 400 undergraduate of both sexes. A descriptive statistical analysis was carried out. The experimental sample shows the results of 400 students, 110 in TMD groups and 290 in the control group. Results: Stress was very important and was the main cause of TMD. BDS IV year students were more stressed (56.25%). The most common sounds were clicking sound (8.8%), and the affected muscle was a lateral pterygoid (27%) and occurred in women. Therefore, TMDs are not self-limiting and do not dissolve over time. They can increase over time as stress levels increase. Conclusion: The study found that the incidence of temporomandibular disorders was 23.6% in 400 dentist populations. Stress was the most important value caused by the temporomandibular disorder. TMJ sound was significantly correlated with symptoms of TMJ dysfunction. Key words: Muscles, helkimo index, temporomandibular joint, temporomandibular disorder.
