Abstract

The objective of the study was to evaluate the relationship between self-reported bruxism and torus mandibularis in patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD). The subjects of the study were 375 patients diagnosed with TMD and 433 control patients at Chosun University Dental Hospital from November 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. Self-reported bruxism and torus mandibularis in each group were investigated and compared statistically. Female in sex distribution and prevalence of self-reported bruxism and torus mandibularis was more common in TMD group than in control group (p<0.05). Bruxism and torus mandibularis might be useful as indicators of increased risk of TMD.
