We especially concentrated on the common signs of DCS observed in teeth, and investigated the relationship between DCS and temporomandibular disorders.

Were investigated five symptoms of the Dental Compression Syndrome tooth wear, abfraction (noncarious lesions NCLs), micro-fractures, bone exostoses (tori) and periodontal lesions. Results: Data analysis showed that there was a statistically significant difference (p0.05) in the frequency of signs of Dental Compression Syndrome in the two groups. Conclusions: The signs of the Dental Compression Syndrome may be useful in diagnostic process for temporomandibular disorders.
