Dimitar N. Kirov, Dimo S. Krastev

The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in a population of complete denture wearers. The study involved 104 patients wearers of complete dentures for 5 years at least, aging 54-76 years with mean age of 66,3. Each patient's general and denture history was taken, followed by an anamnestic and clinical examination for the presence or absence of signs and symptoms of TMD. Signs and symptoms of TMD were tabulated according to the percentage distribution among the male and female groups. The number of subjects who showed signs was 31.73%, subjects ? 21.57% males and 41.51% females. The most commonly seen symptoms were the joint sounds 11.54%, muscle tenderness 7.69%, joint tenderness 5.77%, deviation of mandible 3.85%, limitation on mouth opening 2.88%. In present study was observed a high prevalence of TMD signs and symptoms among patients wearing complete dentures.
