Abstract

The objective of study is to find prevalence of temporomandibular joint pain due to stress in undergraduate university students. Methods: Sample of 253 participants were selected by non-probability convenient sampling technique. Then participants were required to sign on consent form first then Fonseca questionnaire, and PSS was given to them. The patients were interviewed, examined, diagnosed, and rated. Results: This study was conducted on 253 undergraduate university students .FQ and PSS questionnaires were given to them.87  males (34.4%) and 166 females (65.6%).37.5% partipants with moderate stress showed severe TMJ pain.5.9% cases were reported with mild pain. The percentage of temporomandibular joint pain is calculated to be 58.1% percent in university students. Conclusion(s): Hence, it has been concluded that stress is a factor that cause TMJ pain in undergraduate university students. This study shows that stress and TMJ pain have direct positive and strong corelation between them. Stress not only cause TMJ pain but it can also increase the severity of the pain. .The percentage of temporomandibular joint pain is calculated to be 58.1% percent in university students. The result concludes that the prevalence of temporomandibular joint pain among students of university is high.
