Abstract

Female gender is a risk factor for TMDs. Females are more vulnerable to subjective and objective signs than males. During general dental examinations, females should be checked for TMD symptoms. PWOS manifest before MP. Moreover, mechanical derangements can cause myofacial pain. MP can mostly affect daily life, but PWOS tend to be prohibitive.
