Abstract: 

Background: Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are a collective term given to a number of clinical problems that involve the masticatory musculature, the temporomandibular joints and associated structures, or both.Aim: to assess various TMJ dysfunction signs among the partially edentulous patients.
Methodology: Temporomandibular disorders investigation was performed on 300 partially edentulous individuals, (162 females and 138 males) aged between 25-60 years, the study conducted by clinical examination of temporomandibular joint and associated structure.
Result: Among 300 subjects; 94 (31.33%) patient suffer from one or more signs of TMDs. Female showed more TMJ dysfunction signs. Clicking were most common sign (62.7%), TMJ pain was (54.2%), reduced mouth opening was (27.6%), masticatory muscle pain (17%), and mandibular deviation on mouth opening was (14.89%) of patients.
Conclusion: There is a relation between TMJ dysfunction and partial edentulism, females had a higher prevalence of TMJ dysfunction signs than males, as well as the span and time of edentulousness.
