  Abstract :

Determine the prevalence of Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) symptoms on dental students of different dentistry faculties of Ecuador, searching possible differences between genders. Methods: 400 students of 6 universities of Ecuador were previously selected to complete the questionnaire of signs and symptoms of DC/TMD, which was translated into Spanish and verified using the Cronbach Index with 78,96% of reliability. Results were analyzed using Chi-squared test, in SPSS V22 software with 5% of allowed mistake and 95% of trust. Results: Women were found to be the predominant gender exhibiting symptoms (71%) between 17-27 years old (p0,05). 65,5% of the students reported doing exercises sporadically, 28,5% reported allergies, 15,5% night bruxism, and 2,3% day bruxism, 5% told to have a traumatism, and just 4,75% of the students sought treatment. Conclusion: high occurrence of TMD was found in Ecuadorian dentistry students predominantly in females. Nonetheless, less than 5% seek attendance. Findings illustrate the propagation of TMD to the general population and highlight the need for guidance in specialized treatments.
