DC/TMD criteria was used to diagnose the patients, the occlusion time OT registered in the maximum intercuspation digitally by using T-Scan NOVUS device. Results: Non-significant differences between the age groups, disc displacement with reduction is the more prevalent disorder. Highly significant differences between the participant’s genders and the female demonstrated the higher percentage of the TMJ ID patients.
