This study was performed to analyze the relationship between the chewing preference and condylar asymmetry in patients with temporomandibular disorder (TMD). A cross-sectional study was performed at Prosthodontic Clinic, Faculty of Dentistry, Universitas Indonesia using secondary data obtained from the medical records of 40 patients with TMD. Panoramic radiography tracing was performed for all patients included in the studyto evaluate condylar asymmetry using the Habets Asymmetry Index and the Kjellberg Symmetry Index. Measurements of condylar asymmetry were then correlated to the chewing preference, Helkimo's Index, and DC/TMD. The data showed no correlation between the chewing preference and condylar asymmetry in patients with TMD.
