Abstract

Temporomandibular disorders may have an impact on quality of life. No studies have been done to analyze the relationship between temporomandibular disorders and quality of life in particular by using the Oral Health Impact Profile-Temporomandibular Disorder Indonesia (OHIP-TMD-ID) and the Diagnostic Index for Temporomandibular Disorder (ID-TMD) in Indonesia. The aim of this study is to analyze the relationship between temporomandibular disorders and quality of life, temporomandibular disorders and socio demographic factors (age, gender, education level, and economic level), and quality of life and socio demographic factors (age, gender, education level, and economic level). Across-sectional study was conducted on 115 subjects, ages 20-40 years, who were patients at the Integration Clinic of Rumah Sakit Gigi Mulut Fakultas Kedokteran Gigi Universitas Indonesia. Subjects' personal data were obtained and interviews for the ID-TMD questionnaire and the OHIP-TMD-ID questionnaire were conducted. The Mann-Whitney test showed significant differences between temporomandibular disorders and quality of life. There were no significant differences between quality of life and socio demographic factors (age, gender, education level, and economic level). The chi-square test also showed no significant differences between temporomandibular disorders and socio demographic factors. Temporomandibular disorder patients suffered from impaired orofacial pain-related quality of life.
