Demographic data, symptoms for TMJ of the students will be recorded. Physical examination will be included range of motion of temporomandibular joint, right and left TMJ lateral range of motion, whether there is a gradual opening, during deflection and deviation during the opening and subluxation for palpation and measurements. Opening and closing clicks, crepitation and popping will be recorded during palpation. Deep palpation of the skin, masseter and temporal muscles will be determined, posture analysis will be recorded and dental interventions, missing teeth, orthodontic treatments and bruxism histories will be taken. An appropriate diagnosis will be determined for students who are found to have pathology as a result of all these examinations and information about this diagnosis will be provided.
