The aim of this study is to determine the understanding regarding the relationship between malocclusion and TMJ problems among dental students. The purpose of this study is to create awareness and determine the understanding of the relationship between malocclusion and TMJ problems among dental students. This study was conducted based on a questionnaire which consists of 10 questions through a web-linked application called Survey Monkey. A convenient sample size of 100 consecutive dental students who are currently practicing in Chennai participated in the study. As an overall result, most of the participants are aware of the relationship between malocclusion and TMJ problems. As a conclusion, awareness on the relationship between malocclusion and TMJ problems among dental students in Chennai is adequate but certain knowledge has to be brushed up among them for a higher level. Furthermore, they need to be trained on these grounds to help them treat their patients with more consent and awareness.

According to some literature data, special attention in the diagnosis of dysfunction
of the temporomandibular joint is given to a detailed analysis of complaints, the collection of
anamnesis and data of the main research methods characterizing the dental status of profile
patients in the form of structural algorithms using databases focused on this pathology [10,
12, 16, 25, 35, 37, 43], as well as generalized clinical methods for the diagnosis of functional
disorders of the dentoalveolar system, taking into account modern scientific views [6, 7, 8, 18,
21].

Patients with ankylosis, post-traumatic condylar destruction, advanced degenerative disease and multi-operated patients are those who require joint replacement. Rise in development of biocompatible materials, improved designs for patient-fitted prostheses have been made with emerging advances. These devices can be used to treat internal derangement cases with history of multiple surgical and nonsurgical treatment failures, as well as restoring form and function following the removal of failed Vitek Proplast-Teflon containing temporomandibular joint implants. This paper will provide an insight related to treatment modality in debilitated, functionless temporomandibular joint (TMJ) patients.
