Full Abstract: Temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) appears to be a significant problem affecting musicians. While the incidence of TMD symptoms for musicians is similar to that of the general population, these symptoms are activated and accentuated when performing or practicing. TMD appears to be significant in trumpet, trombone, tuba, violin, and viola musicians.
