This was a prospective cross-sectional study and was realized in ninety-one dentistry students (60 females, and 31 males) from the first to the last of the university year. All the participants self-complied a standardized questionnaire to collect the data consisting of the frequency information of either presence or absence of different oral parafunction and behavior.In addition, we have shown significant differences between the time-frequency of the present oral parafunction, such as dominating always in sleep in a position that puts pressure on the jaw, sometimes for hold teeth together with other than eating and hold tighten or tense muscles without clenching, bite, chew, or play with your tongue, cheeks or lips, use chewing-gum (often also), lean with your hand on the jaw, eating between means and rarely for the sustained talking yawning and telephone holding position and clench teeth together during waking hours. This was supported by the gender differences the significant differences between the males and females in the all-time frequency presence of oral parafunction. Moreover, these were significantly different in terms of studying years of participants as well. In summary, our study demonstrated differences in either presence or time-frequency of the investigated oral parafunction, with specific gender or year of studying differences.
