Numerous studies suggest a sexual predilection for temporomandibular disorders. The purpose of this article is to review and summarize patient-oriented and basic science studies that address the topic of a female predilection for temporomandibular disorders. The information presented provides oral and maxillofacial surgery practitioners with evidence-based data to suggest a female predilection for temporomandibular disorders based on biologic, genetic, and behavioral/psychosocial factors.
