Brief Summary:
The study is aimed to investigate if chewing side preference (CSP) can be used as another indicator of hemispheric laterality in healthy adults. Healthy volunteers with no oral/dental problems with Angle I occlusion relationship and without any missing teeth will be included in the study. The CSP will be determined with the visual analog scale (VAS), which is the highly reliable method. Laterality test will be used to determine the preferred side for hands, feet, ears and eyes.

Detailed Description:
Lateral preference is important to determine hemispheric laterality, which is usually diagnosed by hand and other sidedness, including footedness, eyedness and earedness. study is aimed to investigate if chewing side preference (CSP) can be used as another indicator of hemispheric laterality in healthy adults. Healthy volunteers with no oral/dental problems with Angle I occlusion relationship and without any missing teeth will be included in the study. The CSP will be determined with the visual analog scale (VAS), which is the highly reliable method. Laterality test will be used to determine the preferred side for hands, feet, ears and eyes.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Healthy volunteers
Seventy-five healthy volunteers with no oral/dental problems with Angle I occlusion relationship and without any missing teeth will be included in the study. Evaluation of chewing side preference and laterality will be performed.
Other: Evaluation of chewing side preference
The visual analog scale (VAS) is used. The individual will be asked to make 1 mark on a 10-cm line with " always left" and "always right" at either end and with " no preference" in the middle.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Chewing side [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Evaluation of chewing side preference will be performed with VAS.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Laterality [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Evaluation of laterality will be performed with Laterality test
