Objective: To determine  the prevalence of patients with asymmetric mandible based on age, gender, and severity that examined  using CBCT section of the Dental and Oral Hospital of Hasanuddin University.

Material and Methods: Secondary data from dental records (CBCT data) of patients at Dental and Maxillofacial Department in Dental and Oral Hospital of Hasanuddin University from January 2014 - March 2016 were examined. The data collected to calculate the prevalence of asymmetric mandible from CBCT image and then presented in tabular form.

Results: From this research  it is found  that the age group 36-50 years was the top ranked in prevalence of asymmetric mandible, and there is no significant difference between the number of male and female patients.

Conclusion: Asymmetric mandible caused by pathological factors have the highest incident
