The purpose of this study was to document the relationship between dentofacial deformities (DD) and temporomandibular joint dysfunction (DTM), as well the effects of orthognathic surgery in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) after surgery. There are different skeletal patterns with a high probability of developing signs and symptoms of DTM before surgery or that these are appear after surgery. We document the different types of surgeries (such as Lefort I, SSRO, IVRO) and its bindings intraosseous (rigid and semirigid) that are currently used to treat these deformities dentofacial and its effects on the TMJ.  (Rev Esp Ortod. 2011;41(3):133-142)
