Introduction: The only possibility of correcting true dentofacial deformities was the combination of orthodontics with surgery, and the importance of the combined effort of these two distinct areas in approaching the dentofacial disharmony of patients with skeletal problems was recognized.
Objective: This study aimed to review the literature on Orthognathic Surgery involving mandible, maxilla, mento and associations.
Methods: Experimental and clinical studies were included (case reports, retrospective, prospective and randomized trials) with qualitative and/or quantitative analysis. The mesh terms were included Buco-maxillo surgery, mandible surgery, orthognathic surgery, malocclusion, dentofacial deformities.
Conclusion: It was concluded that there was an increase in orthognathic surgery cases in the last years, and with homogeneous samples between the masculine and feminine genres, and the advances in maxillary surgery corresponded to the greater number of surgical treatments.
