Objective: To report clinical cases of patients treated with orthognathic surgery while trying to evaluate not only their characteristics, but also the procedures performed. Methods: Seventeen patients who underwent orthognathic surgery were assessed in terms of age, sex, facial pattern, dental health, dentofacial deformity, surgical procedure and the occurrence of complications. Results: The most commonly reported facial pattern was Type III (64.7%). Anteroposterior (AP) maxillary deficiency (58.8%) and AP mandibular excess (47%) were the most commonly diagnosed deformities. The most frequently performed surgical procedures were maxillary advancement (76.4%), mandibular setback (52.9%) and impaction of the maxilla (47%). Complications occurred in 35.2% of the sample, with permanent paresthesia and nasal septal deviation being the most common. Conclusion: This study reveals a direct relationship between the dentofacial deformities diagnosed and surgical procedures performed for treatment.
