Background: The functional jaw orthopedics is utilized in improving jaw relationships and temporomandibular joint. Objective: To identify the effect of California Bionator in patients with temporomandibular disorders. Methods: An experimental design study was performed in 32 patients between 15 and 59 years from the North area of Sancti Spíritus, from September 2011 to March 2014, who attended the Department of Prosthodontics of the Provincial Dental Clinic of Sancti Spíritus. Empirical, statistical and mathematical methods were used. Results: 56.2 % of patients with temporomandibular disorders were found in the age of 24 to 32 years, and 75.0 % were female. Prematurities with 78.1 % and interferences in the balancing side with 46.8 % were the most represented occlusal interferences. Among signs and symptoms, the most representative were: joint noise (71.8 %), stiffness (68.7 %) and muscle fatigue (65.6 %). After six months of using the device six patients eradicated the disorder and the others went to inferior cathegories. In the assessment year, the disorder was eliminated in 34.3 % of patients. Conclusions: The results obtained in the treatment outcome with California Bionator demonstrate the favorable change in the majority of patients with temporomandibular disorders, expressed in the change of severe to asymptomatic degree.
