Abstract: Oral-maxillo-facial specialty aims at diagnosing and treating diseases, trauma, injury and congenital and acquired anomalies, of the masticatory apparatus, its annexes and associated structures. Multidisciplinary follow-up in postoperatively is necessary to prevent infections, aesthetic deformities and functional changes resulting from surgery and etiology for which it was nominated. Reporting the functional changes and intra-hospital therapeutic approach in the postoperative period of an oralmaxillo-facial service. We conducted a field survey, documentary, cross-sectional and quantitative with patients in post-operative oral-maxillo-facial surgery who were in the infirmary units in the General Hospital of Fortaleza (HGF). Data were collected from medical records of patients through a statement made by its own researchers. Data were statistically analyzed by the software Statistical Package for The Social Science (SPSS), version 20. We analyzed 26 medical records. Most patients were male, 14 (53,8%). The most prevalent age group was between 35 to 49 years old with 11 (42,3%) from the patients. The most frequent causes of oral-maxillo-facial disorders were the physical aggressions and falls, with eight (30,8%) patients each. The jaw was the most affected place, with nine (34,6%) cases. From the most affected movement limitations we find the mouth opening 9 (34,6%), as the most restricted movement. There was a predominance of male patients, aged between 35 and 49, affected by physical assaults and falls that led to the trauma. The presence of limitations was significant, making it clear the need for physiotherapy monitoring.
