ABSTRACT:Idiopathic condylar resorption of the temporomandibular joint is a challenge at the time of diagnosis and treatment. The aim of this review is to analyze the existing literature about the diagnostic methods, etiology, pathophysiology and treatment of idiopathic condylar resorption and its relationship with orthodontics. Databases such as Pub Med, Cochrane, Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar. The best method of diagnosis are images of CBCT to observe the head of the condyle in search of areas of resorption and interruptions of the bone cortex. There are 5 main etiological factors: age, gender, hormonal, systemic factors and orthognathic surgery, with systemic factors being the most relevant. In patients who do not want to be exposed to surgical treatment, conservative orthodontic treatment or a new protocol is recommended. The best treatment in patients who want to recover their aesthetics is orthognathic surgery combined with occlusal guard and pharmacotherapy to avoid more condylar resorption.
