The purpose of this Special Issue is to promote knowledge and the correlation between the temporomandibular joint and all of the postural dysfunctions or those affecting the spine. Many occlusal correlations in recent years have been found to be responsible for the alterations affecting the posture of our patients, or for the musculoskeletal pain in other districts. Inter-specific orthopedic–orthodontic treatment, in some cases, has been proven to be effective in resolving these situations. Everything related to functional dental orthopedic therapy, TMJ surgical therapy, and more clinical or other information about these correlations, is the subject of the Special Issue.
