    Introduction: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint of synovial variety between mandible and temporal bone of cranium. It is a unique joint because it has dual function, the translatory, and the rotatory. It is also called as the ginglymoarthrodial type of joint. It has sliding movement between the bony surfaces along with hinge movements. Materials and Methods: A total of 67 articles were identified through the database searches. Articles which found to be review papers, summaries of other studies, or contained no data to inform the research questions. A total of 21 articles were included in the review. Discussion: The TMJ evolves from the reptiles and the amphibians. Form this review; it is evident that pelycosaurs were more concerned to be the ancestors of mammals. From this review, we come to know that in the mammalian jaw, the dentary bone increases in size and the post-dentary homes decrease inside and are less firmly attached to the dentary. Conclusion: The meticulous review of this study declares the evolution of TMJ occurs in a complex and long time process amongst reptiles and amphibians.
