In brief: Yes
Tmj surgery can result in some temporary feeling of malocclusion.
This is usually do to some fluid inside of the joint space. With time, this will resolve and your bite will feel normal.

In brief: Inflammation
Arthroscopic surgery is minimally invasive, but it is still surgery.
Inflammation is a normal body response to the trauma of any surgery. The alignment of your teeth will be thrown off by the inflammation in the tm joints. May take 30-60 days or more to resolve. Your bite alignment should resolve as the inflammation decreases, but your dentist may need to make some adjustments.
