Malpositions, which are mainly limited to the area of the teeth, can usually be treated in the form of orthodontic therapy. If, on the other hand, the jaw itself is involved, only an operative, maxillofacial adjustment procedure can be considered.
With surgery, we achieve optimal results in terms of function and aesthetics. Shortly after the operation you will notice a positive change in facial aesthetics and you will be able to chew and breathe better, which will have a positive effect on your overall physical health.
After the operation, a close follow-up care of several months is carried out. For approx. six weeks after the operation you may only eat soft food. Pay attention to very good oral hygiene. You must avoid heavy physical exertion. Smoking is not encouraged in the first weeks after the operation. The orthodontic fine adjustment begins a few weeks after the operation. Approximately six months after the operation, the metal is removed.
Duration of operation: 1-4 hours
Anesthesia: General anesthesia
Ability to work: after 14-21 days
Wound healing: 14 days
Costs: for planning (model production/model simulation/splint production)
