Orthodontic surgery – is our strong suit

Die Munich Haut Couture
for dysgnathia correction

The expertise of a specialist is extremely important and particularly evident when the treatment becomes complex. As with dysgnathias. Dysgnathia are malformations of the teeth and jaw, where the upper and lower jaw must be repositioned together, to create an optimal overbite and profile normalization. Generally, an orthodontic pre-treatment takes place before the operation by a maxillofacial surgeon.

Your specialist for dysgnathia correction

In our Zahncouture we take all the necessary measurements and examinations, we advise you and we tailor your perfect smile. We show you the planned outcome using a simulation. We plan your treatment and coordinate closely with the oral and maxillofacial surgeon team. We carry out the orthodontic correction of misaligned teeth, which usually takes place before and after the operation. And during the treatment period, our team is at your side competently in all treatment stages. It is very important to have a good team on your side, since the treatment is complex and it might take up to three years. 

Treatments for dysgnathias are the haute couture of orthodontics. An art for which we have become specialists! Because the result is not only reflected in a magnificent smile and optimal chewing function, but also in a personally happy aesthetic that supports the entire profile of the person in their beauty.

What is dysgnathia?
Frequent examples with anomalies from practice

An undeveloped bite: Positive enlarged anterior tooth step (reverse overbite, frontal cross bite or head bite) can be characteristic of an overdeveloped lower jaw and / or an underdeveloped upper jaw. Skeletal class III, mandibular prognathy, maxillary retrognathy. A negative lip staircase is noticeable.

An overbite: Retrusive chin and a large gap between the upper and the lower lip. Those affected often suffer from pain in their lower jaw, head and neck. And there is also the aesthetic impact. 

An open bite: Lack of contact between the upper and lower teeth, which can be caused by a divergent inclination of the jaws (lower jaw to the posterior, upper jaw to the anterior). Skeletal open bite, apertognathy. Long face syndrome.

A deep bite: Pronounced overlapping of the upper teeth over the lower teeth, which can be caused by a converging inclination of the jaws (lower jaw anterior, upper jaw posterior). Skeletal deep bite, clausognathy. Reduced lower face height.

Facial asymmetry: As a sign of the different size and height of the right to the left lower jaw resp. also on the upper jaw side. Skeletal asymmetry, laterognathy. The displacement of the chin area and an oblique cleft lip are noticeable.
