Orthognathic Surgery

In our treatment concept we also offer „Orthognathic Surgery“. We work together with professional maxillofacial surgeons in the AKH, in SMZ Ost and in Los Angeles, California.

In the orthognathic surgery concept, we mostly plan an advancement of the Mandible (short Mandible – Retrogenia), or the Mandible is made shorter (too big Mandible – Progenia). Some times we plan also the the Maxilla for surgery to advance an/or widen it.

Mostly, the orthognathic Surgery is used for improvement of the profile, if this is the chief complaint and the patient wishes a change.

Very seldom the orthognathic surgery is necessary for the orthodontic success.
