Information about the

Treatment costs

According to § 12 of the Social Security Code V, patients with statutory health insurance are only entitled to benefits that are "adequate, appropriate and economical; they must not exceed the scope of what is necessary. Benefits that are unnecessary or not cost effective cannot be claimed by insured patients, cannot be carried out by the insurance providers and cannot be approved by the (legal) health insurance" (Federal Ministry of Health).

Thus a 3D simulation, aesthetic corrections, minimally invasive surgical techniques, functional diagnostics, complex DVT diagnostics and planning, etc., are not covered.

We want to provide all our patients, regardless of their insured status, with the best possible treatment from a functional AND esthetic point of view. The intrinsic portion of such a treatment depends on the individual needs of our patients and the complexity of the case and requires a personal consultation. Please arrange an appointment with us at 06172 -17 10 60.

If you are not a private patient and if you do not have any additional insurance for the occupational treatment, you should take a min. 5.000 € own contribution count.

The most important questions at a glance

Why does maxillomandibular realignment yield better results than simply realigning one jawbone?

Aesthetics and function are equally important. If only one of the jaw bones is moved, the result is often a compromise between functionality and aesthetics. Maxillomandibular realignment offers more appealing and stable results with simultaneous functional optimization for nasal breathing, tongue function, etc. We therefore carry out complex 3D planning to achieve the best possible result with the least amount of hassle.

What do my Headaches/Jaw Problems/Tinnitus/Dizziness have to do with dysgnathia?

Teeth and jaw malformations lead to an excessive strain of the joints. Given the anatomic and functional connection between these two, problems such as the ones mentioned above can arise.

How long does surgery last?

Usually 1-2 hours. If the chin also needs correction, it can sometimes take more than 2 hours. You will be briefed in detail in a preliminary talk.

You can eat, drink and brush your teeth at any time. Once you leave the clinic, you are allowed to eat soft foods such as tortellini, lasagna and gnocchi.
