Combined Orthodontic Treatment To Improve Facial Aesthetics

A combination treatment is necessary if it is not possible to achieve a satisfactory correction of the tooth and jaw misalignment with orthodontic treatment – i.e. only with braces. This can be the case if, for example, the lower jaw is too large or the upper jaw is too small, the mid-face is underdeveloped or the chin is too prominent.

What types of faces are there?

In addition to their good function, orthodontic treatments always aim for a harmonious face profile and a beautiful smile. There are three basic types of face:

Brachiofacial face type

Brachiofacial face types: have a broad face and a low face height and tend to a skeletal deep bite. The growth pattern is horizontal, which means that the lower jaw largely grows upwards during the growth phase. The brachiofacial face types have rather strong chewing muscles. Distribution in the population: approx. 12.5% ​​and approx. 2.5% extremely strong brachiofacial.

Mesofacial Face Type

 

Mesofacial face type

Mesofacial face types are the most widespread, average face types and lie between the brachiofacial and the dolicofacial face type. Distribution in the population: approx. 70%.

Dolicofacial face type

Dolicofacial face types have a narrow face and a high face height and tend to have a skeletal open bite. The growth pattern is vertical, i.e. the lower jaw largely grows backwards and downwards during the growth phase. The dolicofacial face types have rather weak chewing muscles. Distribution in the population: approx. 12.5% ​​and approx. 2.5% extremely strong dolicofacial.

Combination orthodontic and jaw surgery: treatment to improve facial aesthetics. As the name suggests, the combination treatment consists of an orthodontic and an orthodontic treatment. A combination treatment is necessary if it is not possible to achieve a satisfactory correction of the tooth and jaw misalignment with orthodontic treatment – i.e. only with braces. This can be the case if, for example, the lower jaw is too large or the upper jaw is too small, the midface underdeveloped or the chin appears too prominent.

  • Detailed investigation and advice
  • Visualize changes in your profile by simulating orthodontic profile improvement
  • Visualize changes in tooth position by simulating orthodontic tooth position and bite improvement
  • Functional preparation of your muscles for the new jaw position
  • Orthodontic pretreatment with the invisalign® method: Instead of the usual visible, fixed multiband multibracket appliances, teeth are usually corrected with the invisalign® method – the unique invisible splint system.
