We can correct an undershot bite of the lower bone by moving your lower jaw forward. By moving your lower jaw bone backward, we can correct a prominent jaw bone. In special cases the modification of your upper jaw bone would be preferred.

This procedure will be undertaken completely from the inside of your mouth.


Like all of our surgical operations, the modification of your lower jaw bone will be undertaken in our clinic here in Munich, on Cuvilliésstraße.


The modification of your lower jaw bone should be done under general anaesthesia.

Post Operation

Generally, this operation is well tolerated.

After the operation you will receive cool compresses from us to aid the healing process.

Generally, swelling in the cheeks goes down within only a few days. Your doctor will need to sign you off of work for two weeks, in which you will be required to stay at home to relax and thus aid recovery.

For your convenience, we are not only contactable during our clinic’s open hours, but are also reachable on the go, 24 hours a day.

Your stitches will be removed one week after your operation.
