Corrective Jaw Surgery
Glendale, AZ

Corrective Jaw Surgery in Glendale provided by at

Disorders of jawbone often necessitate the experience of a highly skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Dr. Allard specializes in orthognathic jaw surgery to improve the function, aesthetics and health of your face, teeth and jaw. Contact our office today for your personalized consultation in Glendale, AZ.

Reasons for Jaw Surgery

There are a myriad of reasons one might decide to receive jaw surgery. Dr. Allard is pleased to treat the following and more:
•  Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)
•  Broken jaws from accidents
•  Jaws with issues that went untreated

Jaw Surgery for TMJ Treatment

Orthognathic surgery is performed to re-position the jaw. For some patients, the lower and upper jaw may be out of alignment, affecting appearance, speech, or chewing function. Jaw surgery may be recommended to improve the underlying facial structure, as part of an orthodontic treatment, or to address chronic jaw pain.

Jaw pain may be a sign of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD), which affects the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Patients who need TMJ treatment in Glendale, AZ turn to Dr. Allard for orthognathic surgery. Contact our office to schedule your consultation.

Other conditions that may necessitate jaw surgery include:
•  Bite issues, such as open bite
•  Speech difficulties, related to teeth and jaw
•  Misaligned jaw
•  Orthodontic treatment
•  Jaw line that appears to protrude or recede

Who Is a Candidate for Orthognathic Surgery for TMJ Treatment

For some patients, the upper or lower jaw may grow too large or too small, due to varying growth rates or a birth defect. This creates a misalignment that results in jaw pain and can lead to the various symptoms that make up disorders of the TMJ, such as difficulty hearing, chewing, or opening the jaw. To correct this condition and ensure the proper function and appearance of the jaw, it may be necessary to alter the position of the jaw surgically.

Facial Trauma

Jaw surgery may also be performed as part of a reconstructive treatment to correct facial trauma. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Allard is trained to rebuild the bone structure of the face and jaw for patients who have sustained injuries.

Orthodontic Treatment

If surgery is part of an orthodontic treatment, Dr. Allard will coordinate with your orthodontist, who may first align the teeth within the jaw using braces before scheduling surgery. Then, Dr. Allard will surgically re-position the upper and/or lower jaw to improve the function of your teeth as well as the shape of your face. Changing the position of your upper jaw can have a visually transformative effect on the cheeks, nose and mouth.
