Introduction To Wide Jaw Treatments

A wide jaw in women can be seen as a masculine or unattractive trait, manifesting as a large, square lower jaw. This condition is caused by bone, muscle, or a mixture of the two. The most obvious cause is a large jaw bone, or mandible, which is usually congenital, but can develop through conditions such as acromegaly.

Other Factors to Consider

The size of the masseter muscle, used for chewing, can be congenital or acquired. As a muscle, it increases in size as it is exercised, whether that be through chewing gum, clenching teeth, or bruxism (excessive teeth grinding). This is an acquired wide jaw, whereas a congenital wide jaw is apparent throughout life, but can get worse with exercise.

At PHI Clinic, we use Botox to relax the overdeveloped muscles and reshape your face. However, this cannot be used to treat an enlarged mandible, as this problem is created by bone, not muscle. Where a wide jaw is a result of both an enlarged mandible and oversized masseter muscle, it can be partially treated using our methods.
