Anyway to expand mandible?

Got braces a few years back but my bottom teeth still relapse within hours of taking my retainers off in the morning. Is there anyway to expand the mandible so I can have a more fuller/ less jammed lower arch?

It's not clear how but it's believed that expanding upper palate expand the lower palate as well.

Get a fixed retainer for the bottom teeth, it helps.
