What causes a recessed mandible?
Orthotropic doctrine usually attributes a recessed maxilla + normal length/long maxilla to a low tongue posture. The palate narrows as a result, the maxilla becomes recessed, but the mandible grows forward as a result of the pressure of the tongue.
I am sure that there may in fact be a genetic component to mandibular length, perhaps somebody else here can speak to this with some data?
its about chewing, maxilla only effects eye area and cheekbones, the shape of your face and skull is your cheiwng muscles
In my opinion, the maxilla carries facial attractiveness the most. Cheekbones, hollow cheeks, better eye area, it even has a big role on the mandible, facial height, there are more reasons, but I cannot remember them.
It is a bit of a dumb argument, would you rather this or that. Recessed mandible with forward maxilla and vice versa. We all probably have seen both and comes down to which one you subconsciously think is more attractive. I don't know which one I like, which one is more preferable, and it all comes down to what you like at the end of day.
