when your teeth gets pulled back by braces where does the bone go to?
and is your skull size ruled by your genetics or do people have bigger heads because of better body and tongue posture?
If you are refering to retractive orthodontics that close extracted tooth gaps, that bone is resorbed.
Bone resorption is resorption of bone tissue, that is, the process by which osteoclasts break down the tissue in bones and release the minerals, resulting in a transfer of calcium from bone tissue to the blood. The osteoclasts are multi-nucleated cells that contain numerous mitochondria and lysosomes. Wikipedia
I don't think skullsize and thickness is related to posture but genetics and nutrition?
Taller people tend to have thicker and larger skulls by circumference but maybe there large-skulled short folk.
Sure, mouthbreathing can be very detrimental to the splanchocranium by having a smaller mandible compared to what you should've had.
I don't really know what part correct posture and nutrition have in skull size, honestly.
