RE: Slack jaw = forward growth

Thanks for the reply. It’s getting there. Temporalis chewing has helped a lot. I would say maybe 1mm left until proper occlusion.

RE: You have heard of underbites. But have you heard about “middle-bites”?

Sort of same issue. I have to bite backwards in order for all teeth cusps to meet. My lower jaw wants to go forward. Do you have class 3 alignment?

RE: can someone have a dropped maxilla but does not have a dropped mandible?

Short face syndrome indeed leads to what OP is sort of getting at. Look at Quentin Tarantino So no, op. A dropped maxilla doesn’t exist by itself

RE: If proper tongue posture pushes the maxila upwards and forwards, what causes the mandible to follow it forwards?

When you chew the cusps of your teeth fit inside each other and this can shape how your bite fits.
