Prognathism is a condition in which the jaw is misaligned. It’s also known as the Habsburg jaw or expanded chin. If you have a prognathic jaw, it seems to be crooked or projecting. Due to jaw malformation, a prognathic face may appear angry all of the time. This is a condition that parents can detect in their children at a young age.
There are three different forms of prognathism. The following are some of them:-
Maxillary Prognathism vs. Mandibular Prognathism
While all three kinds of prognathism result in a prognathic face, they affect distinct areas of the jaw. However, many people confuse maxillary prognathism with mandibular prognathism. Maxillary prognathism is a condition in which the upper jaw protrudes from the face. Mandibular prognathism, on the other hand, results in a prognathic lower jaw. This indicates that your lower or bottom jaw protrudes from your face.
Bimaxillary prognathism, on the other hand, causes the upper and lower jaws to protrude further than the face.
