The clinical term for a receded lower jaw is “retrognathia” or “mandibular retrognathism.”
Retrognathia refers to the condition where the lower jaw (mandible) is positioned further back
than normal in relation to the upper jaw (maxilla) and other facial structures. This results in an
appearance of a recessed or retruded lower jaw, often leading to an underbite or malocclusion.
Common symptoms can include, malocclusion, facial asymmetry, breathing difficulties, speech
problems, TMJ pain, chewing and swallowing issues, headaches, facial muscle fatigue, and
various oral health problems.
