Can you develop adult jaws and arches?

Adult jawbones have the ability for slight modification, according to the rules of epigenetics discussed in the Principles, as well as Wolff’s law, which states that bones and joints subjected to constant low-grade forces will undergo dimensional changes. Orthodontics and jaw orthopedics in adults works, but is limited. There is slight modification of the main jawbones, however most of the significant changes arise from remodeling of the “alveolar” bone, or that portion of the bone which surrounds the teeth.
