This article really was confusing me until I saw the pictures... silly me :p

Do our jaw angles really change that much?! :eek: I wonder if from the front the jaw narrows or widens with age?

Absolutely fascinating! I bet we will start to see jaw implants for aging become more popular!

p.s. I don't believe the "tranquilizer chair" will have a positive effect on aging! :p
