In brief: See below

Macrognathia refers to the condition of abnormally large jaws.
It is also called as 'megagnathia'. Treatment is surgical. Osteotomies may be done in case of maxillary macrognathia. Mandibular macrognathia is generally managed by resection of a portion of the mandible followed by orthodontic treatment.
