Can braces move lower jaw forward I thought they only move teeth. They have given me rubber bands to wear.

Bone can be remodelled by the braces but at an early age. At later mature bone period jaw sugery is the option.
Ya it can be possible.
Hello Yes it happens. Jaws can be expanded with braces. Rubber will help you pull jaw in alignment.
