Can clenching your teeth make your jaw permanently bigger?!

Question: Can clenching your teeth make your jaw permanently bigger.?
It's like a workout for your jaw muscles when you clench your teeth. If you did pushups every day, you'd get bigger muscles from that. This is basically the same sort of thing but for your face. I'm not saying that your jaw will be huge or anything, but you might notice it grows slightly. (I'm also not recommending that anyone try to clench in an effort to make their jaw bigger, it can cause headaches and dental problems!)Health Question & Answer
