Getting that forward growth  

New Member

Hello people. I have found Mike Mew approximately 3 months ago and started mewing with some other correction methods. 

My bad facial growth story started as I developed a strong hey fever when I was about 12 years old. Since then, I had been a chronic mouth breather which resulted in a poor facial development. Because of crooked teeth, I was sent to an orthodontist by my dentist. First I got a Hawley retainer with a frontal screw to push out my front incisors (which didn't help because it was my maxilla that was rotated and not my incisors) and later I got normal braces which were fatal for me. The orthodontist concentrated completely on straight teeth and not on facial and skeletal growth. The result was a very narrow maxilla, long midface, bad mandibular angle, chronic mouth breathing and a recessed maxilla. I was extremely unconfident because of my looks. I hated my smile and my facial development. As I found Mike Mew, however, I knew that I can improve it. 

My allergies went away due to dietary changes and so did my stuffed nose. I could finally breathe through my nose which allowed for correct tongue posture. 

Here is my current routine: 

- Palatal expander, expansion 1 mm per week 

- Chewing mastic gum for at least 1 hour a day

- correct tongue posture with stronger force applied to the maxilla 

- 30 min of face pulling with a mask 

- Tongue pushes (against the maxilla) 


So far over the course of 2 months, I have improved nose breathing, 2 mm of maxillary expansion, more prominent zygos, and a slightly improved maxillary angle. I hope that the results are indeed exponentially and that with time the progress will accelerate. I will post some progress pics soon.
