Looking for Advice (MSE?)

Hi all, looking for some advice from knowledgeable folks.

The gist of the situation:

  • 27m
  • Narrow maxilla (30mm)
  • Hard to nose breathe (sucks for sports)
  • Hard to speak properly
  • Bad midface support
  • Always bags under eyes despite good sleep/lifestyle
  • Obvious malocclusion, hard to even be in resting position
  • Bad aesthetics + poor smile + general asymmetry in maxilla

     

  • No cheekbones

    20220613 013323
    20220613 014913
    20220613 011218

     

Is there anything at this point that can help me in terms of both functional and aesthetic gains?

Is MSE worth it in my case? Is it something that can impact things significantly?

Many thanks for any advice.

I’m glad I did it. Looks like you’d benefit to me. If your suture successfully split, you’d get a wider smile and more tongue space, with the risk of exacerbating asymmetries. Cheekbone and midface support changes are subtle.

It also appears that your lower posterior teeth are lingually inclined (i.e. tilt in toward the tongue to meet your narrow upper arch). So you'd be able to expand your uppers far and still reestablish occlusion by uprighting the lowers. This is often the factor limiting expansion potential.

If it's impacting your nasal breathing and speech as you say, consider myofunctional therapy after expansion. They might advise a functional frenectomy to improve tongue mobility.
