Mewing / Chewing / Starecta [pics]

I first learned about mewing in June of 2018. I did chewing soft and falim gum through the summer. I started mewing in earnest, and chewing mastic gum everyday (more on my right side), beginning in September '18.

I bought a Starecta in mid-November - as my main motivation has been to strengthen / re-align jaw on the weaker developed side of my face; the right side. I try to wear it 16-22 hrs per day. I believe I've made some progress although it can be hard to gauge with photos depending on angle / lighting etc. Attached are pre- photos from March '16, long before I ever heard of mewing.

here are some (non-Starecta) youtube videos that point to the biomechanical soundness of the dental stint treatment:

...these particular videos address TMJ and tourettes/tics resulting from spinal and nerve compression due to lack of dental height in the back molars and pre molars and the postural problem created. The skull, sitting on the mandible, starts to sink because of gravity. Misaligned jaws can occur, not to mention a whole host of other problems depending on how poorly aligned the skull/spinal posture.

Any change I can see is minimal. Maybe a little more balanced jaw? It does look a little wider, probably from the gum. Either way, unless you have functional issues I wouldn't worry too much about this if I were you. The asymmetry you're talking about is minor and you're unlikely to fix it even if you mew perfectly. Unless you have a crossbite or something that I can't see in the pictures, it looks like you're a decently good looking guy.
