Has anyone with a torus palatinus expanded their palate without an appliance?

I stopped trying to mew because I'm pretty sure I can't expand my palate to actually apply the correct force vectors to grow my maxilla forward 🙁 I think I was previously just rotating it one way or the other.

Is mewing possible for those of us with the cursed fused transverse palatine suture?

 

Also! I think everyone on this forum would find this interesting:  https://www.researchgate.net/publication/47631835_On_the_Etiology_and_Significance_of_Palatal_and_Mandibular_Tori

There's only one way to find out I guess, try it. Good luck!

I was encouraged by your previous thread reporting a reduction in your torus palatinus (  https://the-great-work.org/community/main-forum/as-my-face-has-improved-i-can-feel-and-see-that-my-torus-palatinus-has-decreased/ ), so I'm sorry to hear that you now don't think it has changed. I submitted a question to Dr. Mew on this topic in the last Q/A.

Does a torus palatinus and/or buccal exostoses have any impact on adult palate expansion? Is it still possible to separate the midpalatal suture with a torus palatinus? Will palate expansion reduce the prominence of either a torus palatinus or buccal exostoses?

I've increased my intermolar width by 4mm using a removable palate expander. In a recent summary of my progress, I reported little change in the appearance of the torus itself but maybe less prominence because the rest of the roof of my mouth might have flattened out a little closer to the level of the torus.

I think my torus palatinus looks about the same, but maybe the roof of my mouth around the torus has flattened out slightly closer to its level.

You've managed rotation? See that's what I want. My palate width is fine in and of itself. What besides mewing do you do? I know that's off topic but pm me if you want

I'm trying to do that right now. I'll let you know how it goes.
