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.

For research and dissemination I will be collecting in this community the adult expansion, cranial adjustment, NCR, and face-pulling results. I implore our community users to keep accurate records for themselves and others; these can include dental/palate impressions, before/after pictures, X-Rays and 3D scans.

The purpose of this collection is for use as evidence for theories proposed here. This collection will only be re-posted on this community and will not be submitted anywhere else.

For those looking into expansion and movement in the near future, please consider keeping records for your own sake and for others. Pictures of dental impressions alone can be very helpful.

If you have successfully completed any expansion/movement of facial bones and have any of the above records, please submit them to the community with your personal story of what you did and what the results were (use multiple posts if necessary). Palate expansion, Maxilla movement up and forward, development of the orbital rims, zygomatic, and mandible / jawline are of specific interest. Please ensure that pictures are taken with the same angle, distance, and lighting: This will allow the community to see sharper jawline, higher cheekbones, decrease in dark circles under eyes, changes in nose shape, a more oval face, and improved symmetry.

If you wish to share anonymously, please send me a personal message and we will arrange an anonymous transfer. If you do not have any records to share,  your personal experience is also very valuable. Please tell us what you have done and what the results were.

Your input could help many, many people
