I'm mewing and having good results. But I wonder if I'm doing it right.  

New Member

I've been mewing for almost two years, with very good results. My TMJ is pretty much gone. My face looks better.

But I wonder if I'm doing it right.

The roof of my mouth is much "deeper" now. When brushing it it was shocking how much the mewing has pushed it up. Is there a risk of pushing it up too much?

Also, I push vertically against my teeth with my tongue in order to expand my palate. It seems to work, and my face feels good after I do it. Again: is there a risk of expanding the palate too much doing this? Or does the ideal palate width indeed correspond to how far you can push it with your tongue?

What do you mean by "deeper?" As I understand it, proper Mewing should make the palate wider but less vaulted. I don't think there is any risk of expanding the palate too much with tongue pressure alone.

Well as part of answering your question, I’ll ask you some questions to which your responses might reveal something for other members to pick up on!

One thing i am struggling with is the tongue sweep-micro swallow side of things. 

Hows your tongue sweep and whatnot? Is your mewing more focused on power-mewing by actively pressing up?

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
