Do you want to reshape your face? Mewing is the latest internet craze. What is mewing you ask? It is a facial technique involving tongue placement, named after Dr. Mike Mew who is a British orthodontist. Mewing isn’t technically new although you have probably been seeing it all over YouTube and other websites.
Many orthodontists and other medical professionals, in fact, recommend proper tongue alignment. This allows a way to define the jaw, correct speech impediments and may even alleviate pain from jaw-related issues.
How to Reshape your face with Mewing
Although it is getting a lot of positive attention for reshaping your face, mewing has a lot of limitations. It may not work like what you might see on the internet. You are better off seeing a professional if you do have medical concerns about your mouth and jaw.
The main part of mewing is learning how to reposition your tongue into a different resting place. To properly mew, you must relax your tongue and make sure it’s entirely against the roof of your mouth, including the back of the tongue. This will likely take a lot of practice, since you’re likely used to relaxing your tongue away from the roof of the mouth without giving it a second thought. Over time, your muscles will remember how to place your tongue in the correct mewing position so it becomes second nature. In fact, it’s recommended that you mew all the time, even when drinking liquids to help reshape your face.
Mewing, Too Good to be True
So you may be thinking this is too good to be true, you may be right. The trick with mewing is that it can take years to see any results that will reshape your face. You can’t fix any major problem quickly. Those would obviously need surgery or an orthodontists assistant.
You can still try mewing, but be prepared to find little to no results. Until mewing is properly researched as an orthodontic solution, there’s no guarantee that it will work.
