Studies show that babies are more drawn and attracted to faces that are shorter. Orthodontic case studies has shown without exception that shorter, more forward growing faces look better and have straighter teeth. But what if we are already adults with a long face that have grown unfavorably as a child? Is it still possible to change the shape of our adult face without surgery?
My journey in facial remodeling process first began by learning about the fact that palate can be expanded in adults and coming upon the realization that the reason why I was never satisfied with my smile was that my palate was too narrow (understanding that my orthodontic work of 2 years actually made things worse by extraction of 4 bicuspids & retraction) , after more research I found that wider palate provided other benefits such as ability to breathe better (benefit I am experiencing now as my chronic left nostril congestion is being relieved) but what got me most interested was that expanding the palate was enhancing aesthetics of the face.
