Mike & John Mew talked at a conference in Vancouver in November 2016. Mike personally sent these videos to me to post on this site before they became public. Very good talks about the following topics:
- Mike Mew’s new before & after pictures of adult patients getting forward maxilla growth with headgear
- Mike Mew introduces hybrid appliance of stage 3 biobloc which can also do expansion, it trains to keep the mouth shut while making the mouth bigger over time which effectively accomplishes forward maxilla growth overtime. I have been wearing the regular stage 3 biobloc now for over 8 months now because I already had the expansion and the results are becoming quite obvious. I personally feel at this time that the stage 3 is irreplaceable part of any treatment.
- Mike Mew reviews Dr. Moon’s bone anchorage methods for extra leverage on moving facial structure
- orthotropics and how it achieves better results of forward facial growth by John Mew, very strong case studies and clear concise superb presentation
- “get the mouth bigger, then train them to keep their mouth shut” -John Mew
The tropic premise is so simple, correct oral posture and achieve astounding results, yet it is so difficult to achieve as posture is very challenging to correct / change. But with appliances like the stage 3, & dedication it is possible.
