“The science of training the muscles of the face is known as Orofacial Myology. The most essential part is for the tongue to be pushing up forcing the upper jaw up and forwards giving support to the eyes and moving the cheekbones forwards. Although the forces of these muscles are small and their duration of action short, over time, day in and day out the force of the tongue on the roof of your mouth adds up.
Increasing the muscle forces can help to give shape and definition to the jaw bone but risks making a face look a little masculine.”
New Book my Dr. John Mew, The cause and cure of Malocclusion
Currently I am in Mexico for work once I return to US I really want to purchase Dr. John Mew’s book, I read the free chapter offered at below link and was blown away by the level of insight and research that he has done. Many points I’ve known already but he gives even more convincing examples with pictures which is just so insightful.
Anyone involved with this process and want to understand what actually causes crooked teeth and how our oral postures determines our level of facial beauty I highly recommend at least read the free chapter offered from below link:
For anyone wondering, I’m not making any money from sharing these links, I simply want to share what I find most insightful and helpful to all who are interested in this topics.
