Interesting video about chewing gum and causing the face to widen and jaws to become more square
sadly in Asia the preference is towards more skinnier face these days…
For example take a look at this girl in Korea that got jaw contouring surgery done to make her square jaws slimmer
IMO, she looks so much hotter in the left pic but people in Korea might disagree
Some people ask me how long should you chew?
I don’t think you should over do it and chew for like 7 hours like this girl
She chewed for 7+ hours everyday and wore the joints out on her jaws causing her to need surgery to replace the joints
Take note of her wide jaws tho…
I generally remember to chew at least 1 hour a day, but some days I’m probably chew 2-4 hours
I am still chewing the Mastiha Gum (tree sap gum) its simply the best, hardest gum around
yes the widening of the face is occurring along with slow upswing of the maxilla and mandible causing the jawline to become more defined. Its a slow process but strengthening the muscle tone definitely helps not only make the jaws wider but ensure your jaws stay closed during the day & night.
The tongue posture is the next element that plays a role in causing facial changes for the better, all I can say is I still continue to practice it daily and I am slowly beginning to see the rise in frontal cheekbones
Frontal Cheekbone is the area in the blue circle. This area is affected by tongue posture
According to Mike Mew its one of the more difficult places to get changes, but it is also what cause facial beauty
Above is a girl with great facial development characterized by the volume in the frontal cheeks
Note the hollow cheeks on the above individuals.
My cheeks are hollowing as well, due to improvement in swallowing patterns. From disuse of cheek muscles during a swallow cause the cheek muscles to dystrophy & become “hollow”
During your swallow, your teeth should come together and the lips and cheeks should not be used at all, instead the tongue is doing all of the work, when you do it correctly, you will actually feel the tongue doing a lot more “work” or motion than before
if you consider that tongue thrusters causes their front teeth to separate and become an open bite, just by the force of the tongue momentarily thrusting at the teeth during a swallow, then its logical to think that when the tongue learns to properly press on the maxilla during a swallow then that shift also should have beneficial effect on the bones / maxilla.
