So I started mewing about 2-3 years ago, only recently have I noticed that the appearance change isn't what I hoped it would be. I came to realize I possibly gave myself a higher arched palate. Noticed that my soft/middle palate is steep compared to the front. The ridge behind the teeth feels more pronounced and the gradient is noticeable. Anyways, I realize my mewing possibly pushed just the middle of my palate up and not really up and forward creating the maxilla upswing I was trying to achieve. I also realized my posture is kind of bad. Is there still hope for me? My face now just looks more round, feel like my jaw actually recessed a bit and my maxilla down sung slightly. Creating a bloated looking more wide face rather than wide and swung up and forward. Really need tips. I've read through some of the forums on high arches and it seems that better posture and a different mewing approach is required to achieve gains. Mewing more towards the front and focusing pressure near the incisive papilla is what I am going to try to do instead of just trying to jam my posterior 3rd up. I am currently 18 years old, so possibly there is still time to fix this to a noticeable extent. Taking photos from a distance just makes my face look really bloated, with barely any definition, which is really disappointing considering how long I've been trying to mew for.
Do you engage intraoral vacuum? I believe this can be corrected with focus on the pre-maxilla to upswing the jaw
Once I started mewing this way my facial structure improved. Same thing happened to me I did tongue chewing and vaulted my palate which made my eyea look a bit weird.
Hey man, what a coincidence.
I entered this website hoping to find some info on the exact same issue. And I found your post.
The same happened to me.
My palate has now a big hole, is very deep, but in the front the ridge goes downward.
So it's basically impossible to exert pressure on the front for me anymore.
This is the reason why I am very scared. I am very scared that that part could go down over time and give me a longer nose.
May I ask you (since you've been doing 2 years more than me) if that happened to you?
I'm very scared and if you could answer it would mean a lot.
