What is mewing?
British orthodontist Mike Mew and his father developed a 'mewing' technique that is designed to expand the mouth palate.
The purpose of Mewing Before and After is to have the tongue pressed evenly on the palate over its entire area. The main targeted area is the posterior third. This puts pressure on the palate that helps in structural change. The structural changes in both soft tissue and bone occur with the passage of time.
Mewing Before and After is quite popular over the internet due to its effect on facial aesthetics. The specific movement helps realign your teeth and define your jawline.
The feedback from the people who do mewing is great. They report several benefits of mewing like:
The second chin is gone.
Improvement in nasal breathing.
Aligned teeth (in some cases).
Does mewing work?
Mewing is a new phenomenon and area of research for many orthodontists. However, there is not a lot of research confirming or refuting the effectiveness of mewing. The feedback of people on the internet confirms the effectiveness of mewing. There are thousands of before and after photos of people doing mewing. People using this technique for a longer time claims noticeable changes in the structure of their face. The most significant part of this technique is that the people doing mewing are very satisfied with the changes.

How to start mewing?
The easiest and effective approach to start mewing is to install a mobile mewing app. (available for iOS and Android)
Mewing app will help you develop the proper technique and track transformations in your face. The main feature of the mewing app is the reminder. It will keep you reminded regularly about mewing so that you recall to keep your tongue in the right position.
Step 1: Learn proper mewing exercise technique
The mewing app contains tutorials written and vetted by mewing experts. The tutorials are a great way to ensure that you're doing the exercise effectively.
Checklists will be provided that will guide you properly and helps you avoid mistakes. The aim of the checklist is to ensure your safety so that you don't hurt yourself while doing the exercises.
Step 2: Make it a habit
The mewing app allows you to set reminders so you don't forget about proper tongue position.
Start with reminders every 30 minutes before developing a mewing habit. Once you get familiar, decrease the frequency.
Step 3: Take pictures regularly to track your progress
This technique will be extremely useful for anyone doing facial exercises - exercising with JAWLINER, doing face yoga, or mewing (or all together). The app enables you to take consistent photos so that at a later stage you can compare them with the previous one. This will allow you to track your progress.
In addition, you can analyze the comparison with the free "before" and "after" photo comparison tool.
Tip: The sooner you get into the habit of mewing, the sooner you'll see results.
How long does it take to get visible results?
Mewing is dependent on the number of hours per day you spend exercising with the correct tongue position. The effectiveness of mewing depends on your age as well.
It is quite obvious that the older you get, the harder it is to affect the bones. However, soft tissue and cartilage can be influenced at any age.
Every person is different, but on average:
- People under 18 can see results in the first 2 months
- 18 to 25 years of age - at least 3-6 months
- After 25 years of age it takes 6 to 12 months to see results.
For quick results, you need to start mewing and most importantly, with the correct position of the tongue at all times. The more time you spend mewing, the faster you can notice a change. Creating a habit can be difficult at first, so it's worth using reminders.
The mewing app can send reminders up to every 10 minutes until you make mewing a habit.
Combine mewing with jaw workouts to fasten up the results
No doubt the mewing is an effective approach but it is not a cure-all. There are 42 individual facial muscles and 14 bones in the human face. You need to work on every facial muscle to look more attractive. Doing so requires a comprehensive approach to work them out.
To effectively improve the shape and highlight your jawline, you need to train your masseter muscles.
Masseters are developed in the process of chewing and it is essential to train them daily. Unless you are eating raw carrots and nuts daily, the only way left is JAWLINER. It will give you sufficient exercise to the masseters.
The best results can be achieved with an all-round approach:
Consistency is the key
As you might know that every exercise requires consistency. Any exercise is ineffective if it is not done regularly.
Mewing combined with jaw training is the quickest way to get a visible result. You should take these techniques as a part of your routine.
Forgetting is a flaw in human nature. Don't rely on your memory, but make a routine, set reminders and stick to it. That's the only way to get results in superfast time. Good luck!
