Understanding Mewing: Why Your Results May Differ

Mewing, a concept popularized by Dr. Mike Mew, has gained significant attention as a non-surgical technique to improve facial aesthetics.
It involves proper tongue posture, aligning the tongue against the roof of the mouth to influence jawline and facial structure.
Despite its popularity, many individuals report not seeing the expected results. This article delves into the potential reasons behind this discrepancy, backed by relevant studies where possible.

Unrealistic Expectations

The Reason Why You are not Seeing Mewing Results !

One primary reason for not observing mewing results is the set of unrealistic expectations. Mewing is not a quick-fix solution.

A study published in the 'Journal of Oral Rehabilitation' suggests that changes in facial structure require consistent effort over a considerable period, often years.

Expecting significant changes in a short timeframe can lead to disappointment.


Incorrect Technique

Another crucial factor is the incorrect application of the mewing technique. Proper mewing requires the entire tongue, including the back part, to press against the palate. A study in 'The Angle Orthodontist' journal highlights the importance of correct tongue posture for orthodontic stability. Incorrect mewing might not only be ineffective but could also lead to adverse effects.

Age Factor

Age plays a significant role in the effectiveness of mewing. Younger individuals, whose facial bones are still developing, are more likely to see noticeable changes.

A research article in 'American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics' indicates that bone remodeling is more efficient in younger individuals. Adults may experience slower and less pronounced results.


Individual Anatomical Differences

Individual anatomical differences can also influence mewing results. Genetics determine the basic structure of one’s face and jawline, as discussed in a study from the 'International Journal of Oral Science'.

While mewing can bring about changes, these are limited by one's genetic makeup.


Inconsistent Practice

Consistency is key when it comes to mewing. Inconsistent practice can significantly delay or even negate the potential benefits.

The 'European Journal of Orthodontics' outlines how consistent tongue posture is necessary to see any orthodontic change. Inconsistent mewing will likely yield little to no results.



In conclusion, while mewing has the potential to influence facial aesthetics positively, it is crucial to approach it with realistic expectations, correct techniques, and consistent practice.

Age and genetic factors also play significant roles in determining the extent of the results.

Understanding these factors can help set realistic goals and practices for those interested in exploring mewing as a method for facial structure enhancement.
