Mewing is a simple technique that involves resting your entire tongue until the roof of your mouth until it becomes a resting position for your tongue any time your mouth is closed. It is a theory by Dr. Mark Mew, the owner of dental practice in London and focuses on the idea that having the correct tongue, jaw, and neck posture can improve a variety of conditions. These conditions include sleep apnea, jaw problems, and muscle pains in the mouth.

Dr. Mew discusses using mewing gum to complement mewing. Chewing this special gum may help you achieve a stronger masseter muscle and a more defined jawline. Dr. Mew highly recommends mastic gum because it offers various health benefits and maintains its durability better than most other gums.

If you do try mewing gum, begin by chewing it for about two to three hours each day. If your jaw begins to feel sore after a few days of chewing, take a break. Eventually, you’ll notice you’ll notice a stronger jawline and absolutely no soreness. Your face will be pushed forward and your jawline will be more defined.

Some of the best mastic gums include Greek Chios Mastic Gum, Solaray Mastic Gum Extract, Krinos Imported Mastic Gum, and Nutricology Mastic Gum. While you may also try a falim gum, understand that it doesn’t offer any of the health benefits as mastic gum. As with any type of oral health related question, our dental friends in Raleigh, NC state it is always best to contact a professional rather than self diagnose or simply read articles online.
