Mewing – the new exercise for the best facial form & function

“Mewing” has taken the social media by storm. The exercises were devised by Professor John Mew and his son, Dr Michel Mew.

There are a number of videos on YouTube and the most recent gives a good explanation and is amusing.

Obviously these exercises have greater impact on the growing face which further backs our campaign “Prevent Crooked Teeth” . The petition sets out to increase awareness of the advantages of early diagnosis and, if required, appropriate treatment.

http://www.preventcrookedteeth.com To date there are over 12,000 signatures. This petition is global so anyone can sign. Let’s get to 15,000 and bring about changes which will be of benefit to the children of today and those that follow. Orthodontics has changed very little in the past 50 years and it is time to move on.

Campaign – Why are Teeth Crooked?

For decades crooked teeth have been accepted as just bad luck – a genetic inevitability that often requires extractions and fixed braces. This is seen almost as a rite of passage for teenagers. However, there is increasing awareness that such treatment can exacerbate obstructive sleep apnoea and TMJ disorders, leaving people with a lifetime of health problems.

The petition has 12,625 signatures to date, 19 June 2019

This is a global petition so anyone can sign.

I do hope that many of you reading this will want to get involved.
