Chewing with Incisors
« on: May 04, 2016, 06:03:21 pm »
Hello,

I recently came to realize how underutilized my incisors and canines are when chewing. Back in the paleolithic days we used to use our incisors to tear off the flesh of animals before we would  move the food to the back of the mouth and begin chewing it with the molars. Now, in the present day we use forks and knives to do the work of our incisors for us.

A theory that I recently have been toying with is that the incisors need to be utilized when chewing to promote optimal facial growth. You can put food into the front of the mouth when chewing, but I don't feel it has the same effect as it does when you use the incisors to tear into something big. If you tear into something big you are utilizing your Jaw's full range of motion, but when you move food to the front of your mouth to chew your not really using full range of motion. Your mouth movement will be restricted by what you can maintain in your mouth.

I recently have been chewing on a rolled up towel. Its a great jaw exercise and it really emulates the effects of using the incisors to tear into something. While chewing, I'll even incorporate some face pulling while my bite is closed down on the towel and will pull in a forward/upward motion. I notice similar effects as when I use the mouth guard and shoe lace technique pulling technique.

Do you guys think its logical? I haven't been trying it long enough to have definitive before and afters, but I definitely feel it and will continue doing it because it seems to make a lot of sense to me.

Hmmm, you do got a point.

Nowadays we barely even use our front teeth, when would have alot a long time ago.

It way have a role in further bringing out the maxilla.



Have you experienced any changes or results? I might start doing this.

I've found that biting down with my mouth full of a sturdy cloth with a focus on biting with the incisors has helped improve my gonial angle. My lower jaw is pretty retruded and doing this method naturally forces me to bring forward my lower jaw forward while putting the muscles under tension.

This should help if your mandible is retruded as well as if your maxilla is retruded.

I've also found that by jutting my lower jaw forward like kobe in this image the tongue will have more room to be placed on the roof of the mouth because my mandible will be in a more forward position, forcing my maxilla to play catch-up.

You will lose support from your jaw if you do that position.

Not good.

Causing face lengthening. I did it for years because I didn't like my "natural" look (overbite). Problem only got worse, and now I have to face it (lol, face it)
I accepted my look... nevertheless, mewing and braces are helping a lot, the problem is getting fixed soon. Thanks God, It's been a long time.

Yeah, thanks for the input. I should put in my signature: warning, I am not a doctor and I do not really know what I'm talking about.

However, I have found benefit from doing this position, as it makes it easier to push my tongue up on the roof of my mouth(mostly just the front part of the tongue as I don't think I can fit the posterior portion on there yet). I did have orthodontics that pretty severely retracted my face, so that may be why I find it beneficial to do this.

I am considering seeing an orthodontist about alf though.

Real good advice on the chewing with insisors on a cloth , will start doing it.

But the lower jaw placement is not good, as you loose all support from your jaw pushing which helps alot for widening the face and bringing the maxilla foward. The whole tounge needs to there, not just the tip, and it itworks to also widen the dental arch.

But good luck,

Hi Gucci, sorry for the late response. I wanted to give myself some time to see results before I posted again.

Your probably right about the jaw jutting, and I've stopped doing it.

However, as I continue to do the face pulling with a towel I notice that my bite is somewhat naturally assuming that jaw jutting position, but not in an unnatural way like Kobe is doing in the picture.

I have noticed undeniable results so far from this method. More so than anything I've done in the past (tongue on roof, face yoga, etc.) Jaw is more prominent, cheek bones more prominent, and overall my face is more chiseled and defined.

I'm not just biting and pulling with the incisors either. I focus my bite on different parts of the mouth, like the molars or canines. The method is simple, just bite down on the towel really hard and pull forward and up. Pulling laterally seems to do something as well, although I'm still experimenting with it.

I'll do about 5 intervals of 3-5mins each 2x a week, as I believe its necessary to let the muscles recover before commencing with another workout. This is in line with bodybuilding principles that say that recovery is tantamount to achieving growth in between workouts.

Here's a like to a very popular thread on lookism where a guy is doing something very similar except he uses a belt.

The guy's before and afters are incredible. I probably won't be showing any B/A's cuz I'm shy like that, but I might in the future.  :P

What teeth did you bite the towel with? Was it your front teeth or back molars?

I think it's better to mount the pulling with your morals, theyre more stable than incisors.

I don't see any changes on him to be honest; his hair grew, and his skin is whiter. He is raising his cheeks to look better. His face looks fuller because he obviously gained weight

He received a lot of criticism on his thread because of this, I only accept that his jaw looks stronger but it's barely anything in "1 year doing facepull with a belt"
