Will Mewing Give Me Wider And Lower Jaw Angles?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I lack confidence because of my thin and narrow face, I think I look feminine which is not so good. I have a long bottom jaw which is steep. Can mewing work or should I get surgery for implants?

A: The only predictable and sustained method for jaw augmentation is implants. Mewing can not produce the type of jaw augmentation changes that implants can and, once in place, would require no work to maintain the result.
