Who /weakchin/ here?
Can braces help correct an overbite or should I just end myself?
Braces? No, probably not. I had a weak chin before braces and a weak one after, the only thing they did was give me straight teeth and TMJ.
Weak chin is fucking horrid, I feel you OP, I wouldn't wish it on anybody. You might look fine when looked straight on but the second you turn to the side you instantly turn into a 1/10.
I've heard corrective jaw surgery could fix both TMJ and a weak chin, but it seems like it'd cost a fortune.
Well it's definitely affecting my quality of life. I do have breathing issues, along with TMJ. Those two together would most likely qualify me to get it, but I have no fucking insurance.
Apparently there can be reduced sensory function.
No one tells you as a kid. It's not like I knew. I started breathing through my nose when I was 15-16, but it was too late.
>That's a meme, dumbass
Your receded chin is a meme.
Do you have a narrow palate by any chance?
Sorry to hear that anon. There are surgical methods to fix this
All in all, do not end you live just because you have an underdeveloped jaw
>There are surgical methods to fix this
Meh, surgery scares me, and I've probably got other worse problems to fix first.
I've seen it asked before, but does anyone know if simply holding your lower jaw outwards for periods of time could help this over the long term?
>Does it feel like there's not enough space for your tongue to rest up there?
No, not really. I've already had braces so I assume anything like that has been fixed. Except my chin/jaw.
Strong Chin, but:

I think I did this, and now I have an underbite. My lower jaw sticks out further than it should, and I can quite easily look retarded if I don't think about how my lips are arranged (for lack of a better word), as my bottom lip naturally sits in front of the top one somewhat. I can't get my lower front teeth below the upper front ones either.
Then again, my jaw could have just grown like this anyway, I don't know if it's partly because of be sticking my jaw out.
Is there any surgery that can fix this after your jaw has stopped growing? I spent half an hour with pictures of my face in Paint, slightly moving my lower jaw to 'fix' it, and it seems to look better.
Mind you my teeth weren't that fucked up as I had worn braces before in my teens, this is pure vanity and 'issues'.
Not sure if I want to get a maxillo-mandibular surgery though.
>so be grateful
OKAY. That's not OP and neither am I tho, it's some generic picture.
you do consider it somewhat negative, though, right?
is there anything else it compares to as a negative feature?
The nose doctor recommended me to get surgery to widen my nose airway, but I guess that would not really fix it. I would need jaw and palate widening and to fix my overjet and other stuff because my sinuses are fucked, I constantly get ear aches, tmj like symptoms like jaw pain and can't sleep.
But I am so done with the health system and doctors here, the don't see the whole picture nor do they care enough to take a closer look at people. When you would ask for a different aproach the doctors get all pissy because you question their authority and competence.
>the don't see the whole picture nor do they care enough to take a closer look at people.
I'll agree with that. I've had a chronic ache of my testicle for a year or so now and after having an ultrasound and being told I had slight inflammation, they told me to go take some NSAIDs and be done with it, without even asking what was causing the inflammation in the first place. I still have it btw, months after the ultrasound.
Press the back of your tongue to the roof of your mouth and breathe through your nose. See how your jaw immediately looks a bit better than it did a minute ago?
Just keep reminding yourself to do this until it becomes reflexive, and you can fix it yourself.
You're young. When you age, you'll age alright I think, might even metachadh. Dont kill yourself yet
I really want to believe this can do something without surgery.
Dr. Mike Mew says that for this to do anything, it has to be a permanent change in your tongue posture and it will take months of constant effort.
bone structure is all genetics and a bit of nutrition and health, moving around your tongue will do absolutely nothing but give you TMJ and discomfort. I did everything he is saying as a kid and i ended up with no chin and weak jawline.
fuck, well, alright
I was just hoping for a solution that's not $20 000. Obviously my expectations were unreasonable.
is there any sort of academic criticisms proving this guy's a hack though? I just want to see where he's flat out wrong
