Does FaceFormer® training reduce an asymmetry of the face halves?
Can the FaceFormer also be used to improve the appearance of the face to reduce asymmetry of the face halves caused by temporomandibular joints of different lengths? Is there any experience in this?
Make sure you train intensively with FaceFormer! Asymmetry in the face usually never develops due to sides of the lower jaw of different lengths, but due to a displacement of the lower jaw. The lower jaw is gradually moved muscularly to one side. It does not remain in this position, but is moved continuously. This process takes years and there is a high probability that pain in the jaw joints, headaches, etc. will occur at some point.
Such a malposition should definitely be corrected functionally with FaceFormer exercises. Under no circumstances should bite splints be used, which are unfortunately prescribed repeatedly. Correction is an active process that takes several months, because the development of the malocclusion has taken place over many years. What has developed incorrectly over the years cannot be corrected immediately. Therefore, train regularly and correctly if you really want to have success. Do not lose your patience and hold out. It is worth it!
