A well-defined jawline is often seen as a sign of beauty and strength. For both men and women, a strong jawline can create an appearance of power and confidence. There are a number of ways to achieve this look, but one of the most popular methods is to use a jawline exerciser

Unfortunately, there are numerous name-brand jawline exercisers on the market, all claiming to be the best, complicating the search for the ideal tool.

So, what factors should you take into account if you want to incorporate one of these devices into your beauty routine?

Well, when comparing brands and models, think about which features will be most beneficial to your needs. The incorrect jawline exercise tool can cause more harm than good.

This article will discuss the key features to look for in a jawline exerciser to help you make an informed decision about which one is best for you.

Let's get our teeth into it!

Why Enhanced Safety Features Matter

While your jaw muscles may get a workout from everyday activities, you can also help keep them healthy and strong with the use of a jaw exerciser. These devices work by adding resistance to the muscles, which in turn leads to increased strength. However, because the muscles in the jaw are delicate, it is easy to accidentally apply too much pressure, which can lead to health problems such as: 

TMJ: Temporomandibular joint disorders occur when you spend more time chewing or clenching your jaw. It results in chronic pain in the joints and connecting muscle tissues. This could even hamper your speech and make eating a nightmarish experience.

Oral health issues: Introducing more force can weaken teeth and worsen dental problems.

Dizziness and headaches: Increased chewing can cause tension, headaches, and dizziness.

Some devices can even cause jaw joint dislocation. That’s why it’s essential to pick a device that offers the right level of mechanical resistance.

Let’s look at a list of enhanced safety features that prevent these and other undesired side effects.

Choke Prevention

It is important to remember that any object that is inserted into the mouth carries a certain degree of choke risk. That is why it is essential to choose a device that has wide passageways that will allow you to breathe freely and let saliva sip past the device

Material Quality

The problem with most jawline exercise tools is that they do not simulate natural chewing. It can feel like chewing on an unlimited raw carrot instead of a well-done steak. Examining the material construction can help you avoid such problems.

For equal measure, always insist on FDA and EU-certified food-grade silicone. Such materials offer the right chew. They are also highly resistant to the force and coarse surfaces of teeth. So, you don't have to worry about biting through and swallowing stray pieces of  the toy.

Bonus: You also get something that doesn't taste bad, so you can chew on it for longer periods of time

Effective Molar placement

Your molars are tough, large, and have a solid connection to the jawline muscles. This makes them the ideal spot for placing your jawline exerciser. The pressure and persistent mechanical resistance are supplied simultaneously to 4 to 6 teeth. Such a construction detail reduces the stress and workload per tooth. 

Couple that with soft and durable silicone, and you reduce the chances of dental health problems. It also reduces friction levels that can wear down your enamel and cause tooth cavities and decay.

TMJ Protection

The temporomandibular joint isn’t permanently fixed to its socket. So, it can pop out of place when you open your mouth wide enough or due to stress from chewing. The ideal device should be small enough to fit on the edge of the mouth. This helps to ensure the TMJ stays connected to its socket even as you apply more pressure.

You can also increase your safety by restricting your intense workout sessions to no more than 10 to 15 minutes. After the workout, you can also stretch your jaw and flex your mouth for a few seconds to ensure your TMJ remains rooted.

Mechanical Resistance and Intensity Level

You'll want to find an exerciser that provides enough resistance in order to ensure that your masseter muscles are being properly targeted.

The best devices will also offer adjustable resistance, so you can gradually increase the intensity level as your muscles get stronger. This way, you can start at a lower level and slowly increase the intensity as your muscles get used to the excercise

Durability and Strength

The human jaw is surprisingly more robust than you would believe. You exert up to 160 Psi (pounds per square iInch) with one bite. Therefore, the ideal device must deliver 20 to 60 pounds of resistance.

Such levels increase your safety as you operate the jawline dumbbells. This also ensures that the device can take the beating from such force. Your teeth are also sharp and abrasive. Such a consideration ensures you’ll use your device for longer.

The Size and Shape of the Exerciser

As mentioned, The TMJ can easily pop out of its socket with increased usage or abuse. Considering the size and shape of the device can prevent such undesired results. Insist on getting something with louvered edges that hold to the edges of your teeth.

This eliminates choking hazards, as the device won’t slide away as you chew. You may need to review the size to pick the ideal one since everyone has a different jaw size and shape. 

It's also important to find an exerciser with a comfortable fit. Look for one that has soft padding on the inside edges so it doesn't pinch or rub your skin 

Reasonable Expectations 

All jawline brands claim their products allow for a full jaw workout with each bite. It’s a viable way to strengthen your jaw muscles and curve a leaner or more pronounced look. Somec even claim their devices can burn fat deposits to the chin and face.

There is some truth to these claims as jawline shapers actively engage masseter and other facial muscles leading to their expansion. However, this is pegged on proper and consistent use. It may also be prudent to consider additional measures such as reducing your sodium intake for lasting results. 

However, one thing is for sure – Jawline exercisers reduce the stress and pain of working out these hard-to-reach muscles! So, you’re assured of a stronger jaw and facial contouring. 



You should notice some growth in your lower jaw after using an exerciser for a few weeks. And if your facial contouring doesn't produce sharper contrast between the neck and face, you got the wrong product. All you’ve achieved is stronger jaw muscles without the aesthetic benefits.
