Masseteric nerve

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Template:Infobox Nerve


The masseteric nerve passes lateralward, above the Pterygoideus externus, in front of the temporomandibular articulation, and behind the tendon of the Temporalis; it crosses the mandibular notch with the masseteric artery, to the deep surface of the Masseter, in which it ramifies nearly as far as its anterior border.

It gives a filament to the temporomandibular joint.
