musculature (mus´kūləchur),

n a part of the muscular apparatus of the body; the source of power for the movement of the body or its parts.
musculature, cheek,
n the muscles giving support, form, and function to the cheeks. Should disequilibrium exist between the functional forces exerted on the dentition by the tongue and cheek musculature, deviations in tooth alignment may occur.
musculature, lip,
n the muscles that perform the physiologic or functional activities of the lips. The primary muscles include the orbicularis oris, quadratus labii superioris, risorius, and buccinators. If the tongue and the musculature of the lips do not exert equivalent forces against the teeth, movement of the teeth may occur.
musculoskeletal system
(mus´kūlōskel´ətəl),
n all the muscles, bones, joints, and related structures, such as the tendons and connective tissue, that function in the stability and movement of the parts and organs of the body. See also system, musculoskeletal.
