Thus, it causes a range of conditions and symptoms, such as pain in the muscles of mastication
and TMJ, presence of noise and joint deviation, headache, hearing disorders, sensibility all over the muscles of the cervical and stomatognathic system (2).
Muscles of mastication
may play a role in stability and relapse potential following functional appliance treatment.
The signs will be assessed using auscultation and palpation of muscles of mastication
The study presents cooperation between physiotherapists and dentists by investigating the impact of kinesiotaping and inactivation of trigger points applied to the area of the masseter in the course of functional disorders of the muscles of mastication
, with particular emphasis on pain.
 The concept of the structural position (SP) of the mandible was introduced by Moller  to characterize the position that provides an optimal functional condition for the muscles of mastication
and the TMJ.
The masticator space (MS) contains muscles of mastication
(medial and lateral pterygoid, masseter, and temporalis), ramus of the mandible and the third division of the cranial nerve V (Figure 10A).

An electromyographic study of the action of the muscles of mastication
and its correlation to facial morphology," Acta Physiologica Scandinavica, Supplement, vol.
It was impossible to forcefully open her mouth as the muscles of mastication
were contracting involuntarily.
Careful extraoral examination is necessary for the dental erosion patient to evaluate the temporomandibular joints and muscles of mastication
It also supplies the motor control for the muscles of mastication
so Dusty requires both sensory and motor testing.
Masticatory muscle myositis is an autoimmune canine myopathy causing focal inflammation of muscles of mastication
including the temporalis, masseter, pterygoid and rostral digastricus, all of which are innervated by mandibular branch of trigeminal nerve (Bolfa et al., 2011; Melmed et al., 2004; Reiter and Schwarz, 2007).
