Nerves

Posterior Auricular Nerve

Near the stylomastoid foramen, the posterior auricular nerve arises from the facial nerve and travels upward facing the mastoid process. Insertion The posterior auricular nerve arises close to the stylomastoid foramen from the facial nerve and in front of the mastoid process runs upwards. Here from the

Buccal Nerve

The buccal nerve originates from the anterior trunk of the mandibular nerve. It is mainly a sensory nerve, but to the lateral pterygoid muscle as well as towards part of the temporalis muscle, may carry the motor innervation. Insertion The buccal nerve travels laterally in the middle

Auriculotemporal Nerve

The auriculotemporal nerve emerges as two roots, which near the middle meningeal artery travel posteriorly by rising upwards from the maxillary artery towards the foramen spinosum and it is the first branch of the posterior trunk of the mandibular nerve. Insertion The auriculotemporal nerve passes first among

Posterior Ethmoidal Nerve

Origin The posterior ethmoidal nerve originates from the nasociliary nerve, a branch of ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve. Insertion The posterior ethmoidal nerve exits the orbit from the medial wall of the orbit via a similar canal. It divides proximally towards the infratrochlear nerve and trsvels

Mental Nerve

The mental nerve exits via the mental foramen and splits in 3 branches under the depressor anguli oris muscle. It arises from the inferior alveolar nerve. Insertion The mental foramen is located in the zone of the second premolar, at the midpoint among the alveolar crest along
