Same thing here. My right masseter always burns when I chew gum, even when I chew on the left side and meanwhile my left masseter feels like it barely contracts.

possible reasons in my case:

- class 1 molar relationship on the right, class 2 on the left side -> stronger bite force on the right

- right ramus is longer, so the right masseter might be activated more during chewing motions

 

What I don´t understand is why my left cheekbone is more prominent and my arch is wider on the left side and yet ramus + masseter are bigger on the right.

I read somewhere that masseter muscles effect opposite sides of the face.
