only can feel my right masseter muscle
i can only i feel my right masseter also if i che on the left side i feel my right masseter i even got some kind of TMD issues
what could have happend?
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.
Wow thank you, that explains it perfectly!
