Location and short description of the single Muscles of Area  I - Orofacial System–

I/1. Musculus nasalis (Nose muscle)


1. Pars transversa

Abb.:3 Musculus nasalis

Site: Triangular muscle plate, flank of the nose


Origo: Canine alveolar process

Insertio: Tendon plate nasal dorsum, laterally overlayed from M. levator (3)

Path: slanting up- and median


nasal cartilage towards alveolar process, nostril narrowing;


mouth breathing in hyperactivity
