Masseter Muscle: The masseter muscle is a type of skeletal muscle and is involved in chewing. It is located in the jaw area and is attached to the maxilla bone (cheekbone) and to the jaw bone, called the mandible. The mandibular nerve, one of the branches of the trigeminal nerve, stimulates the masseter muscle to contract, creating movement that helps with chewing and in closing the mouth. The masseteric artery supplies blood to the masseter muscle.
