About The Human Cheek Left

The soft fleshy part of the face below the cheek bones. linked with the facial nerve and implicated in facial expressions.


Facial Nerves

The facial nerve is the seventh cranial nerve. It begins in parts of the brain stem and branches into the face, neck, salivary glands and outer ear. The facial nerve performs both motor and sensory functions. Branching up from the brain stem, it divides into smaller nerves that reach into the face, neck, salivary glands and the outer ear. These branches control the muscles of the neck, the facial expressions, and the muscles of the forehead. They also stimulate secretions of the lower jaw and those salivary glands which are in the front of the mouth. Along with this, they report taste sensations from the front two-thirds of the tongue and carry sensations from the outer ear. Although a spontaneous grin and a deliberate smile both use lip and cheek muscles, each involves a different neural pathway from the brain.

Facial Nerves

The "facial"nerves" are the seventh pair of cranial nerves and are, therefore, numbered "VII." They arise from the lower part of the pons at the base of the brain stem and emerge on the sides of the face. Their sensory branches are associated with taste receptors on the front two-thirds of the tongue, and some of the motor fibers send impulses to muscles for facial expressions. Other fibers function involuntarily by stimulating the tear gland and some saliva glands (submandibular, sublingual, and parotid salivary glands). The facial nerves from the brow to the throat under the chin include: (1) the temporal nerve, (2) the zygomatic nerve, (3) the buccal nerve, (4) the facial nerve, (4) the posterior auricular nerve, (5) mandibular nerve, and (6) the cervical nerve.
