Abstract

The objective of this article is to describe a new technique to anesthetize the masseter muscle and the temporalis muscle using a single extraoral approach. The block targets both the masseteric and the deep temporal nerves as they leave the infratemporal fossa to innervate the deep surfaces of their respective muscles.
