77.Which muscle is the chief mover of the mandible TOWARD the left?

Reactions:

Right lateral pterygoid


ANS.D. There are two methods for answering this question. The formula method

states that the right lateral pterygoid moves the mandible left, whereas the left lateral pterygoid moves

the mandible right. The understanding method begins with the idea that the medial pterygoid is a

closer (elevator). The lateral pterygoid connects to the condyle and is a protruder. If the right lateral

pterygoid pulls the right condyle out while the left lateral pterygoid and condyle remain stable, the left

side will act as a stationary pivot point while the right side protrudes outward and also toward the left

(medially).
