The dotted line represents the vector of the frontotemporal branch of the facial nerve. By dividing the length of the mentum to the mastoid process by the length of the mandibular ramus, the authors determined a normalised ratio of 1. On the face, where it passes over the body of the mandible, it is comparatively superficial, lying immediately beneath the dilators of the mouth.
