Trouble Smiling?

There is a muscle inside your cheek, called the buccinator muscle. It is not a muscle of facial expression, rather its job is to hold food between the teeth from the outside while you chew. For some reason, it becomes tightened and shortened and then stops the smile muscles from doing their job. With specific stretches and retraining strategies you can achieve a better smile with less effort.
