Submandibular Glands: The submandibular glands are one of a variety of salivary glands and exocrine glands. A pair of submandibular glands produces the majority of saliva needed for chewing and digestion. There is one submandibular gland located on each side of the back of the oral cavity, deep under the bottom of the mouth near the back of the mandible. The submandibular glands secrete saliva and the digestive enzyme amylase through the Wharton's ducts into the mouth in the area under the tongue.
Conditions that afflict the submandibular glands include mumps, tumors, infections, salivary duct calculus and salivary gland neoplasm.
