Summary Information: Sublingual Ducts

Sublingual Ducts: The sublingual ducts are a type of salivary gland duct. The sublingual ducts are tiny tubes that connect the sublingual glands to the oral cavity. Depending on the individual, there are from eight to twenty sublingual ducts in the body. Saliva that is produced in the sublingual gland flows into the sublingual ducts directly into the mouth or flows from the sublingual ducts into the submandibular duct and then into the mouth. Saliva is released under the tongue from the sublingual ducts and the submandibular duct.

Conditions that afflict the sublingual ducts include mumps, tumors, infections, salivary duct calculus and salivary gland neoplasm.
