Sublingual Glands

Summary Information: Sublingual Glands

Sublingual Glands: The sublingual glands are one of a variety of salivary glands and exocrine glands. A pair of sublingual glands produces saliva needed for chewing and digestion. The sublingual glands are located in the front area of the floor of the mouth just under the tongue. The sublingual glands secrete saliva and the digestive enzyme amylase through the sublingual ducts, which drain into the Wharton's ducts or directly into the oral cavity under the tongue.

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