|Salivary glands: #1 is Parotid gland, #2 is Submaxillary gland, #3 is Sublingual gland|
They are drained by 8-20 excretory ducts.
The sublingual gland consists mostly of Mucous acini capped with serous demilunes and is therefore categorized as a mixed gland.
Most of the remaining small sublingual ducts open separately into the mouth on an elevated crest of mucous membrane, the sublingual fold (plica), caused by the gland and on either side of the frenulum linguae.
