There are three major salivary glands: parotid gland (Glandula parotis), submandibular gland (Glandula submandibularis) and the sublingual gland (Glandula sublingualis) in the mouth. Further, there is the pancreas (Pankreas) that delivers its secretions into the lumen of the duodenum. Further small salivary glands are located in the tongue and in the mucosa of the palate.
