The submandibular glands are located a little below the mandible or jaw bone. Its secretions enter the oral cavity through narrow ducts into the floor of the mouth.

Parotid Gland Surgery

Parotid glands are two of the largest salivary glands present just in front of the ears. They secrete saliva into the mouth and help with mastication.
