What volume of saliva is normally produced per day?
Where is saliva produced?
Submandibular glands (70% saliva produced here): opens into oral cavity via Wharton's duct at a small papilla lateral to the frenulum linguae; supplied by the facial nerve.
Parotid gland: opens into oral cavity adjacent to the second molar tooth via Stensen's duct; supplied by the glossopharyngeal nerve.
Saliva is also produced by the sublingual and minor salivary glands within the oral mucosa.
