Salivary glands are exocrine glands that are part of the digestive system that produce saliva as an essential and complex fluid in the oral cavity. There are three pairs of major salivary glands, the parotid, submandibular, and the sublingual glands, and many smaller minor glands in the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx.
