Structurally, the sublingual gland (lat: glandula sublingualis) is a collection of glands that have their own separate excretory duct terminating in the oral cavity. It is situated below the floor of the mouth.

The sublingual gland is defined as a mixed gland because it contains both serous, mucous and seromucous acini.
