Submandibular Gland
The Submandibular Gland lies superior and inferior to the posterior half of the body of the mandible, and superficial and deep to the mylohyoid muscle.

Preganglionic parasympathetc fibers are conveyed to the submandibular gland via the chorda tympani in the lingual nerve.

The submandibular gland is a common site of calculus formation. This condition is rare in the other salivary glands.
