How to use "Salivary glands" in context?

The salivary glands are a pair of small, triangular-shaped organs located just below the lower jawbone. They are responsible for producing saliva, a fluid that helps to moisten food as it is consumed. Saliva also helps remove debris from the throat and stomach.

The salivary glands are composed of two parts: the parotid gland and the submandibular gland. The parotid gland is located in the front of the neck and is responsible for producing the majority of the saliva. The submandibular gland is located in the lower torso and is responsible for producing lesser amounts of saliva.
