How many veins are in your tongue?



  1. 0 Votes

    Tributary veins include: Sublingual, Deep Lingual, Dorsal Lingual and Suprahyoid veins. Arteries include the Ranine, the contralateral lingual artery The locations of the veins vary slightly from person to person.  The tongue heals relatively quickly as a result of the high rate of blood-flow through the muscle. A majority of that blood is carried by the lingual arteries with a little help from the facial, inferior alveolar and buccal arteries.
