Salivary Gland Stone Removal
If there is a stone (calculus) in the duct under the tongue, this can be removed under local anaesthetic by making a small cut in the floor of the mouth over the stone.
If the stone is in the salivary gland under the jaw (submandibular gland) then removal may require an operation under general anaesthetic.
