Salivary Gland Problems
Most salivary gland problems are caused blockage with a salivary stone in the duct or by infection. These can usually be detected and removed. Occasionally however, the submandibular gland has to be removed in which case an incision is made just below the jaw bone and the submandibular gland removed.
