Sialadenitis is a salivary gland infection resulting from an obstruction of the salivary gland. The obstruction causes the saliva flow to be reduced and the bacterial overgrowth within the salivary gland causes sialadenitis.

Dr Clancy explains what to expect when you are having surgery to remove the submandibular gland
Sialolithiasis (also termed salivary calculi, or salivary stones), is a condition where a calcified mass or sialolith forms within a salivary gland, usually in the duct of the submandibular gland (also termed "Wharton's duct"). Less commonly the parotid gland or rarely the sublingual gland or a minor salivary gland may develop salivary stones. The usual symptoms are pain and swelling of the affected salivary gland, both of which get worse when salivary flow is stimulated, e.g. with the sight, thought, smell or taste of food, or with hunger or chewing. This is often termed "mealtime syndrome".Inflammation or infection of the gland may develop as a result. Sialolithiasis may also develop because of the presence of existing chronic infection of the glands, dehydration (e.g. use of phenothiazines), Sjögren's syndrome and/or increased local levels of calcium, but in many instances the cause is idiopathic (unknown). The condition is usually managed by removing the stone, and several different techniques are available. Rarely, removal of the submandibular gland may become necessary in cases of recurrent stone formation. Sialolithiasis is common, accounting for about 50% of all disease occurring in the major salivary glands and causing symptoms in about 0.45% of the general population. Persons aged 30–60 and males are more likely to develop sialolithiasis.

Pueden llegar a producir obstrucciones e inflamaciones (sialitis) que pueden causar dolor al comer, cuando se incrementa la producción de saliva, e infecciones de la glándula. La mayoría de este tipo de cálculo se forma en la glándula submandibular. Music: Different Heaven & EH!DE - My Heart [NCS Release]
ENT specialist Dr. Christie Barnes explains a newer procedure called sialoendoscopy. Nebraska Medicine is the first hospital to introduce it in the state of Nebraska. It's a minimally invasive procedure which involves inserting small cameras into the duct of the salivary (saliva) glands. There are four major salivary glands and occasionally they can become blocked by obstructions. Sialoendoscopy allows physicians to insert a small camera into the duct and remove small stones, or widen the duct to allow function of the salivary glands. Patients who suffer from salivary gland obstruction often have swelling or pain - typically around mealtime. To schedule an appointment, call Nebraska Medicine at 800.922.0000.
