Abstract

Sialolithiasis is one of the most common problems that afflict the salivary glands and is a major cause of salivary gland dysfunction. Sialolithiasis is frequently encountered in clinical practice. The mechanism for stone formation is incompletely understood. The clinical diagnosis and standard management of sialolithiasis are discussed, and new modalities for treatment are also presented in this article.
