Sialadenitis refers to a condition that is caused by a saliva stone that gets caught in the duct of the salivary gland. This saliva stone is an accumulation of saliva bacteria as well as viruses that multiply and create dental problems. A salivary stone forms in one of the major salivary glands and these generally form in the third to fifth decade of one’s life, though children can also be affected by it.
Ways to Prevent Sialadenitis
Salivary gland inflammation and its most common cause, salivary stone, can be prevented by:
• Paying attention with optimum dental care as well as oral hygiene and
• Ingesting of enough fluid.
When you drink lots of fluids, you promote the production of saliva, which can thus help in preventing sialadenitis. An increase in saliva in the mouth cleanses the salivary glands and flushes out existing stones. You could suck on sugar-free or sour candy.
