- Sialolithiasis (salivary calculi) is the occurrence of calcareous concentration in the salivary ducts or glands. It causes to patient intermittent pain, swelling and discomfort during mealtime. Submandibular gland is the most common site of involvement due to its anatomical and histological characters. Sialadenitis is an insidious inflammatory disease of the major salivary glands and most of sialadenitis is derived from sialolithiasis. Salivary calculi are common, and more so in adults than in children. Surgical removal of calculi is the treatment of choice but when calculi are present in the substance of gland itself, or if multiple, surgical removal of the may be planned.
The two patients, visited to our hospital of dentistry with symtoms of acute sialadenitis with salivary calculi and sialolithiasis respectively.
