Sialolithiasis (salivary gland stone) is the most common disease of the salivary glands. It can occur at any age and most commonly occurs in the salivary gland that are located under your jaw, called submandibular glands. Salivary gland stones occur when calcium deposits in the duct of the gland, blocking the flow of saliva, causing pain and discomfort associated with eating.
