Salivary Gland Disorder - Common Causes Behind it

Salivary Gland Disorder - Common Causes Behind it

Remember the sensation similar to that of a warm liquid flooding your tongue when you smell a deliciously baked chocolate cake? Or a freshly baked brown bread early in the morning? That is your saliva. The salivary glands present in the inner linings of the lips, cheeks and the mouth produce saliva. Saliva protects one from tooth decay, keeps the mouth moist and helps in the digestive process. Any disease that affects the saliva gland comes under the domain of ‘salivary gland disorders’.

Causes

There are three salivary glands in humans known as the Submandibular, Parotid and the Sublingual gland. The most common disorder that affects salivary glands is that of ‘blocked salivary glands’. Sialothiasis is a disorder wherein, calcium stones are formed in the salivary glands, which obstruct these glands. Obstruction of the salivary glands leads to an infection called sialadenitis, caused by strep or staph bacteria.

Sjogren’s syndrome is another condition which affects the salivary glands. In this condition, the antibodies in the body target the cells that produce saliva. This occurs mostly in women who suffer from autoimmune disorders. Viral infections are also common; flu virus and mumps are a few examples.

Symptoms

The symptoms of salivary gland disorders are problem specific; for Sialolithiasis, you will feel a painful lump below the tongue, which tends to aggravate when you eat. In case of Sialadenitis, there will be an odorous pus-filled discharge along with a lump beneath the chin. For viral infections, the symptoms will include muscle pain, swelling and fever. Symptoms of Sjogren’s syndrome are dry eyes and mouth, joint pain, fatigue and tooth decay.

Treatment

Like the symptoms, the treatments for salivary gland disorders are also problem specific. For salivary gland tumors, surgery is required. If it is a malignant tumor, then radiation therapy will be prescribed which may cause dry mouth syndrome (Xerostomia). For bacterial and viral infections, anti-bacterial and anti-viral medications are required for treatment, respectively. It is also important that you take good care of your oral health for an even more effective treatment. Brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis will help keep salivary gland disorders at bay. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Everytime when I get fever, I am getting rashes on my mouth. 2 days back I got fever and now the same situation. How can I overcome this?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Dear Sir/Madam, My teeth are light yellow in color since 10 years what should i do to make it as white color ?

BDS
Dentist, Kanchipuram
Hi, The color of the teeth varies from person to another person.Like skin color the teeth color varies.Like the various shades of brown skin,there are various shades of white teeth.So we have to diagnose whether your problem is due to external conditions like calculus & stains or due to internal(birth defects or flourosis).So visit a dentist immediately he will diagnose the condition.If it is external a simple scaling and polishing makes your teeth brighter.So dont worry.Have a bright smile as soon as possible.

I am 25 year female met with an dental accident in. I have gone through a dental surgery and had wire braces on teeth five years ago. Now m having foul smell or bad breath problem after that aaccident. Wat should I do?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Hello , the problem of bad breath is called halitosis. Knowing your history of accident I can say that probably because of the rearrangement of your teeth after the accident you must be having the problem of plaque accumulation which is soft white deposits on the teeth due to misaligned teeth. You probably require a round of cleaning followed by mouthwash rinsing for few days. Kindly see a dentist for your cleaning procedure and he would be able to tell you more after looking at your teeth clinically.

The tooth paste that you choose to use should be clinically approved by the American Dental Association (ADA) as they are the pioneer in the field of dental and oral health care. 

I have a sensitivity in my teeth and I used colgate pro relief but still my sensitivity doesn't.

MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist, Mumbai
Visit a dentist to find out the cause of the sensitivity. If the case if very severe, using a simple over-the-counter toothpaste will not be enough. A suitable treatment must be undertaken followed up by maintenance using an anti sensitivity paste.

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

The pain in my lower jaw is pulsating and I am feeling a bad taste and that part of my jaw has turned black.

I have listened that after the cleaning the teeth they becomes weak. So is it true or not? I will clean my teeth or not? Please advise.

MDS
Dentist, Kota
Public gossips create so much of misunderstanding. Stop listening to them and listen to the person who can solve your doubts with facts. Professional cleaning is a method to cure disease not to create disease. So consult to your dentist and clear your doubts first then only proceed further.

My 3 teeth have cavity they are half broken half inside, i want to take them off and get new one implanted . is it possible?.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Madam when you say you want a new " tooth " implanted which is called " transplant" I think you are referring to placement of an implant. An implant is just like a screw which would screwed into your jaw bone. So to first place an implant we need good bone support. So if you have good bone support we can place an implant and a crown on top.
