I have sialolith stone beneath my tongue. It is from 6 months. I do not want to have surgery. Are there any other alternatives?

Non-invasive: for small stones, hydration, moist heat therapy, nsaids (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) occasionally, and having the patient take any food or beverage that is bitter and/or sour. Sucking on citrus fruits, such as a lemon or orange, may increase salivation and promote spontaneous expulsion of the stone. Some stones may be massaged out by a specialist. Shock wave therapy (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy). Minimally invasive: sialendoscopy supporting treatment: to prevent infection while the stone is lodged in the duct, antibiotics are sometimes used.
