Abstract

Calcifications found in the salivary ducts or glands are called sialolithiasis or salivary gland stones. Submandibular gland is most commonly affected followed by parotid. The treatment options include its surgical removal via dissection into the duct or the gland. We present a case of an 81 years male patient having large submandibular duct sialolithiasis which was treated by an intraoral surgical approach with a little overlook on to the literature.
