New Webpage on Sialadenitis (Salivary Gland Infection/Stone) and Its Treatment

A new webpage has been created describing what sialadenitis is and how it is treated. In essence, sialadenitis is when one of the spit glands of the body (parotid gland or submandibular gland located on the cheek and under the jawbone respectively) becomes infected resulting in swelling and pain. Sometimes, the salivary gland may become secondarily infected due to a salivary stone. Click here to read more about it!
