Blocked salivary gland

User Level:
Posted by: toothtown  (10 years ago)
Hi all!

I recently noticed a lump on the roof of my mouth. It is not discolored and it is not painful unless I apply pressure to it. It is small in the morning then it gets bigger like the size of a pea through out the day. I went to the doctor today and he said, it's a salivary gland blocked. He referred me to an oral surgeon whom I am going to meet next week. Does anyone have had a blocked salivary gland before? How did you cure it? Please share your stories. Thanks a lot!

It's a small stone blocking the gland. You can try gargling with warm salt water. It helps in relieving the pain and swelling, and in unblocking the duct. If the symptom does not improve, have it removed by the oral surgeon.

A blocked salivary gland can cause both swelling and pain in the roof of the mouth or under the tongue. Try to suck on sour candy so you will produce more saliva that can wash away and clear the blockage in your salivary gland.
