Salivary Duct Stone Remedies

Last Modified on Nov 26, 2014

Treatment for salivary duct stones includes remedies that naturally dissolve the blockages. A variety of tonics are effective for achieving this result. Likewise, limiting calcium may also help reduce the appearance and frequency of stones.

What are Salivary Duct Stones?

A salivary duct stone is a calcification in the salivary gland, which blocks the flow of saliva in the mouth. Stones most often form in the base of the mouth; however, the deposits can form on the cheeks and under the tongue. Most individuals who experience stones have multiple deposits. The exact cause of the deposits is unknown, but several contributing factors have been identified including dehydration, poor eating and certain medications.

Natural Remedies for Salivary Gland Stones

As salivary gland stones are caused by the buildup of calcium and other minerals in the salivary gland, treatment focuses on naturally dissolving the buildup. Common treatments include apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and oregano oil. Limiting calcium in the diet is also an important component of treatment for this condition.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a nutritional supplement heralded for its effective treatment of a wide range of conditions. The supplement is an acid that actual functions to alkalize the body and maintain an appropriate pH balance in the body. As it does so, the vinegar dissolves salivary duct stones as well as other toxic buildups in the body.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice works to treat salivary blockages in two fundamental ways. The acidity of the lemon alkalizes the body and restores an appropriate pH level. Additionally, the sourness of the lemon increases salivation, which works to dissolve the blockage as well.

Oregano Oil

Oregano oil is a potent antibiotic substance. When applied to the site of the blockage, the oil kills the bacteria and infection in the mouth that may be contributing to the blockage. Oregano oil also reduces inflammation.

A salivary gland stone is a calcified deposit located in the salivary gland or duct. These deposits often block the flow of saliva and can cause swelling and discomfort. Effective natural treatment works to safely dissolve deposits and return normal function to the salivary glands.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I have blocked Salivary glands. I use wild oregano oil to keep the infection and swelling down, and I came to this site to see what I could do to get the blockage removed in the meantime.

Wild oregano oil is a strong natural antibiotic and will kill all the nasty bacteria and whatnot in your mouth. I brush with it daily.

Hi, there! I was told by my physician that I have a stone(s) blocking my submandibular salivary glands. It swells up when it eat, is very painful, and not to mention, very cosmetically disturbing. Who wants to go around looking like they have golf balls hanging from their double chin? :P When I came upon this page, I was excited as it seems no other webpage has posted anything really, regarding home remedies that would seem affective. My question is what do I do with the ingredients listed above? Do I ingest them? Let them sit in my mouth? Further clarification would be much appreciated!

Lissa, try looking up iodine and parotid stones. Iodine is a classic treatment for these stones, but what amount should be used I don't know, but some research should tell you.
