  Treatment of Submandibular gland enlargement due to either neoplastic or non neoplastic diseases are submandibulectomy. It can be approached via transoral or transcervical. The aim of this case series is to demostrate that transcervical approach is the most preferred way because it allow wider exposure of surgical field and safer. Here, we showed a case series of same approach via transcervical for submandibulectomy for submandibular pleomorphic adenoma, recurrent sialolithiasis and plunging ranula. There were no post operative complication noted in all the three patients.
