Sialolithiasis is the most common pathology in salivary gland with submandibular gland being the most common one. Salivary gland calculi can either be single or multiple and vary in size. Occlusal radiograph is the most common investigation done followed by USG, sialography, sialendoscopy, CT or MRI. Sialolithiasis can be either managed conservatively, intraoral marsupialisation, surgical excision of submandibular gland, sialendoscopy and stone removal or ESWL or ISWL methods depending on size and location of stone.
