See your dentist: Many salivary gland disorders have very similar symptoms. The main symptom of salivary gland disorders is irritated or swollen salivary glands. There are many tests that can diagnose salivary gland disorders. These tests help determine the cause of salivary gland symptoms. See your dentist for evaluation, diagnosis and possible referral to a specialist.
