Salivary stone?: You may want to have your oral surgeon examine the floor of your mouth for a possible salivary stone. A stone that blocks the end of this salivary duct can cause swelling and tenderness of the gland it drains as well as the floor of the mouth until the stone is removed. Chronic blockage of the flow of saliva can also cause infection of the gland so visit your oral surgeon reasonably soon.
