Salivary stone?: You may want to have your oral surgeon examine the floor of your mouth for a possible salivary stone.

Sometimes they become enlarged if the toothbrush hits them during brushing. Usually rinsing with warm salt water for 2-3 days helps. Brush your teeth and gums gently. If not, visit your dentist for further evaluation. ...Read more
