Care Plan


First steps to consider

  • If symptoms are mild to moderate, you may be able to help push the salivary stone out with home treatments.
  • Drink a lot of fluids and suck on sour candy (lemon candies are best) to encourage saliva flow to push out the stone.
  • Taking OTC pain relievers and placing a warm compress on your cheek can help with the pain.

When you may need a provider
