Purpose of review We aim to provide a review of recent advances in the treatment of benign salivary gland disorders as well as an overview of these disorders. Recent findings Sialendoscopy is increasingly being used to diagnose and treat a variety of salivary gland disorders. Magnetic resonance sialography is emerging as a salivary gland imaging modality. Transoral submandibular gland excision is an evolving technique that eliminates external scars and potentially decreases the risk to surrounding structures. Finally, developments in oral appliances have decreased sialorrhea avoiding surgical management. Summary Sialendoscopy is an effective and minimally invasive method of diagnosing and treating benign salivary gland disorders. Other promising developments in this field are magnetic resonance sialography, transoral submandibular gland excision, and oral appliance therapy.
