In regards to preventing a salivary gland infection, drinking plenty of water and good oral hygiene is essential. You are at a higher risk of a salivary gland infection if you are a smoker.

An ear, nose and throat specialist is the best source to diagnose a salivary gland infection. If you believe you have an infection, contact your health care provider immediately.
