ER physician Dr. Travis Stork explains that these stones are formed in your salivary ducts when food debris reacts with chemicals in the saliva and crystallizes. If your salivary ducts are clogged, this can lead to bad breath. These stones are most common in people who are experiencing dehydration or taking antihistamines. If left in, these stone can become impacted and possibly cause an infection or abscess.

The treatment for these stones can be a simple as stimulating saliva flow by sucking on something sour or lemon flavored, which may cause the stone to pass spontaneously. In other cases, your doctor or dentist may need to massage or push the stone out of the salivary duct. If the stone is lodged, an incision may be needed to remove it.
