One of the most important innovations in last few years is sialoendoscopy. The diagnosis and treatment of obstruction and inflammation of the salivary glands can be problematic because of the limitations of the standard imaging techniques. Sialoendoscopy is a new technique for evaluating salivary obstructive diseases, which allows complete visualization of the ductal system and its disorders. This procedure by allowing the complete exploration of the salivary ductal system is positioned to replace sialography and other radiological studies because of its higher specificity and cost effectiveness.
