    A case of bilateral recurrent submandibular sialadenitis is presented in a patient with decreased salivary flow. The condition was caused by trapping of the submandibular papillae between the lingual flange of the denture and the enlarged genial tubercles. Removal of these causes led to resolution of her symptoms. The value of plain radiography, sialography and scintigraphy is discussed.
