Chronic drooling can be both psychologically and physically damaging. The technique of sialodochoplasty with sublingual gland resection is a viable treatment modality for this problem. The results of a series of eight patients who underwent the procedure are reported. A short-term success rate of 75% was achieved without morbidity.
