The treatment of parotid gland conditions is complex and extremely delicate. In addition to being intimately involved with the facial nerve and structures, the parotid glands are also responsible for several important functions, including protecting the teeth from decay, initiating digestion and moisturizing the mouth. As such, successful treatment requires a team of experienced surgeons who can resolve the disease, maximize the glands' function and preserve the associated nerves and structures.
