It helps you digest your food. It also cleans your mouth and contains antibodies that can kill germs. . Problems with salivary glands can cause the glands to become irritated and swollen. This causes symptoms such as . - Bad taste in the mouth. - Difficulty opening your mouth . - Dry mouth. - Pain in the face or mouth. - Swelling of the face or neck. Causes of salivary gland problems include infections, obstruction or cancer. Problems can also be due to other disorders, such as mumps or Sjogren's syndrome. .  [from MedlinePlus]
