Hi Janka,
Welcome to HCM.
The way scientific knowledge is increasing by leaps and bounds, nothing seems to be impossible these days.
As of now I do not know if there is any technique of implanting salivary gland cells. We already have host of tissue replacement therapies such as bone marrow transplant, liver transplant etc. May be this is also possible. Try to get in touch with those scientists in Netherland and find out the details.
Wishing you all the best.
