Brief Answer:
Salivary gland stones.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I see the picture you attached. I don't think it is a temporomandibular disorder.
It is a sublingual salivary gland problem.
I don't think it is an infection since she used
antibiotics without success. I believe it is caused by salivary gland stones. The stones block the salivary duct causing swelling and pain.
Your doctor should examine her physically or do an ultrasound to put diagnosis.

Drinking lots of water can help stones out.
Also having lemons and other foods that trigger salivary production can help stones to come our.

The treatment is sialendiscopy to move stones out.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
MRI will help to determine the stone's position.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and thank you for asking again.

I believe she has salivary stones and doing an MRI is more reasonable.
It is needed to put the exact diagnosis and to determine the exact place where the stone is located in order to remove and unblock the salivary duct.

Extracorporeal wave lithotripsy is generally tried to treat the stones.
