Tonsil stones are white or yellowish deposits that reside within the folds of our tonsils. If you don’t have tonsils, you are not likely to get tonsil stones. The problem with tonsil stones is that they often smell. They can contribute to your bad breath.
Please notice that I did not say that they cause bad breath. They actually come into being, at least partially, from the bacteria living on your tongue who create the compounds that make tonsil stones begin to smell.
However, it is undeniable that sometimes, bad breath odor does come from those tonsil stones. In either case, however, tonsil stones are often uncomfortable. On the other hand, you could have them and never know it.
I had a coworker who was surprised at just how many she had. She told me that they just kept coming out – she was using a throat cleaning device attached to the HydroPulse to dislodge them.
Generally speaking, tonsil stones are not hard to remove. But, if you have specific questions about your dental health or tonsil stones, those questions should be addressed to your doctor or dentist.
There are commercial kits available to remove tonsil stones. If you have any questions about their use, those questions should also be addressed to a health care practitioner of your choosing. It would be possible to have an in-clinic tonsil stones treatment done to help you get rid of them.
Dr. Katz has a solution for Tonsil Stones that works. Here is what one satisfied customer had to say:
“I did not know what I had going on in my throat until this year. I ‘had’ tonsil stones. I ordered Aktiv Oxigen Serum, tablets and the kit and 14 days later I had no sign of any tonsil stones. My mouth and tongue have never felt and looked this good!”
