Yes, Tonsil Stones can indeed be the hidden cause of bad breath.
However, tonsil stones are not always smelly nor do they always product symptoms.
Two common symptoms are discomfort when swallowing and seeing something like a ‘stone’ sticking out of your tonsils.
A dentist has created a kit for getting rid of these. Tonsil Stone Removal Kit
