If you have bad breath even though your dental health is perfect, there might be a problem a little bit deeper. They’re so called tonsil stones and about a quarter of the population has them. They’re pretty rank also.
According to IJ Review:
The specialists affirmed that Beckler’s awful breath was being caused by tonsil stones — particularly, the microbes feeding on the tonsil stones, which discharge a gas with a foul, sulfurous odor.
Beckler had to get rid of the tonsil stones to treat the bad breath. Her treatment was laser ablation, an outpatient practice where the throat is numbed and the stones destroyed with a laser. Mostly the stones don’t come back.
Meghan Swann used a home-grown method to remove her tonsil stones. As she claim The New York Times, Swann thought she had something in her throat when pushing on her tonsil removed the stone.
Meghan talked with her mother (who had the same problem) and found that her tonsil stones can be removed by probing her tonsil with a Q-tip. She wrote the method on her blog because Swann discovered that there were many others who shared the same problem.
Dr. Lee Zimmer recommends gargling with a non-alcohol based mouth washing and a waterpark to blast the tonsils free of stones. It might be gross to think about, but better to fix it than pay no attention to it. Watch this video to learn more:
