Is My Bad Breath Due to Tonsil Stones?

Chronic Bad Breath? You Might Have Tonsil Stones!

There are many reasons as to why we get bad breath, and everyone has it at some point in their life. However, for those of us who have chronic bad breath, it could be because of an underlying issue. One thing that can cause chronic bad breath is a tonsil stone. 

What is a Tonsil Stone?

A tonsil stone is a buildup of bacteria, cells, and debris in the back of your mouth. These stones are usually not painful, but they do cause some anxiety if you find one. There is nothing to worry about! 

They are very easy to remove, we do recommend having a professional remove these tonsil stones, but it is possible to do at home. 

How Do You Remove a Tonsil Stone?

We can quickly and painlessly remove the stone with an irrigation syringe and suction tube. This allows us to safely remove the stone without a choking hazard. After the stone is removed, we will use StellaLife to clean the area, and then we will use a CO2 laser to remove any more bacteria that might be left behind. This will help prevent them from growing back.

How to Prevent Tonsil Stones

It is easy to prevent tonsil stones with regular oral hygiene! Brushing, flossing, mouthwash, and consistent dental appointments will do that trick!
