Many have thought that the cause of bad breath is your cavity on your teeth's. So when they do to their dentists and asked to remove those cavities and after 7 days of proper hygiene, you will notice that you still have a bad breath. Why is that? well, its because there is another culprit behind your bad breath and they are called Tonsilloliths also known as tonsil stones.

Having tonsil stones is a nuisance because of the awful smell and it is difficult to remove but despite all of that they are usually not harmful.

Signs and symptoms

Tonsil stones have a chance to produce no kind of symptoms but they may be associated with bad breath, produce pain when swallowing and most likely occurs in teens than in adults or young children.

Other symptoms include a metallic taste, throat closing or tightening, coughing fits, and choking.

But having larger tonsilloliths is a different matter it may cause multiple symptoms such as recurrent halitosis, which frequently accompanies a tonsil infection, sore throat, white debris, a bad taste in the back of the throat, difficulty swallowing, ear ache, and tonsil swelling.


Most of the time there is no treatment needed, as few stones produce symptoms. Some people are able to remove those pesky tonsil stones with just using the tip of their tongues.

Oral irrigators can help too it is simple yet effective and will thoroughly clean the tonsil crypts.

Take note:

"Most electric oral irrigators are unsuitable for tonsil stone removal because they are too powerful and are likely to cause discomfort and rupture the tonsils, which could result in further complications such as infection. Irrigators that connect directly to the sink tap via a threaded attachment or otherwise are suitable for tonsil stone removal and everyday washing of the tonsils because they can jet water at low pressure levels that the user can adjust by simply turning the sink tap, allowing for a continuous range of pressures to suit each user's specific requirements." - [wikipedia]

There is a simple way you could try first before doing the other methods. Gargling with warm, salty water may help alleviate the discomfort of tonsillitis, which often accompanies tonsil stones. Gargle every morning to keep the tonsil crypts clear of all tonsilloliths except the persistent once.

There are various types of methods to remove tonsil stones which includes laser and surgery but it is best to ask your dentist for advice on how what you should do if the tonsil stones are persistent.
