How to Identify Tonsil Stones
Tonsil stones are hard masses that form inside folds of tissue located in the back of the throat (the tonsils). Tonsil stones are whitish-yellow in color and have a pungent, foul odor that contributes to bad breath.
The average size of a tonsil stone is around the size of a BB or small pea. Upon reaching this size, they often become dislodged while clearing the throat or breathing heavily (due to physical exertion for example).
Sometimes it's possible to see tonsil stones using a mirror. They will be located in the back of the throat towards either side. However, if they are lodged deep inside the tonsils they are not always visible.
What Causes Tonsil Stones To Form
Most often oral plaque is responsible for tonsil stone formation. Oral plaque is a sticky, colorless film containing millions of bacteria. These bacteria continually multiply, forming more plaque that spreads in places throughout the mouth.
The spread of plaque, if not disrupted, will form layers that coat the teeth, tongue, and gumline. Underneath these layers of plaque are pockets of low-oxygen environments where anaerobic bacteria thrive, also reaching millions in number.
When there are high populations of plaque and its associated bacteria present in the mouth, there are also high amounts in the saliva. There are untold billions of more bacteria that are swallowed each day when oral plaque is present compared to when it is not.
As saliva travels down the throat, the tonsils act as a bacteria filter. If the tonsils become overwhelmed, the bacteria can accumulate, clumping together along with various debris. The clumps eventually harden, forming tonsil stones.
Connection With Bad Breath
Tonsil Stones are connected with bad breath for two main reasons:
1. The plaque-associated bacteria that grows on the tongue, teeth, and gum-line (the main cause of tonsil stone formation) include a type of bacteria classified as gram-negative anaerobic bacteria. These bacteria are known to release Volatile Sulfur Compounds (VSC's)– otherwise known as bad breath.
2. Because tonsil stones are partially made up of gram-negative anaerobic bacteria, tonsil stones themselves release VSC's.
While tonsil stones themselves release VSC's, they are often not the root cause of bad breath or its largest contributor. Usually, the plaque-associated bacteria growing on the tongue, teeth, and gum-line are responsible for most VSC's.
How to Prevent Tonsil Stones
Since tonsil stones originate from plaque growth on the tongue, teeth, and gum-line, reducing this plaque and its associated bacteria in these areas is the key to preventing tonsil stones.
Tongue Scrape Daily
Because of its large surface area and porous texture, the tongue is a perfect environment for bacterial growth, having the potential to be the single largest contributor to tonsil stone formation.
Use a tongue cleaner to remove plaque on the surface of the tongue. Once this layer is removed, the anaerobic bacteria underneath will be exposed to oxygen and unable to survive.
Brush and Floss Daily
Failure to brush and floss every day can enable bacteria levels to spiral out of control on the surface of the teeth and on the gum-line, leading to not only tonsil stones, but many other oral care problems.
Get Professional Cleanings Every Six Months
Dental visits every six months will help make sure plaque growth is kept to a minimum and the mouth is in good condition. This will make it much easier to keep bacteria levels low in between dental visits thereby decreasing the risk of tonsil stone formation.
Use Amazing Breath to Slow Down Bacterial Growth
Amazing Breath helps quickly and easily control the bacteria populations responsible for tonsil stones in a very unique and effective way.
One of the biggest reasons so many people deal with tonsil stones and other plaque-related problems is the lack of effectiveness of most store-bought toothpastes and mouthwashes.
The reason they are ineffective is that when the bacteria are cleaned away or killed using these products, the bacteria return afterwards and start forming plaque again very quickly.
The rapid return of bacteria is enabled by two things: 1) the bacteria's extremely fast growth rate capability and 2) the readily available microscopic food particles and debris that act as their food source, fueling their fast growth rate.
These microscopic food particles and debris get stuck in tiny cracks and crevices in the teeth, gums, and around the mouth where they are very difficult, if not impossible to reach by brushing, flossing and tongue scraping alone. Toothpastes and mouthwashes can reach these areas but are only formulated to destroy the bacteria, not their food sources.
In order to effectively reduce plaque-associated bacteria and therefore tonsil stones, it is necessary to both kill the bacteria and slow down their growth rate. This can be accomplished by destroying the microscopic food sources in addition to the bacteria through Amazing Breath's patented oxidation formulation.
Amazing Breath's liquid formula will reach into the tiny cracks and crevices of the mouth, oxidizing trapped microscopic food particles and organic debris that bacteria use as a food source. With their food sources degraded, bacteria will have difficulty multiplying fast enough to reach the large populations that form plaque. Consistent low levels of plaque means common oral hygiene problems such as tonsil stones, bad breath, gingivitis, and cavities are much less likely to occur.
Because of Amazing Breath's unique effectiveness, we can guarantee a reduction in tonsil stones in just two short weeks. Plus, since tonsils stones are caused by the same plaque responsible for other common oral care problems, we also guarantee all the results listed below.
Experience a reduction in plaque so noticeable that your teeth will feel smoother, almost like you've just left the dentist.
Enjoy breath so fresh and long-lasting that you'll stop buying mints and chewing gums. Be spontaneous without pausing for mints or gum.
Your mouth will feel amazingly clean and healthy, providing comfort and confidence throughout the day and night.
