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 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 scraper 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.
Schedule a Dental Cleaning
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.
