Bad breath may be caused by tonsil stones
ENT Specialist Assoc. Expressing that bad breath is a social problem that affects individuals, their families and their environment, Nurdoğan Ata said, “Bad breath is common in both children and adults. 90 percent of the cause of bad breath is oral problems. "Uncommon causes of bad breath include sinusitis, digestive system, lung and liver problems."
"Tonsil stones are a very suitable nutrition place for bacteria"
Stating that individuals who cannot get rid of bad breath by regularly caring for their teeth and brushing their tongue, Assoc. Dr. Nurdoğan Ata said, “Food residues, saliva and dead oral mucosa residues may accumulate in the small pits in the tonsils. These accumulated residues are called tonsil stones and are white-yellowish. Tonsil stones are a very suitable nutrition place for bacteria. In the same way that food residue creates a bad smell when we wait between our teeth or in tooth cavities, tonsil stones also create a bad smell. Tonsil stones mixed with inflammation because of their color do not cause fever. Sometimes, if it comes out by coughing, it is noticed that it is smelly and cheesy ”.
Mouth sprays and mouthwashes do not usually work in the treatment of tonsil stones and they can thicken saliva and increase oral discomfort because they contain alcohol. “Chewing scented gum can temporarily suppress the odor, but it never provides a definitive solution. Removing tonsil stones is also not the definitive solution. When the tonsil stone is removed, involuntary retching will be excessive. In addition, as long as the pits on the surface of the tonsils remain in place, a stone will form again after a few days. Tonsil stone treatment used to be completely removed. However, it is possible to get rid of tonsil stones and pits by using a kind of shaving method without removing the tonsils completely with the use of developing technological tools in tonsil surgeries. Radiofrequency, laser and coblator can be used for this purpose. The coblator has important advantages. Some of these are more shaving, no bleeding and less pain. The coblatorle tonsil shaving method, which is performed as day surgery, is very effective and safe. It is possible to get rid of tonsil stones by shaving the tonsils in both children and adults.
