tonsilloliths/ bad breath

Posted by

I have had a problem with bad breath and tonsilloliths for many years now. Nothing I do seems to remedy the problem. I have tried every mouthwash and I have good mouth cleaning techniques. I am embarresed all the time, I feel uncomfortable around my husband because I know the smell is so bad. I know I have chronic sinus problems and postnasal drip, but some experts say that proper cleaning and expensive products will cure you----what a crock!!!I need a real sloution for a real person.

Question: You say you have good mouth-cleaning techniques. Are your teeth in good shape? No cavities, everything tip top? I say this because periodontal (sp?) problems can cause bad breath.

Klebsiella is one of the odor causing bacteria. If for some reason you have an overgrowth and it is the cause, I've read that tanalbit can be effective against it.

Hi, Robbie.

In order to have tonsoliths, the normal crypts have to be all stretched out of shape and that means tonsillectomy.

Remember, though, that most halitosis comes directly from the lungs and are from LGS leaking toxins back into the blood.

Do not be surprised if you still have the halitosis when the tonsils are gone.

Walt
