Bad breath always lingers? Perhaps tonsil stones are causing trouble

What is tonsil stones?

In daily life, I believe many people have heard of gallstones, kidney stones, and urethral stones, but very few have heard of tonsil stones.

Tonsil stones, as the name suggests, are stones that grow on the tonsils and have a strong odor. In the “stone world”, they can be considered one of the “unpopular” stones.

Most people have never seen or even heard of tonsil stones, but about 10% of people spend their days with them.

Some people experience bad breath, a foreign body sensation in their throat, and when coughing or sneezing, they spit out white particles like sand or tofu residue, which is also because of it.

How are tonsil stones formed?

This starts with the tonsils.

The tonsils we usually refer to are the palatal tonsils, a pair of flattened oval lymphoid organs located at the junction of the mouth and throat. Its surface is like the surface of the moon, bumpy and uneven (tonsil dimples), with approximately 6-20 tonsil dimples.

Due to various reasons, some people’s oral mucosal epithelial cells and oral secretions that have fallen off may accumulate in the crypts of the tonsils along with food residues, depositing calcium salts secreted by the glands, and then forming stones, known as tonsil stones.

How do you know if you have tonsil stones?

The most direct way is:

Come, look in the mirror, open your mouth wide, and then focus your gaze deep inside your mouth to see if there are any small white or yellow spots.

Additionally, you can also feel if there are any foreign objects in the tonsils and if you have bad breath. If there are all of them, and you suspect that they are tonsil stones, you can use a clean thumb, tongue depressor, or cotton swab to reach into the mouth, all the way to the side of the tonsils, and then gently press the tonsils to see if white or yellow substances can be squeezed out!

How to remove tonsil stones by oneself?

Method ①

Tilt your head back and let your tongue relax to see if you can spit out the tonsil stones.

Method ②

Rinse your mouth repeatedly to see if you can remove the large stones protruding from the surface of the tonsils.

Method ③

Using tweezers, cotton swabs, and tongue depressors, gently press around the white particles in the tonsils to gently squeeze out the tonsil stones from the recess or gap.

Due to the generally firm nature of stones, there may be slight bleeding during the cleaning process. Therefore, it is important to rinse your mouth promptly after removing tonsil stones to avoid local bleeding and infection. At the same time, it is recommended to use anesthesia spray before taking this method to prevent vomiting reflex.

Method ④

Using oral irrigation tools, such as the JIEYANG bigsmile mini Q portable water flosser, coupled with an extended nozzle, to flush the tonsils, can clean tonsil stones comfortably and without irritation.

The extended nozzle of the JIEYANG bigsmile mini Q portable water flosser is specially designed for users with tonsil stones based on the suggestions of some JIEYANG bigsmile brand old customers. The length from the bottom plane of the nozzle to the bending of the nozzle is 104.2mm, which is 41mm longer than the standard nozzle. It can easily reach in front of the tonsils, wash the tonsils, and clean tonsil stones.

In addition, this water flosser has a wide range of impact: 5-160PSI, which can be used by users of different constitutions and ages, and can also clean tonsil stones without damaging the tonsils.

I suggests that everyone can slowly adjust the water pressure from the lowest gear of the gentle mode, perform tonsil flushing, and clean tonsil stones one by one.

Kind reminder: If all these methods have been tried and still don’t work, Xiaojie advises everyone to give up cleaning themselves and seek help from a professional doctor!

How to prevent recurrence of tonsil stones?

Everyone knows that stones are prone to recurrence. So, when we have finally cleared the tonsil stones, we should not rest assured and also pay attention to preventing the recurrence of tonsil stones in our daily lives.

So, how can we prevent the recurrence of tonsil stones?

  • A light diet, regular sleep patterns, and a healthy lifestyle can effectively prevent the growth of tonsil stones.
  • Don’t open your mouth and breathe. Breathing with your mouth open not only makes your face look ugly, but also makes your mouth dry, leading to the growth of bacteria and the formation of stones in your tonsils.
  • Maintain oral hygiene. Remember to brush your teeth, rinse your mouth after meals, and use methods such as dental floss and water flosser to maintain oral hygiene, which can prevent food residues from accumulating in the tonsils and prevent the occurrence of tonsil stones.

JIEYANG bigsmile mini Q portable water flosser, equipped with 1400 times/minute high-frequency pulse technology and 0.54mm ultra-fine water column, can not only clean tonsil stones, but also conveniently and efficiently clean the mouth, remove dental plaque, wash away food residue, and keep your mouth and tonsils fresh!

Finally, I hope that this JIEYANG bigsmile mini Q portable water flosser can help everyone self-cleaning tonsil stones, prevent tonsil stones, and embrace a healthy life with a new posture of exhaling fragrance!
