Tonsil stones and bad breath

It's well known that bad breath can be caused by periodontal gum disease, where tiny pockets form between the tooth and gum. Food and salivary debris gets trapped here, rots and releases foul smells produced by bacteria involved in the rotting process. What is less well known and understood is in fact far bigger and deeper holes can form in the tonsils, often after tonsillitis. So the food trapping and rotting can be quite significant from collected debris and food, otherwise known as tonsil stones.

These tonsil cracks and holes can be lasered away under local anaesthetic spray in clinic, a lunchtime treatment where immediate return to work is usually possible, and low levels of post op pain treated with paracetamol. HealthHub is on 02078709166 to discuss this.
