Severe Bad Breath Even If You Brush Your Teeth… Should Be Suspected Of’tonsil Absence’

As the time spent wearing masks increases, more and more people are worried about bad breath. Most bad breath gets better with thorough oral hygiene. However, if your mouth smells bad even after brushing your teeth and gargle, you should suspect a disease. Among them, the most prevalent disease is tonsil stones.

Tonsil stones are caused by the buildup of food debris or bacteria in a small hole in the tonsils.
It can occur to anyone, but poor oral hygiene can lead to more bacterial growth. Chronic tonsillitis or a disease such as rhinitis or sinusitis causes a runny nose to fall behind the neck.

If you have tonsil stones, you can have a bad breath and feel a foreign body when you swallow food. It may complain of pain in the ear. Professor Lee Young-chan of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Kangdong Kyung Hee University Hospital said, “It is not a life-threatening disease, but if you actually experience it, the stress is very severe.” said.

In most hospitals, stones are removed by suction treatment, but recurrence is frequent. Usually, once a month, or every six months, you will see a hospital and have the stones removed. Although the stone is removed and the hole is closed through laser or drug treatment, the most effective treatment is surgery to remove the tonsil itself. If you suffer from tonsillitis or other tonsillitis more than 3 times a year, and if the recurrence of tonsil stones is too frequent and problems such as pain, extreme bad breath, and foreign body sensations persist, consider surgery.

Tonsilectomy is a surgery that many children do, but adults often complain of extreme pain after surgery. Recently, a lot of surgery has been performed through a cobbler that can reduce pain after surgery. Tonsillectomy through a cobbler is a surgical method in which tonsils are excised from the muscle layer using low-temperature heat generated by radio-frequency. Less pain and bleeding after surgery than conventional surgical methods.

Professor Lee Young-chan said, “To prevent tonsil stones from accumulating frequently, you should pay attention to oral hygiene management. It is important to brush your teeth immediately after eating, keep your mouth clean with gargle solution, and drink water frequently.
