Things to Know Before Removing Tonsil Stones

Monday, June 16th, 2014

before removing tonsil stones

Tonsil stones are white or yellowish clumps of bacteria that become lodged in the back of the mouth. Few people – even doctors – realize what they actually are, so if you have them or are not sure what they might be, you’re not alone. Health reports estimate around 6 percent of the U.S. population suffers from these bacteria buildups, a culprit of long-lasting bad breath, throat soreness and daily annoyance.

There are home remedies as well as dentist removal services available, put before you try to dislodge the tonsil stones, it’s helpful to know the following things:

What are the causes? 
Also termed tonsilloliths, 
tonsil stones are typically caused by an accumulation of sulfur-producing bacteria and food debris, which can include mucus from post-nasal drip. The debris putrefies in the back of the throat, getting trapped in the tonsil crypts (small pockets that appear on the surface of the tonsils). 

What are the symptoms?
The most common symptoms of tonsilloliths are 
bad breath and a sore throat. Since the lumps are made up of odor-filled bacteria, they tend to produce incessant halitosis. While smaller tonsil stones may not trigger obvious symptoms, larger ones may provoke tonsil swelling, difficulty swallowing and a “foreign body” sensation in the back of the throat. Be on the lookout for metallic taste, throat closing and coughing fits. They can irritate the throat and prompt pain that accompanies swallowing.  (more…)

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Please note: if you have already been lucky enough to win one of these bloggers giveaways, please refrain from entering in order to allow others to win. Thank you!

Kelly of Kelly’s Lucky You ask some really great questions (and gives the answers) in her TheraBreath review and giveaway.  For example, Do you have a friend with bad breath?  Do you suspect you might have bad breath yourself? Have you ever noticed people ‘give you your space’ when in a conversation?”  She’s reviewed our TheraBreath toothpaste, oral rinse and mouth wetting lozenges. Want to know the answer to the question above? Go here to find out, she’s posted a bunch of other really helpful Q&A. PLUS she’s hosting a giveaway.

In Evoluchun’s Miscellaneous’s TheraBreath review and giveaway, Danyale writes honestly about her thoughts before trying out products. “I really wasn’t sure what to expect from this although I did get it more for my mom than me due to I actually produce too much saliva so my mouth is hardly ever dry. Anyways my mom and my husband used these products and so did I so I could give you several points of view.” Three testers in one review! This has got to be good! Stop by here and see what they all thought, plus enter her TheraBreath giveaway for a chance to win some TheraBreath products of your very own.

Cristine Struble has posted a TheraBreath review in the Naperville Frugal Family Examiner. You can read it here. Cristine discusses how she uses mints to make sure her breath is fresh, but the mints themselves are a whole other issue. “But my biggest problem with breath mints is the flavor. I have digestive issues and mint flavoring is extremely hard on my stomach. When faced with no other choice, I’ll use the mint flavored products, but it doesn’t make me feel good. I’m always on the lookout for products that are extremely effective but don’t have that strong mint flavor.” We’ll she’s in luck because our TheraBreath oral rinse and toothpaste have very mild, natural flavors. But did she like our mouth wetting lozenges? Click on the link above to find out.

Cristine didn’t just post one, but TWO reviews for our TheraBreath products. But this time, she’s posted it on her own blog More 4 Mom’s Buck and she’s doing a giveaway too! Want to enter? Of course you do! Go here to enter and to read her complete review and giveaway.

Have You Ever Heard of ‘Tonsil Stones’?

Saturday, May 28th, 2011



REMINDER: Our BONUS PAK SALE is ALMOST OVER!
Save up to 60% OFF our everyday prices for just a FEW MORE DAYS. Click here.

Tonsil stones can be pretty nerve-wracking and are very common, particularly if you still have your tonsils (and according to our latest survey over 80% of you still do). They are a ‘cheesy’ substance that is secreted in pockets of your tonsils and at the back of the throat and are the product of billions of bacteria that live back there. People who get tonsil stones can cough one up at any time and when they do it’s typically very disconcerting. It’s like coughing up a noxious smelling chunk of yellow goo.

 

If you’ve ever experienced one of these tonsil stones, have no fear. It’s really not a big deal – many people get them. While they are pretty gross and can make your breath extremely smelly (that’s to be expected with bacteria waste), tonsil stones are also very easy to deal with.

 

Our THERABREATH TONSIL STONES KITS work to attack the bacteria responsible for forming tonsil stones and, with regular use, will prevent them from reappearing. It’s very easy to use, has no unpleasant side effects, and will make your whole mouth taste, smell, and feel fresh and clean. If you have ever been embarrassed by those little smelly globs, I suggest you give one of our THERABREATH TONSIL STONES KITS a try. As always, all of our products come with an unconditional money back guarantee. If you don’t think the kit does everything we claim and puts a stop to your tonsil stones issue, just send it back for a complete refund.

 

Best of all, our TONSIL STONES KITS are among the things you can choose as your FREE BONUS during our THERABREATH BONUS PAK SALE. That’s right – you don’t even need to pay for tonsil stones treatment if you buy one of our BONUS PAKS during this sales event and select a kit as part of your bonus. How’s that for a great solution to a nagging problem AND a great deal as well?

The Latest TheraBreath Blog Reviews and Giveaways

Friday, April 8th, 2011

The Frugal Fun Family has written a great TheraBreath review and is also hosting a giveaway. Michelle (the busy blogger) is also “a freelance writer and married mom of three boys.” Her review is very organized and easy to understand – check it out here. She used our products for several weeks in order to do a thoughtful, accurate review. She breaks each product down with a summary, photo , pros and cons and her conclusion. She’s also great about stating her opinions, like she prefers a very minty taste to her oral care products. Along with being a blogger, mom, wife and more, she’s also a great sister. “In fact, I even passed my products along to my sister for her to try–that was a big test for her, as she has a new boyfriend.” Visit Frugal Fun Family to see if we passed Michelle’s sister’s test.

Night Owls Perch has posted her TheraBreath review and giveaway. Not only is her review to the point and has a giveaway (who doesn’t want to win free stuff, right?) she’s also funny! You have to read the full review and enter the giveaway here. It’ll only take a few minutes and it’s definitely worth the trip. Aside from doing reviews and giveaways, Night Owls Perch also lets her readers know about special deals and coupons.

Do you love Girly Girl Giveaways? Then you have to stop by Monica’s blog of the same name to read her review and giveaway for TheraBreath. Check it out here. In her review, Monica discusses the difference of opinion that her and her husband had about our products. She also goes into detail about why our toothpaste does not foam or have a strong flavor – this gal definitely gets it! “It [the toothpaste] also does not foam up the way others do. These things did not bother me at all. Especially since I understand that most of those minty tastes in those products are made by added chemicals and sugars that only mask the odors of bad breath and may even cause odor causing bacteria to multiply faster. And as for the foaming, most toothpastes add the foaming agent sodium lauryl sulfate to appear like something is happening, in reality this additive has no real effect on how clean your teeth are getting.”
