Laser Treatment: Bad Breath Cure

laser treatment for bad breath

What’s another bad breath cure?  A scientist in Israeli has suggested using laser treatment to get rid of bad breath.  Allegedly, this 15-minute technique has worked on 53 patients with chronic halitosis

These patients were said to suffer from a form of bad breath that wafted from the tonsil region.  Generally, bad breath is caused by the buildup of anaerobic bacteria around the line of the gums and teeth.  These bacteria release a certain malodor, but in some cases, these bacteria can breed in the tonsil’s grooves. 

It is said that the laser treatment goes to the tonsil’s infected regions and creates scar tissue that seals the grooves, preventing bacteria from proliferating in those areas.  According to sources, more than half of the patients were cured with one laser treatment, and the others needed two or three laser treatments.

Tonsil Stones (Tonsilloliths)

Friday, May 8th, 2009

Tonsil stones, also known as tonsilloliths, are caused by an accumulation of sulfur-producing bacteria and debris that become lodged in the tonsils. The debris, which can include mucous from post nasal drip, putrefies in the back of your throat and collects in the tonsil crypts (small pockets which appear on the surface of the tonsils).

Tonsil Stones and Tonsilloliths Can Be Prevented

Along with tonsil stones, when the debris combine with the volatile sulfur compounds produced by the anaerobic bacteria beneath the surface of your tongue, it can also create chronic Halitosis (and other bad breath and taste disorders).

Important: If you do not have your tonsils then you will not under most circumstances experience tonsil stones. However, this does not mean that you should run out and get your tonsils removed.

As we get older, tonsillectomies become increasingly dangerous; however, even if you have your tonsils removed, you will most likely still have bad breath! Why?

The sulfur-producing bacteria breeding beneath the surface of your tongue, which are integral to the creation of those tonsil stones, are the most likely candidates to cause bad breath!

So, even if you have your tonsils removed, unless you remove or hinder these anaerobic bacteria, you may still scare away people with your bad breath!

And, since you can’t have your tongue removed (at least not in the U.S.), there is a better idea. Fortunately, getting rid of tonsil stones is not that difficult…

How to Get Rid of Tonsil Stones

A simple combination of oxygenating tablets and nasal sinus drops will effectively eliminate tonsil stones without unnecessary tonsil surgery. Also, the occasional use of an oxygenating spray will help to immediately neutralize the anaerobic sulfur-producing bacteria on contact.

The Bad Breath Bible states that if you truly want to prevent bad breath then you must use oxygenating toothpastes and mouthwashes, and ideally a tongue scraper to effectively neutralize the anaerobic bacteria from the very back of the tongue.

When you use such an oxygenating toothpaste and mouthwash, you will experience a residual effect from the oxygenating tablets and nasal sinus drops solution, and it will stop the tonsil stones from ever forming again.
