Tonsil Stones and Pregnancy

 By: Ricky Martin
Many pregnant women who suffer from bad breadth might be due to tonsil stones. Since tonsilloliths and halitosis are provoked due to same elements they can be linked to each other. Nearly ninety percent of chronic bad breadth is found to be caused due to oral cavity bacterial imbalance. It is found that tonsil stones are also composed of fungus, mucus, dead cells, putrefied debris of food and bacteria. These bad odour producing elements can get accumulated inside tonsil crypts (pocket type cavity) where smell producing calcareous matters can be formed continuously. Because of this sulphur compounds get released constantly inside the crypts and can be let out when speaking and breathing. This results in severe and persistent bad breath in both normal and pregnant women.

There are even people who might not even know that they have tonsil stones or tonsilloliths. It might be because of the stone size being too small making them difficult to feel or view. Most often these types of tonsil stones can get dislodged naturally from the cervices or crypts and get swallowed. Very few might face major inconvenience due to the stone over growth and might require removing manually for getting some relief. Removal of tonsil stones might not be suggested for women during pregnancy as it can lead to other problems.

Chronic bad breath also called as Fetor Oris is most often associated with poor oral hygiene, improper flossing and conventional brushing with little or without any effect in enhancing breath smell. Fetor Oris is caused due to opportunistic germs over populating in mouth along with stagnating mucus in the throat back and in sinus region, tonsil stones, gum disease, bacteria getting collected inside lingual tonsils and uncleaned residue of food.

The bad breath in women during pregnancy along with tonsil stones are mainly caused by germs known as anaerobic bacteria that are intolerant to oxygen. This means that such bacteria look out for regions in the mouth that are low in oxygen or without it. Tonsil crypts, deep inside tongue crevices, under gum line, in stagnating mucus, in cheek bio films, around teeth, roof of gums and mouth are such places.

These anaerobic bacteria are found to reproduce or breed exponentially and too in the presence of sugar substances and proteins. There are nearly two various kinds of bad breath producing bacteria releasing unique sulfur composition. The odour of volatile sulfur compounds can be very similar to feces, decaying flesh, vegetables and so on. Conventional flossing and brushing might not do much help for treating the condition and hence requires a very specialized approach with special tools to get good relief.

Home Remedies for Curing Tonsil Stones
Tonsillectomy not only can lead to various health problems later but also does not come at a cheaper price. The surgery can also hinder day to day activities for some time. Hence, it is avoided most often. In fact, there are natural and scientifically proven ways to get rid of tonsil stones so they never return. It's absolutely not necessary to go for a long, drawn out surgery or wasting your money on expensive nasal sprays and tablets.
