Now, if you do not have your tonsils, then you will NOT (except for rare exceptions) experience tonsil stones. Aside from that, even if you have your tonsils removed, you will most likely still have bad breath.
These tonsil stones are caused by an accumulation of sulfur-producing bacteria and debris that becomes lodged in the tonsils. These tonsil crypts are small divots or pockets which appear on the surface of the tonsils, in which the tonsil stones may accumulate.
The sulfur producing bacteria breeding beneath the surface of your tongue, integral to the creation of those tonsil stones, are the most likely candidates to cause bad breath! Even if you have your tonsils removed, unless you remove or hinder those anaerobic bad breath causing bacteria, your friends may still exhibit those tell-tale signs that you have bad breath!
Tonsil stones can create a condition known as Halitosis, which is a stubborn bad breath and taste disorder many people suffer from.
When this debris combines with volatile sulfur compounds (VSC’s) which are produced by the anaerobic bacteria beneath the surface of your tongue, along with the tonsil stones, you develop the condition known as Halitosis, more commonly known as bad breath!
