Is this coming from my teeth

Posted on Friday, Oct. 2nd 2009 3:19 PM by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Hygiene 5 Comments »

Yesterday when I woke up I coughed out a little white chunk.  Looks a lot like cottage cheese.  Anyway I have had this happen to me before and it smell and tastes really bad.  I do not know what it is or where it is coming from.I am worried that my breath must smell just a bad but no one as said anything to me about it.

Is it coming from my teeth?  I brush and floss daily.   Although it does not happen all the time it is gross when it does.  Has anyone had this happen to them?

    This can happen partly from having poor dental hygiene habits. If you open your mouth wide enough you will see your tonsils. Back by your tonsils you have naturals pits that can collect bacteria. This happens when food particles get stuck in this pits.

    Over time it builds up into that white cottage cheese chunk. Look into getting a good antibacterial mouthwash. Use the mouthwash to gargle with. Gargling is important in order to get what is stuck in the back of your throat.

    Some people only swish the mouthwash around in their mouth but that only helps their teeth and tongue not the back of the throat.

    Do you have a sinus infection? I ask because I get the same thing but only when my sinuses is acting up. I is gross but my sinus doctor said it was nothing to worry about.

    I call them tonsil stones. Though I am not sure that is what they are really called. Like the one reply stated you get them because food bits get stuck in the crevices of your tonsils. Over some time forming that white chunk. They can lead to irritation if you get them often.

    If you start feeling like you have one then just gargle with mouthwash or warm salt water to loosen it from your tonsil. If this is a chronic issue for you it may start to make your breath smell bad. At that point see your doctor to get additional advise.

    Do not even worry about it. It happens to a lot of people. It is really no big deal. Just gargle a little more since you stated it does not happen much I am sure gargling will help slow it down if not stop it from happening all together.

    One way to avoid getting that gross little thing is by, chewing your food slower, and drinking more liquids when you eat.

    The food bits is getting caught in the pits of your tonsils, but if you wash down your food (preferably drinking water) this will help stop that from happening.
