Tonsil stones and tooth extractionI have been reading through the threads trying to see if anyone has experienced what i'm going through now.
Several years ago I suffered with tonsiliths and then they stopped. All great and fine and dandy.
4 weeks ago I got horrid toothache, going into week 2 of pain I started to get a foul taste in my mouth and eventually on friday 13th I had it taken out.
On the Saturday I dared to look and noticed instead of a blood clot there was a whitish fleshy lump in there, accompanied by a putrid smell and taste in my mouth.
Last night I was fed up of it and used a tooth pick to remove the white lump. To my surprise it was a large tonsilith.. the smell had me reeling and I had to lie down from feeling sick.
Today more have appeared only deeper and unreachable by toothpick. How can they have travelled through my jaw and into my tooth cavity? I am astounded.
3 years ago I had to have a salivary gland removed (same side of jaw)because of a large calcified stone growing in there. Could it actually have been a tonsilith and if so, HOW?
I am very confused as to how they travel, occur, and why they smell so foul.
Any helpers or similar experiences anyone?
