"bad breath balls" refers to the smelly, yellowish-white balls that form
in the back of the mouth. they are typically smaller
than a pea and have
a color similar to that
of sesame seeds. they are also extremely
pungent and likely
contribute to halitosis though they are generally
harmless and create only
a minor nuisance. bad breath balls are also coughed up from time to time--often to the surprise
of those who are willing to give them a whiff. bad breath balls are more formally referred to as tonsilloliths or tonsil stones.
