tonsil stones

The tonsils are small masses commonly located in the palatine tonsils. They play an important role in defending against external agents such as viruses and bacteria by making antibodies to prevent their proliferation. Located at the bottom of the throat, they become infected during diseases such as angina.

There is also a condition, often benign, in the tonsils, called the Tonsilloliths. It manifests itself by the presence of tissues of granular aspects located after the tonsils, at the bottom of the throat. Over time, these grains form visible whitish "balls" or amygdal stones.

What are the reasons for the appearance of the tonsil stones? 
Tonsillolith  appears on the tonsils when bacteria, mucus, dead skin cells or food residues begin to settle in the tonsils. The tonsils that form are whitish or yellow in color and have a scaly texture similar to a cheese (hence the word "caséum" meaning "cheese" in Latin). This causes bad breath, throat irritation, difficulty swallowing food and difficulty breathing.

Who are the people likely to have tonsil stones (Tonsilloliths):?

If you suffer from chronic inflammation of the tonsils, if your tonsils are too large or if you have poor oral hygiene, you are likely to have casein on your tonsils. Conventional treatment for the tonsils is a tonsillectomy, that is, removal of the tonsils surgically. However, this does not guarantee removal of tonsilloliths. Also, when you are removed from your tonsils, your immune system that fights the entry of viruses and bacteria into your body is also affected.

So here are 4 effective ways to remove
tonsil stones without surgery!


The 4 effective ways to remove
tonsil stones:


The cotton swab: The simplest and economical way to remove the tonsilloliths is the use of cotton swab. However, to be able to use this technique, the tonsil stones must be large enough and visible, as you will not be able to reach the hidden tonsil behind your tonsils or too deep in your throat. If the tonsil stones are large enough, gently press your tonsils to remove them until they are dislodged.

Dental irrigation syringes: These syringes are syringes with a curved plastic tip that you can use to administer mouthwash or water on the casein. Point the syringe directly onto the pockets of the tonsils to clean them. More effective than the cotton swab, you dislodge the calculations introduced deep into your tonsils. Keep your head down during this procedure to prevent the tonsil stones from falling down your throat.

Hydroplane: You can purchase a water jet, which is a dental jet equipped with a water reservoir to remove all the residues housed in the oral cavity. Its use ensures impeccable dental hygiene and is recommended by dentists. It was created to replace the use of dental floss but may also be required to eliminate the tonsillar caseum. However, be careful not to be too aggressive when you use the dental jet on your tonsils, to avoid damaging them. Target your use in the pocket of tonsils where the casein is located.

Probiotics of the oral lactobacillus type: Based on bacteria that are healthy for health, pro-biotics are micro-organisms used to constitute the oral flora, but also the intestinal. They are regularly used as a complement when taking antibiotics to avoid the digestive discomfort of the treatment. But they can also help you to remove the white specks, characteristic of the tonsilloliths. The best way to use them in this case, is in the form of gargling by opening the pro-biotic capsule and using it as a mouth rinse. It is recognized that the oral pro-biotic composed of the S.salivarius K12 bacteria is the most suitable for this condition.
