So you have figured out you have those dreaded Tonsil Stones – “tonsilloliths” hanging around your mouth and want to know how to get rid of tonsil stones so they don’t give you any more discomfort and more importantly bad breath!
Good. Now that the problem has been found, let’s talk about what you can do and discuss a few ways of tonsil stone removal techniques and procedures.
* Some you can do on your own and some will require a doctor.
Common Procedures to Remove Tonsil Stones at Home:
- Gargle salt water and cough – hoping they pop out so you can spit them across the room at your friends.
- Use a Q-Tip to gently push them out.
- Stick your longest finger in your mouth and try and push them out.
- Waterpik – just like sand blasting your mouth.
How Doctors Deal With Tonsil Stones:
- Tonsillectomy – yup, yank em out for good!
- Tonsil Burn: this is where they literally burn your tonsils with a laser melting the tonsil crypts to together to form on big chunk of flesh.
Now, lets talk about why any of these procedures are not only ineffective but completely dangerous!
First off, you are risking serious infection by doing those procedures yourself. The salt water technique only works of you tonsil stones are big, which takes weeks to months to accumulate enough stone to spit out, in the mean time you scare away everyone with your stank breath.
The Q-Tip is ok, but you need a small mouth for it to work as they are sometimes not long enough – and again, you need weeks of tonsillolith build-up to get them to easily pop out.
* Watch the video below of a 12 yr old brave young girl named Claudia (dubbed the “rotten lil princess” by one mean commenter) who’s big sister made this gross video of “harvesting” her gnarly tonsil stones.
** GROSS **
This kid must have had tonsillitis and never knew she had those stones, look how big they are! The Q-Tip works for her, cause she has a small mouth and the swab is within reach. This will not work on most adults though and if your stones are in the opposite direction.
If you want to jam any objects in your mouth (including your dirty fingers – even if they are clean) to try and pop these suckers out then you are risking making things worse, you will see blood – that means you are risking infection! Don’t do it…
And the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser thing, nah. People have grumbled that it is too harsh and tears the flesh causing even more deformity and deeper cryptic tonsils – the last thing you want!
Now for good ole modern medical procedures. Having a tonsillectomy as an adult can be a dangerous operation just like any other, do you really want to go through all that? Hospitals are scary, some go in and never come back out except in a coffin. No thanks…
The other procedure is where the doctor will use a laser to melt the skin (cooking it really) to close up the crypts. If this is done right it can be effective, BUT in my opinion most doctors today are hacks and do a lousy job, they just don’t pay attention to detail anymore. Have this procedure done and it could make things worse!
Risking any kind of surgery is not a good idea as tonsil stones are not life threatening. Besides, the jaboni doctors could create more havoc than you bargained for – your mouth is not a car, taking it back cause they didn’t fix it right the first time is a lot more headache, don’t you think?
So, do you really want to know how to get rid of tonsil stones for good and keep them from coming back? I know you really don’t want to go through any medical producers that are costly and could be a hack job. And the techniques that could cause infection are out the window…
