Who is Prone to Tonsil Stones?
The risk of tonsil stones is much higher in people who suffer from chronic inflammation of the tonsils, people who have big tonsils and people who do not practice a good oral hygiene. Tonsillectomy or the surgical removal of the tonsils is the conventional treatment for tonsil stones.
Unfortunately, even if you choose this way in order to get rid of your tonsil stones, you need to know that this procedure does not guarantee that your tonsils will not reoccur.
You are going to remove a part of the immunity which is needed to prevent bacteria and viruses from entering the body by choosing to eliminate the tonsils.
How to Eliminate the Tonsil Stones in the Right Way?
You are able to perform other less invasive methods of removal besides surgery. These ways are even better since you will be able to achieve your goal in the comfort of your own home. We recommend you to try the following methods:
You can easily remove the tonsil stones if the Q-tip is big and visible enough so that you can reach the back of your throat. Using the Q-tip, try to gently push the visible area of the tonsils until they are dislodged.
Practice this method in front of a mirror. The stones should pop out from behind the tonsil pockets when you apply enough pressure.
