Tonsil Stones at Home Removal - A Waterpik Gets the Job Done

Updated on March 9, 2012

How to Remove Tonsil Stones at Home with a Waterpik

Have you heard about this method of removing tonsil stones from your mouth without gagging or making it unnecessarily painful? It's very effective and it cleans your entire mouth and the result is that you can enjoy a nice fresh breath without stinking tonsil stones.

In helping people to understand more about this condition I occasionally come across effective tricks and methods that sufferers have developed. The method described on this page one of these old proven and effective methods.

It involves something called a waterpik.

A waterpik is a tool that almost every dentist uses to flush out bacteria and debris that gets trapped in various places in the mouth. Besides cleaning your teeth, a waterpik is very effective in flushing out tonsil stones trapped in your tonsils. You don't have to worry about triggering the gagging reflex or damaging the soft tissue of the tonsils, a waterpik will remove the stones with ease.

Is the waterpik expensive and where do you buy it?

A waterpik can be found on amazon and it costs around $40 - $50. I'm sure that you can find other similar machines that are even cheaper. I've added a link to amazon below so you can take a look for yourself.

How do you use a waterpik to remove tonsil stone deposits?

It's very easy, you simply fill the waterpik up with water, and then aim the waterpik "mouthpiece" at the tonsil pockets inside your mouth. You might need to adjust the power depending on the size of your tonsil stones. The waterjet will effectively rinse any debris out of the tonsils and in the process improve your overall dental hygiene and remove the most likely cause for bad breath.

This method is very effective and it goes fast. While using a waterpik I also recommend you to read this page about tonsil stones. It discusses the cause for it and what can be done to prevent them from forming.
