Tonsil Stones Blitz?

The Fact That Tonsil Stones Grow Is A Good News! Why?

Understand This If You Want To Prevent Tonsil Stones, Forever..

If you're a long-time tonsil stones sufferer, you should know that: You can easily get rid of tonsil stones, but it's hard to prevent tonsil stones from coming back.

First of all, you'll need to understand this - Why are you developing tonsil stones? The fact is that tonsils which are standing guard at the back of the throat, is born with you to protect the delicate tissues of our lungs and intestines from foreign invaders.

Many people would suggest getting the tonsils removed to prevent these white bumps in throat from forming, but you need to think of it this way - "Why would tonsil stones grow in the first place?"

Think about it. Tonsil stones grow because you've not been taking enough good care of your oral hygiene, there are too much mouth debris other than food that are trying to get into your body (Eg. food particles, bacteria, old cells from mouth lining etc) and these selfless protectors of yours (tonsils) take charge and trap them from getting into your throat.

True Fact About Your Tonsils

What we didn't understand is that the tonsils purposely accept the infections to prevent the organisms from traveling deeper.

So, How Do You Prevent Tonsil Stones From Developing, Ever Again?

Great Ways To Maximize Your Prevention Of Tonsil Stones

As said, it easy to remove your tonsil stones, but to get rid of tonsil stones & stop them from forming again? Not quite. And the sad fact is, most people choose to ignore tonsil stones until they get to grow bigger and bigger each time.

There are steps that can take you further where you'll get less "visits" from your old buddies - tonsil stones, and eventually until a point where they will just *Poof* lost in the wind. I suppose that's exactly what you want, yeah? So here's the list that you're looking for:

  • Maintain oral hygiene & good diet - Increase your immune system from the intruding bacteria.
  • Brush your teeth (& tongue) after every meal - Around 2 - 3 times a day. This dislodges the food particles that're stucked among your teeth & also keeps your mouth bacteria-free at all times
  • Use a tongue scraper after brushing your teeth - Stick your tongue out and get as far back as you can in order to remove accumulated bacteria that your toothbrush may have missed
  • Gargle with salt water or mouthwash - Do it for at least three minutes each day
  • Drink nothing but water - This keeps your mouth moisture at all times; Sodas and sugared teas etc, will all promote tonsil stone growth.
  • Remove dairy from your diet or limit its intake - Dairy food encourages the buildup of mucous and calcium, which are both elements of tonsilloliths.
  • Avoid eating 30 minutes before bed - Food particles lying around your mouth while you're sleeping can accumulate in the tonsils
  • Drink less alcohols - Alcoholic beverages will cause your mouth to become very dry and eventually leads to your bad breath. If you decided to drink after all, make sure you're done with your oral hygiene routines.
  • Stop smoking or cut down on it - Smoking will stop fresh breath right at its track, enough said

These above are things that you can achieve simply by adding them into your daily routines without much effort and money, visit the link below for a more complete and detailed guide about your tonsil stone preventions.

      I'm currently 14 years old. The tonsil stones have been happening since February. I thought they were some kind of horrible disease. I always have a metal taste in my mouth. It just really sucks because whenever I take them out in like an hour or so they come back! But thank god it isn't serious!

      @anonymous: I have just realized that I had tonsil stones my husband kept asking if I brushed my teeth and I kept saying yes every morning well I have noticed even if u follow these procedures and u can't see it there is still stones in your tonsils. I use a flash light to look in the back of my throat and stick my tongue out then I push my finger on and around where the hole and stones are and more comes out that I can't see cuz the hole is deeper then we think. It is so gross and I hate that I got them. I just pulled out two big stones out of my throat last night and afterwards I felt like I could swollow easier.

      This things smell awfully bad. I've had them for as long as I can remember and only learnt that they're known as tonsil stones a few years ago. I really hate them and wish there was a way of getting rid of them without the surgery.

      @anonymous: I have suffered from tonsil stones since I was 10 and am now 37 years old. The bouts are sporadic and unpredictable. Avoiding dairy and sugar is most helpful and has been during certain times in my life but I've also had episodes when I've continued to eat dairy and sugar and not had any stones at all. From my experience, it's always best to avoid the dairy and the sugar anyway. When I was younger, the stones were always visible. Now that I'm older, the stones are usually hidden deep in my tonsil folds and only become apparent when I cough it up or accidentally swallow it. I've gone through this for many years to know that whenever I have a sore throat, a dry cough, if it feels like there's a lump when I swallow, with occasional ear pain, it's most likely the presence of a tonsil stone. Another telltale sign is when all of a sudden people are taking a step back when I start to talk, really embarrassing! Then I know those things have come back! I have switched to non-alcohol mouthwashes such as Smart Mouth which has been helpful and try to drink plenty of water to keep my mouth hydrated since dry mouth just makes bad breath worse. I brush at least 2 times a day, use a tongue scraper, and floss every night. The salt water rinses do help when my throat is sore. I've even gargled with grapefruit seed extract which works well for many. I confess I do get lazy maintaining the whole regimen because it tends to go away for awhile and then all of a sudden reappear after months of being gone. Doctors don't seem to want to do anything for it unless it becomes painful or very difficult to swallow, many are reluctant to proceed with tonsillectomies as a remedy and even that isn't a 100% guarantee that they will never return. People also turn to laser resurfacing of their tonsils to smooth it out so nothing gets caught in the crypts or crevices. It's all extremely frustrating and irritating because some of us may not have it as bad as others but it's just as bad to have the problem to begin with! The point I'm trying to make is that good oral hygiene on top of the gargling (salt water, grapefruit seed extract, non-alcoholic mouthwash), tongue scraping, and the avoidance of dairy and sugar is ALL the best remedy and I need to make it a lifestyle change for the rest of my life since I doubt I'll ever convince a doctor to have my tonsils removed because I have periodic annoying bad breath. I figure I have to do it all to make sure it never comes back because there hasn't been a single sure fire method for me!

      I have suffered with these for a number of years - i have been free of them for the last 6 - 7 years but over the last 6 months or so, they are back - with a vengeance... they are disgusting!!!

      This is crap advice overall

      I stopped my "Tonsilloths" as they are properly called by cutting sugar out of my diet..

      started eating sugars again and back they came..I also have Candida...sort that and they go away...simple!

      @anonymous: I was thinking the same thing---I am a nurse, with invisalign and am obsessed with oral hygiene. I too have had horrific episodes of tonsillitis. I am wondering if my invisalign has anything to do with the stones. I just self diagnosed last night. And am quite grossed out to be honest! But I dont' believe it has anything to do with oral hygiene.

      @anonymous: i woke up one morning hacked while walking down hallway and then i heard a thump on the carpet. there she was. a t-stone the size of a dime! biggest 1 yet and disgusting. i came up with a temp but quick resolution. So anyone seeking immediate cleansing, do the following: buy quality cotton swabs, turn sink on, place tip in the running faucet until cotton inflates, stick tongue out as far as possible, use thumb & index finger to swab. The wet swab lubricates the entire cavity & helps those stones come out very easy. If u gently rotate while swabbing it insures a fresh spot on swab to pick up the t-stones and also prevents smashing them and spreading it like mayo. you'll be amazed at what you may find back there. After removing swab from cavity, throw it away. u don't wanna put bacteria back in there. its normal to go through 3 swab sticks per cavity. once you re done, gently rub a dry swab in there the same way as the wet swab. if you don't smell sulfur then you're clear. if you do smell sulfur, then its time to wet another new swab. although it's a temp fix, it really works. Just practice so u wont gag. and prepare to do this every 8 hours or after brushing. i do it after brushing to insure fresh breath. i can't wait to combine this websites tips with my swab technique. please remember to wet the swab because the back of your mouth is very tender. i want to know how it worked for u guys. e-mail me with your results sdscustoms@live.com

      @anonymous: I agree that it has something to do with postnasal drip! I too pride myself in having good dental hygiene and drinking only water. I also gurgle my mouth with salt water thrice a day. I noticed that since I've been doing nasal wash, the occurrence of stones have lessened but on months where the weather is very prone to allergies, they show up again. Also, try experimenting with different toothpastes. I use a herbal one and I believe this has also helped lessen the number of stones I get.

      @anonymous: I never had them either until after wisdom teeth removal. I didn't find it necessary to take the wisdom teeth out because they never gave me any trouble..

      anonymous 5 years ago

      I am baffled! As a dental hygienist I like to think I have pretty good oral hygiene so find it hard to believe tonsil stones are down to poor OH... Clueless as to why I get them, I did suffer tonsillitis when I was younger quite often, could this be the reason?

      @anonymous: If you are careful you can pick them out. With clean hands push up and out on your tonsils and it will squeeze them out or expose them, then pick them out and use mouthwash. You will wake up tomorrow without the bad breath.

      I have always had tonsil stones, but it seems as if the problem is getting worse. I don't know if it's because my hygiene has changed or what. But they seem to be getting bigger and it's bothersome when I can feel it with the back of my tongue. Actually, come to think of it, the problem got worse right after I got my wisdom teeth removed. *sigh* I'd like to get rid of this problem!

      I'll have to try these steps.. I hold a flashlight in one hand so I can see what I'm doing. Then, I use a plackers toothpick (on the other end of the floss) to dislodge the stones because it has a blunt tip. It removes them quite easily, especially in the beginning. It would be nice not to get them in the first place.

      @anonymous: I noticed i've been getting them a lot since I got a tooth extraction. Have had them in the past.. Can usually feel them, easy enough to scratch out I suppose but gross none the less. When I was much healthier I never got them. So good Hygiene and health is pretty much the cure.

      This site, to me, was extremely helpful with it's tips for preventing them. I was fed up with mine and I was actually able to remove them myself. If you have don't have a very strong gag reflex, you can take a q-tip, dip the end in warm salt water and put pressure of your tonsil and kind of squeeze them out. It id definitely tricky but well work the time spent doing it. I immediately noticed a difference!

      This is actually pretty good, and now I'm actually appreciating the fact that I have tonsil stones. Because of them I know that I'm not taking good (enough) care to prevent this. Now I feel that I'm taking better care, but I'm still working on removing the stones, although I'm having trouble just drinking water. My mom said, "The doctors will only remove your tonsils is you have plenty of sore throats. They won't remove your tonsils just because you want it." *Sigh* I'd rather cut out my tonsils myself then continue having these stones...
