Small plaque balls in tonsils
Small plaque balls in tonsils
Author: Rebekah Leinin
I find and feel small and large yellowish white like balls of plaque lodged in my tonsils every day. i have tried gargling,brushing my teeth 24/7 and everything else, I have found that if you tape 2 tooth pics together to make one long one, you just push on the ball of plaque and it squeezes out the other side. My tonsils also hurt regularly. I have looked everywhere to find out what it is and still no answer.

I had these for years and they got worse as I got to my late teens. In the end, I had throat infections almost every month and had my tonsils out at 19. Its the best thing I ever did but the recovery was pretty painful. Worth it though - I know other people that get them too.

I seem to get these at random times throughout the year in month-long spurts, plus or minus. I have found that my breath gets worse than usual during these spurts - which is understandable since they stink and they're right there in the middle of your windpipe. I found elsewhere that their scientific name is "tonsilolith", in case you want a more complete web search. I have no clue how to prevent them or treat them. They just come and go. Any hints can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a great day!

That's tonsilloliths with 2 L's, by the way.

Instead of 2 toothpicks taped together, try using a stir stick from Starbucks. They are long enough and work great!

I have used a blackhead/pimple remover tool found in the cosmetic section. I believe they are by the tweezers and toenail clippers in wal mart. I use the "blackhead" side because it is smooth and rounded. I also use tongue depressers to hold my tongue done while doing this. I have become actually pretty "talented" at removing these so I can hold a flash light in one hand... keep my tongue study... and use the blackhead remover to get them out.

has anyone used the tonsil stone remedy that highlighted on bottom of this page. u have 2 click on it 2 view.
I really don't know what 2 do anymore about these nasty balls. At this point im considering trying this tonsil stone remedy or getting my tonsils removed...
It's really effecting my social life. I throw up from how disgusted i get from these things. My breath is horrible apparently, according 2 my bf. It's really just embarrassing! :-(

Normally, any food or fluid we consume has to be "sampled" by the tonsil. Over time, bits of the stuff we consume pile up inside the crevices of the tonsils but the lining of the crevice must automatically separate and fall out with the debris build up of food and descend into the food pipe and then the stomach.
When this does not happen, the stuff just keeps building up anyway. It is not harmful and normally only a matter of time before it will fall out by itself.
In case of infection, pain, odor/smell or any other complication, it's a good idea to visit an ENT specialist who will either carefully take the stuff out, or recommend and perform a minor surgery to remove the tonsils.
Usually though, gargling with warm water with/without salt is recommended.
Please do not try toothpicks/cosmetic products/Starbucks stir sticks. You almost certainly develop an infection or hurt yourself. It's really the wrong place you wanna see blood oozing out from, or find pus the next day.

I also have the same problem as all of you!!! It is a terrible thing I know! I have found that dipping a q-tip in mouth wash, sticking out your tongue out as far as you can and inserting the q-tip into the tonsil is helpful! Do it several times, then gargle with warm water... then take the end of a toothbrush and massage around the front of the tonsil area pushing all the bacteria to the opening of the tonsils where it can be seen, then repeat the process!~ and when brushing your teeth be sure to brush the hell out of your tongue!!! Someone else commented that you can use a water pik,.... I got 2 of them & the pressure of the water was so extreme it actually made my tonsils bleed! Even when it was on the lowest setting,... ???? Good luck!

I have suffered from these nasty critters [tonsil stones] for years. I just accepted that I would always have them. However, since using the tonsil stone remedy I learned about on tonsilstones.net, I have not experienced even one tonsil stone.
