Best Treatment Options - How To Remove Tonsil Stones

When you are looking for different solutions and methods of how to remove tonsil stones, there are a few things that can be done. Many people will find that they are most likely going to experience bad breath (halitosis) as a result of the stones, but other than that, there is not too much seriousness for medical attention or having to treat the stones, unless they progressively get worse. So, considering these treatment options might help you get rid of, or at least minimize, the frequency of the stones, which will help eliminate the bad breath that comes with them.

Using a q tip to swab at the back of your throat is one of the easiest ways to clean and remove the stones. You have to be gentle in doing so, but this is likely to get rid of a majority of the stones, and will help clear out the stones from the back of your throat. Another options is to use your finger, but in doing so, it has to be extremely clean, and you have to be very gentle, as the tonsils are gentle, and it will hurt if you apply too much pressure to the area.

Using a water pick is also a great way to eliminate tonsil stones. The pressure that the pick provides is greater than what you can get with the q tip or your finger, and since it is water that is applying the pressure, you can go with a more direct approach at clearing up the stones. Using your toothbrush and swabbing the area is also an easy way to loosen the stones, and by rinsing afterwards, you will find that this is also going to clear away a large portion of the stones that are found around the tonsils.

In the event you can't eliminate them on your own, you may want to consider visiting an ENT (ear nose and throat doctor), to determine if the problem is more severe than bad breath, and whether or not surgery has to be performed to remove the stones. So, if you are not able to get rid of them on your own, there is the possibility that the stones are a bit more severe than simply causing bad breath, and if it is a persistent problem, or something that is painful, you will want to visit a specialist to determine the next steps to taking care of the problem.

Regardless of which of these methods you use (or using a few of them), for most cases, these stones are not dangerous to your health, and are simply going to be an inconvenience due to the bad breath. So, if you are looking for the best, easiest, and quickest solutions on how to remove tonsil stones, these are some of the simple methods you can go about removing them. You do not need high tech equipment, and it is rather simple to get rid of the tonsil stones, if you know how to target them.
