Debris in Tonsils – What Exactly Are They?

If you’re navigating through this site then you must be a sufferer of some sort of debris in your tonsils or throat. There are several reasons why your throat may feel like there is debris in it. You could have a cold; you could be a chronic smoker; you could have a throat infection; or you could have tonsilloliths.

Ask yourself this: do you notice small whitish yellowish balls on the back of your throat near your tonsils? Are these balls irritating your throat and also causing a foul smelling odor?

If you answered yes to either of these questions, then there’s a good chance you have tonsilloliths, or tonsil stones. These are whitish to yellowish balls of bacteria, food particles and other mouth debris that form together and get stuck on your tonsils.

How disgusting right?

You may feel like you’re the only person in the world suffering from this horrific embarrassment. Furthermore, you may never want to open your mouth in fear that the tonsilloliths are smelling up your mouth and ruining your social life.

In reality, that debris in your tonsils is actually more common than you may think. Millions of people have experienced tonsil stones. However, it’s not something people like to bring up around the dinner table.

You don’t have to suffer in silence. There are ways to get rid of this tonsil debris without resorting to closing your mouth and never breathing on anyone or saying anything again.

First of all, you need to practice good oral hygiene. If you are a sufferer of tonsil stones then you probably have larger tonsil crypts where the debris and bacteria can hide. You need to brush, floss and rinse away this bacterium at least twice a day. You should also gargle with salt water or lemon juice to really kick that bacterium to the curb.

If you can feel debris in your tonsils open up wide and try to cough them out. If that doesn’t work, grab a sharp tool such as a toothpick and try to scratch them out. This may take a little work but, eventually they will come loose.

Keep in mind that these white balls of nastiness are absolutely putrid and can make your mouth and your hands stink. Wash and rinse your hands and mouth after removing the tonsil stones.

You don’t have to be embarrassed to open your mouth. Kiss those tonsilloliths goodbye and you can be free to kiss anything (or anyone) you want!
