Tips On Removing Tonsil Stones With Relief !

Dental issues are a big thing for every person – old or young. Today in
this article we are going to talk about dental issues and how to get rid
of them without wasting money.
Do you know what tonsil stones are? Referred to as tonsilloliths as
well, are the small and off-white waste that is found on the back of the
throat. They can often cause pain while swallowing, inflamed red
tonsils and bad breath.

Here are tips on getting rid of them.

Use an oral irrigator
You need a water irrigator that isn’t spraying too strong, nor too
little, because you need something to push the tonsil stones out of
their cavities. Just put the irrigator inside your mouth, and direct the
stream onto one visible stone while you dislocate it. If it hurts, you
need an irrigator with less water pressure power.

Gargling
Use mouthwash after a meal, since the tonsil stones usually tend to form
after leftover food is stuck in the tiny invisible holes. It’s best if
you use an alcohol-free mouthwash. Also, you could use a home-made
mixture of warm water and salt, since it since it dislocates bits of
food from the tonsil craters.

Gargling with apple cider vinegar
The acidic content is even stronger when it comes to breaking down
tonsils. You should make a DIY mixture, containing a tablespoon of apple
cider vinegar and a cup of warm water for better dissolving. Use it
after a meal.

Essential oils
Such as lemongrass and myrrh oil have excellent anti-inflammatory and
anti-bacterial properties, so they can be useful for cleaning tonsils as
well. Just add few drops on your toothbrush and brush those stones
away.

Yoghurt
Eating or drinking yoghurt can be useful for tonsils, since it contains
lactobacillus acidophilus and other beneficial probiotics, which can
prevent the creation of tonsil stones. This is a more preventive
approach, but you can use it to clean tonsils as well.

Carrots
Chewing carrots can increase the saliva in the mouth, which is basically
what’s needed to remove tonsil stones, because it is liquid and also
contains beneficial acids.

Cotton swabs
Removing the tonsils with cotton swabs should only be done in front a
mirror and only if you have a steady hand! Also, you should use a strong
or even a flashlight to better spot the tonsil stones. Poke the stones
that you see, but very gently with your swab and press on the tonsil
stone until you dislocate it. Then, gently pull it out of your mouth
with the cotton. Don’t push too much, and don’t be scared because
bleeding is most likely to happen, since this is an invasive method.

The use of a toothbrush
With the simple use of the backside of a toothbrush, try to carefully
lift the tonsil tissue and spot the leftovers. Push them away and gargle
with warm salt water for disinfection.

Antibiotics
Only after a consultation with a doctor, and only if you have severe
tonsil stones, you should use prescribed antibiotics, such as
penicillin.

Laser removal
Laser treatment can also be done, only at the doctor’s office and after a
consultation with him. However, this and the previous option should
always come last, after you’ve wasted everything on this list and
haven’t succeeded.

Doing a tonsillectomy
This is another medical approach to the problem and should be done in
cases with severe tonsil stones. Tonsillectomy is a simple and effective
procedure which is often used to remove severe and persistent tonsil
stones. The procedure itself is relatively low-risk and also, the
recovery period is short.
