Tonsil stones

Homeopathy treatment for Tonsil stones

Tonsil stones, also known as tonsilloliths, are calcified masses that can form on palatine tonsils. There are three types of tonsils:

  • palatine – on the sides of throat
  • pharyngeal – at the back of  throat
  • lingual – found at the back, or base, of  tongue


Tonsil stones develop when bacteria and other debris get trapped in tiny crevices on the tonsils.

Because tonsillectomies are less common now than they once were, more people have tonsils and therefore more people are vulnerable to tonsil stones.

Removing tonsils to prevent tonsillitis used to be a very common procedure.


Many people with tonsil stones have no symptoms.

If symptoms occur, they include:

  • a very bad smell when the stones appear, because tonsil stones provide a home for anaerobic bacteria, which produce foul-smelling sulfides
  • a sense that something is stuck in your mouth or in the back of your throat
  • pressure or pain in your ears

Tonsil stones can look like small white or yellow flecks at the back of the throat. A large stone may be visible. Some are large enough that they jut out of the tonsils, resembling tiny rocks trapped in the mouth.


Tonsil stones are mostly harmless, even when they cause discomfort.

They may, however, signal problems with oral hygiene. People who do not brush their teeth or floss regularly are more vulnerable to tonsil stones. The bacteria that cause tonsil stones can also cause tooth decay, gum disease, and oral infections.
