Highly Effective Tonsil Stones Remedies
I had tonsil stones, or tonsilloliths, for years and years, and during that time I did a ton of research into finding the best tonsil stones remedy.
I suffered through all the symptoms: halitosis, coughing, and difficulty swallowing. I wasn’t comfortable in social settings because of my bad breath, which can really make a person self-conscious and depressed.
I didn’t want to have my tonsils surgically removed because it was really expensive for me, but I also didn’t want to go through the long and painful recovery period. So surgery wasn’t an option for me.
With that being said, surgery is an option for those that don’t mind putting up with the price tag and painful recovery process. If you’re interested in going this route, the process is called tonsillectomy. The surgery removes the tonsils totally, and requires about 3 to 4 weeks of rest. This doesn’t completely guarantee that the bad breath will not come back though.
When I started looking for a tonsil stones remedy I found many possible options out there. Some are practical but others could be a little dangerous if not done carefully.
Let’s talk about two tonsil stones remedies that have proven to be effective for many people.
Gargling a non-alcoholic based mouthwash has also been proven to be an effective remedy for getting rid of tonsil stones. Here’s how it works. Basically gargling mouthwash for a month could loosen the tonsil stones and make it possible to dislodge them easily from the tonsils. If the tonsil stones are loosened, it would be much easier to remove them.
For the do-it-yourselfers out there, you can do it the old-fashioned, which using a cotton swab, or any plastic rounded object, to poke out the tonsil stones. People using this tonsil stones remedy need to be careful though, as too much poking could make the tonsil bleed that could lead to infection. If you do get an infection, I highly suggest you get yourself to see a doctor right away.
For those who are afraid of hurting themselves, they can use a waterpik oral irrigator. A waterpik is often used for oral health and it also reduces bleeding gums and gingivitis. This tonsil stones remedy acts like hose that will forcefully remove the tonsil stones with water.
With this method this is a risk of getting an infection, in which case it’s likely that antibiotics would be needed.
