White spots on your tonsils are tonsil stones and some people don’t even know that they have them. They are a result of accumulation of mucus, dead skin cells, bacteria and food particles. Tonsil stones have either white or yellow color and a fragile structure and are responsible for pain in the throat, difficulty swallowing and breathing and bad breath as well.
People who don’t take care of their oral health and suffer from chronic inflammation are at an increased risk of tonsil stones. Surgical removal of the tonsils (tonsillectomy) is the usual treatment for the stones, but the surgery doesn’t guarantee that the stones won’t reappear. But removing the tonsils creates a new set of problems as you’re removing a vital part of your immune system that prevents the development of bacteria and viruses in the body.
Tonsil stones can be removed with far less invasive methods you can perform at home and these are the best ones:
In order to get them out push a q-tip against the stones. You need to be gentle, but apply firm pressure – once you’ve applied enough, they should go out of their pockets.
This device works just like string flossing because it has an engine, water store and a flosser. You need to put the spout over the pockets in your tonsils and blow gently on the minimal setting to force the stones out.

It is similar as the q-tips. To remove the stones that are not visible point the tip at the crevices in the tonsils and squirt the mixture. The liquid is mixture of equal amounts of water and 3% hydrogen peroxide which will also disinfect your tonsils during the process.
Oral probiotics can defeat the bacteria in your oral cavity which are sometimes the main reason for tonsil stones. You should take S. Salivarius K12 probiotic supplements against tonsil stones. You need to mix it with 4 oz. of warm water, then put a bit of the mixture in your mouth and tilt your head back so it reaches the tonsil stones. After 10-15 seconds spit out and repeat the process several times a day. If you chew gums and toothpaste they can also help you eliminate tonsil stones and the problems caused by them.
