Tonsil Stones are also known as tonsil calculi, tonsilloliths or tonsilliths and are formations of hardened and calcified debris (such as bacteria, dead cells and mucous) stored in pockets and crevices of the tonsils. They tend to occur when people have chronic and repeated bouts of tonsillitis. They usually have an putrid odour and taste just as bad and come in different sizes and can even be as large as a quarter!
Tonsil Stones Symptoms
Symptoms of Tonsil Stones include the following :
- A sore throat and trouble swallowing
- Swollen Tonsils
- White/Yellow deposits in the crevices of your tonsils
- Bad Breath
- Ear Pain
Causes of Tonsil Stones
Your tonsils are full of crevices, called crypts, where debris such as food, dirt, mucous, bacteria, dead cells and other particles can get trapped. Most of the time they will be swallowed and won’t cause any further problems but occasionally if the debris gets trapped in the crypts the formations may grow. The debris may harden and calcify and form white/yellow formations known as Tonsil Stones.
