It is unnecessary to treat tonsil stones as they generally are not related to any health consequences.

They are uncomfortable and smell bad, which can be a significant social liability. The best way to get rid of them is with a water pick, assisted by a mirror and a penlight. If you try something like a half-unbent paper clip, be careful not to hurt yourself.
