Tonsil calcification: Sometimes when your tonsils become inflamed they produce small calcified excretions. The inflammation can be caused by a number of different things. Try gargling with warm salt water about 1 tbsp to 8 oz of water. It's best to see your doctor so that they can have a look in the back of your throat to make sure there isn't anything serious going on.
