Tonsoliths: Usually these are on little importance. The white stuff is dead white cells and debris. If there is pain, Clear.ease Lozenges are good for reducing swelling. If you want to remove the white stuff, the oral irrigator that comes with the Hydro Pulse Nasal/Sinus irrigator is designed for removing these particles and reducing swelling of tonsils. Great for snoring too.
