See below: Tonsil stones(tonsilloliths) form in patients with a history of recurrent tonsillitis or who have ongoing inflammation of the tonsils.Small stones are asymptomatic.Larger ones can cause pain,halitosis,bad taste,difficulty swallowing and earache. Small stones can be removed with a toothpick,oral irrigation or vigorous gargling.Tonsillectomy is only cure>http://bit.ly/1Daq0LN..http://bit.ly/1hKZ4wy ...Read more
Various ways: I have known patients who were bothered by their "tonsil stones" who used a tooth-pick to clean out the tonsil stones; others reported that they used a "water pik" with great success. Try also daily gargling with salt water (saline) containing manuka honey - "nature's antibiotic". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It's not the tonsil: The tonsils create tonsil stones or tonsilths because of the crypts in them that trap bacteria and food (see my other taps). If you continue to get tonsil stones you may have residual tonsil tissue (possible but unlikely) but you can also get tonsil stones or tonsilths in the lingual tonsil which is at the very back part of your tongue. Debris also collects in the vallecula - above voice box. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes, If you can...: Find a surgeon who'll do it. Most surgeons i know do not like to remove tonsils on adult males unless there is a clear indication because the risks of bleeding are higher. I would start you on Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) oral rinse for at least a couple of months before entertaining the possibility. ...Read more
I'm 16 and constantly getting large tonsil stones. Every time I remove them my crypts seem to get larger. What should I do beside removing tonsils?
Not much: If you have a bad taste in the mouth and a bad odor to your breath, tonsillectomy will cure the problem. I do not think you can do anything to make the crypts of the tonsils smaller. This problem is certainly an indication for tonsillectomy. Consult an ENT surgeon for an opinion. ...Read more
