In brief: 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".
