In brief: Tonsil stones

The tonsils are filled with small nooks and crannies that can easily trap bacteria and other materials, such as mucus and dead cells.
This debris can then become hardened or calcified, creating white spots on your tonsils, which causes tonsiliths, otherwise known as tonsil stones. This most often happens in people who suffer repeatedly from inflamed tonsils. Go to see your doctor to get checked.
