11 Tips for Removing Tonsillar Stones and Breathing Away

Tonsillar stones are those small, whitish and smelly “stones” that usually appear at the back of the throat. Although the caseum do not present serious symptoms, they do cause some discomfort such as slight pain when swallowing food, redness and inflammation in the tonsils and bad breath.

In this post, the awesome.club indicates some ways to get rid of caseum on your own. In addition, we show you when you need to see a doctor and how you can prevent the problem.

1. Removing the caseum using cotton-tipped swabs

1. In addition to the flexible swabs with cotton tips, you will need:

2. Open your mouth, turn on the flashlight and direct the light into the throat. Do this in front of a mirror to get a better view of the caseum.

3. Stick your tongue out and say “Ahhh!” to contract the muscles in the back of the throat. This should help “push” the tonsils forward, making them easier to see.

4. Place the cotton-tipped swab under running water to make the cotton softer and prevent throat irritation. Do not touch the rod to the sink. Otherwise, you will run the risk of suffering from some contamination.

5. Touch the caseum smoothly using the cotton tip, pressing them until they are out of place. Then pull it out of the mouth also using the swab.

6. Be very careful, as some bleeding. If this happens, do not be alarmed, as a little bleeding is normal in these cases. However, it needs to be minimized. Remember, cuts and wounds can end up being infected by the same bacteria that caused the caseum.

7. Rinse your mouth with Water to ensure the removal of all the caseum, especially if you notice that the saliva is sticky. Then, just drink water for the saliva to return to normal.

2. Using oral irrigator

You can even use oral irrigators to get rid of the caseum. The jets of water force the amygdala “stones” out of their sockets. But for that, the device needs to be at its lowest intensity.

But before buying an irrigator, test it on the tonsils first to see if the jet is too strong. If the use causes pain, avoid the irrigator in order to remove the caseum.

Place the irrigator inside the mouth without touching the caseum, and turn on the device at the lowest intensity. Then direct the flow of water to a “stone” that is visible and hold it steady until the caseum is removed.

3. Gargle to remove and prevent caseum

Gargling with mouthwash after meals is another very helpful tip, as caseum can form from food residue trapped in the depressions at the back of the throat.

The most recommended thing is to gargle with mouthwash. no alcohol after eating. The movements of the throat in contact with the liquid will not only help to maintain the health of teeth and gums, but will also displace the tiny food debris.

In addition, a mixture of warm water and salt is also good for gargling as it helps to remove food debris from the pits of the tonsils. You must mix a teaspoon of salt in 150 ml of water, stirring until well mixed.

Gargle the salt water with your head tilted back. Salt water tends to relieve the discomforts caused by tonsillitis.

Another option is to invest in oxygenating mouthwashes, as they contain chlorine dioxide and natural zinc-based compounds, which help prevent bacterial proliferation due to the presence of oxygen.

However, oxygenating mouthwashes are very strong, so they should only be used once or twice a week. You can also supplement your oxygenating mouthwash with a regular gargle.

4. Gargle using apple cider vinegar

Vinegar has the ability to balance tonsil health due to its acidic composition. In a glass, dilute a little apple cider vinegar in water and gargle. Start by mixing a tablespoon of vinegar and a glass of warm water to gargle. Try doing this 3 times a day to help loosen the caseum faster.

However, it is worth noting that there are risks in using apple cider vinegar, including the possibility of suffering from digestive problems and cavities.

5. Using essential oils

Essential oils such as lemon grass it’s from myrrh may also help fight tonsil caseum because of their anti-inflammatory powers. and bactericides.

Start by diluting the essential oil in a conductive oil and apply 1 or 2 drops to the toothbrush that will be used to “sweep” the caseum. We recommend that you do not use the same brush used to clean your teeth, given the large number of bacteria involved.

6. Using a regular toothbrush

Using the back of the brush, carefully try to press the tissue of the tonsils in search of hardened caseum. Afterwards, gargle with salt water to prevent bacterial infections.

Regularly brushing the tonguejust like teeth, we can considerably reduce the concentration of bacteria in the mouth and prevent the formation of future “stones” in the tonsils.

7. Consuming yogurt

Yogurt is a great way to avoid tonsil caseum because it contains lactobacillus acidophilus and other beneficial probiotics, each with specific health properties.

Probiotics help fight the bacteria that cause the formation of “pebbles” in the back of the throat.

8. Chewing carrots

Eating carrots stimulates saliva production, which in turn leads to the reduction and elimination of tonsil caseum.

9. Seeking medical help

As much as treatments on their own can help, it’s always important to talk to a doctor. These professionals can use tonsillectomy, a simple procedure for the removal of tonsils, leading to a significant reduction in the appearance of caseum. It is relatively low risk, requires a short period of recovery and, in the first few days, can cause some pain and bleeding. But the decision whether or not to remove the tonsils must always be taken with the support of an otolaryngologist, who will take into account the pros and cons of the intervention.

10. Taking certain antibiotics

Also, you might consider using antibiotics, always after consulting your doctor, to fight persistent or severe caseous. Several antibiotics, such as penicillin, can be used in such cases. However, they are not always effective in treating the main cause of the problem, which is the accumulation of food debris in the tonsils.

11. Laser treatment

If possible, ask your doctor about options involving treatment laser, as the tissues that support the deep depressions of the tonsils can be removed with a laser. The procedure evens out the surface of the region to eliminate the bags that accumulate food remains. And don’t forget that this type of treatment carries risks and should be done by a qualified professional.

Good oral hygiene can prevent the appearance of tonsil stones. Brush your teeth and use dental floss and mouthwash regularly.
