Tonsil stones are often a source of concern for many people. Fortunately, there are several ways to get rid of them. You can try using a water flosser or mouthwash, which can help dislodge the stones. You can also try manual removal with a Q-tip or toothbrush. Your doctor might recommend minor surgery if these options fail to work. In some cases, a laser procedure may be necessary to remove tonsil crypts.
