What are these stinky bones that come out of my mouth?
Answer: Tonsillar Stones
The tonsils are located in the back of our throat. Tonsils help the body prevent and fight infections. They assist the immune system by trapping incoming bacteria and virus particles that are passing through the throat. Tonsillar stones tend to happen most often in people who have chronic inflammation in their tonsils, repeated episodes of tonsillitis and generalized large cryptic tonsils.
Cryptic tonsils are tonsils that have small pockets or pits called crypts. The crypts trap particles of bacteria, dead white blood cells, bacteria of fungi, food particles, excess saliva or mucous or smoking without a filter. These deposits are called tonsilloliths, tonsillar stones, or zots which can carry an unpleasant odor. They can cause discomfort, sore throat and bad breath. If small, however, they are often asymptomatic. In rare cases, tonsillar stones can become large enough to block air flow.
Effective ways to remove or dislodge them?
- gargle warm salt water
- press gently with a cotton swab
- oral irrigator
Unfortunately, the only way to CURE or PREVENT tonsillar stones are by surgically removing your tonsils (tonsillectomy). A tonsillectomy can be very painful and recovery lasts about two weeks or more.

And I thank them for their patience.
Dr Medina (and crew!) is the best dentist that has ever worked on my mouth!
They are focused on keeping you comfortable and to have as minimal pain as possible. They are also “teeth perfectionists”. Everything they do is done right. I’m so happy to have Season of Smiles as my dental office! They are amazing! 👍🏻
Professional and listen to my needs. I feel cared for and my teeth are in good hands.
Update. I had another appointment today 1/23. The process and outcome met all my expectations. Genial treatment in congenial surroundings.
It fit perfectly
Great job, Samantha. I learned something new by reading this.
