Tonsils are usually found somewhere at the back of our throat. They are usually part of the immune system of the body. Tonsils stones are usually small and are found there. Most of these tonsil stones don't come with my but they are said to cause awful breath.
Tonsils prevent bacteria and other substances from reaching into the oral cavity of a person.
When bacteria is able to penetrate through to the oral cavity, tonsil stones are then formed.
Tonsils stones are also said to cause sore throat that makes you feel pain when you try to swallow something.
Today I will teach on ways to prevent yourself from getting tonsil stones.
Make use of a water irrigator that don't allow tonsil stones to form in the back of the throat. The water should be aimed towards the stones at a low pressure to make the stones loose. This should be done with care to prevent you from coughing.
Taking a sip of non-alcoholic mouthwash and then you swish it in mouth helps to get rid of tonsil stones and also helps to prevent bacteria from getting into your mouth. When there is less bacteria, this means that tonsil stones have a less chance to survive.
Gargle salty water in your mouth for some few seconds to help get rid of the tonsil stones. Do not put too much of salt because it has it's side effects. Add half of a teaspoon salt to water and use the mixture.
You can also add apple cider vinegar to warm water and gargle in your mouth. The side effects of this method is that you are likely to get tooth cavity and digestion issues.
Another method to use is to brush your tongue to reduce risk if bacteria getting in. When using a toothbrush, make sure to use the smooth side to remove the tonsil stones without causing damage.
