If you ever wanted to know how to extract tonsil stones the best thing you can do is try to dislodge them using a Q-tip. The Q-tip helps get them out by knocking them loose from the pockets in the tonsils they are trapped in. The first few times you try to use this method you might experience a little gag reflex but this is normal. After a while you’ll be able to use the Q-tip without gagging.
Another way to get rid of unwanted tonsil stones is to push against them with a cotton swab until they eventually pop out. When you are using the Q-tip or the cotton swab to push these stones out from their hiding spots make sure you use a mirror and a flashlight to make getting them out even easier.
There are also easy to use tonsil stone removal tools that you can buy online to help rid yourself of these little annoyances. Removing tonsil stones on your own at home is definitely a smart choice when you know the right tools to use.
