2. Using an oral irrigator

Using an oral irrigator

Oral irrigators also called a dental water jet or a water flosser, which uses a high-pressure stream of pulsating water to remove plaque and food stuck between teeth. You can use these oral irrigators like a water-pick to push tonsil stones out of their cavities. Just make sure you use it on its lowest setting.

It is recommended that you test an oral irrigator out first on your tonsils. If the spray is too strong, it can be really painful. Then you need to avoid using it to get your stones out.

Place the irrigator inside your mouth near the stone but without touching it. Switch on the irrigator and direct the stream of water onto the stone until it has been dislocated.
