Tonsilloliths that are and how to eliminate them [Eng|Esp]

Tonsilloliths that are and how to eliminate them [Eng|Esp].


Hello Hive community, today I want to comment on a very interesting topic; but at the same time a little unknown.

These are the tonsilloliths, those annoying little balls that we sometimes expel from the throat.

When brushing your teeth, have you sometimes noticed that you expel one of these and wonder what they are?

Today I bring you the answer and some ways to eliminate them at home.


First of all we must know what the tonsils are: the tonsils are formations of lymphoid tissue that are found in the throat and protect the body from infections, they fulfill an important defensive function.

These tonsils in their structure contain crypts or small holes where food remains, bacteria and minerals from saliva such as calcium are deposited.

These accumulations are taking the form of small white stones or calculations as they are also known.

Among the main causes of tonsilloliths are poor oral hygiene and smoking. Although the anatomy of the tonsils can also influence their appearance.

Negative effects produced by tonsilloliths are:

✅. Halitosis (bad breath).

✅. Sensation of a foreign body in the

✅. Occasional pain.


Before carrying out any treatment to eliminate these annoying calculi, it is necessary to know that the best way to eliminate this pathology is prevention.

A correct dental brushing as well as the use of mouthwashes and a correct cleaning of the tongue are the main measures to prevent its appearance.

Making mouthfuls of water with salt and gargling is usually quite effective: Prepare a liter of boiled water with half a tablespoon of salt and make the mouthwashes for 10 minutes three times a day.


Other ways to remove them can be directly with the toothbrush or an applicator, to do it this way you must be very careful not to hurt the tonsils since they are very sensitive.

Always remember to maintain proper oral hygiene to avoid this pathology. If none of the above options result and you present persistent discomfort, you should see a doctor.

Tonsilolitos que son y como eliminarlos [Eng|Esp].


Hola comunidad de Hive hoy les quiero comentar sobre un tema muy interesante ; pero a su vez un poco desconocido.

Se trata de los tonsilolitos esas molestas bolitas que expulsamos de la garganta en ocasiones.

Al cepillarte los dientes a veces habras notado que expulsas uno de estos y te preguntaras que son?

Hoy te traigo la respuesta y algunas formas de eliminarlos de en casa.


Primeramente debemos conocer que son las amígdalas: las amígdalas son formaciones de tejido linfoide que se encuentran en la garganta y protegen al cuerpo de infecciones, cumplen una importante función defensiva.

Estas amigdalas en su estructura contienen criptas o pequeños agujeros donde se depositan restos de alimentos bacterias y minerales de la saliva como el calcio.

Estas acumulaciones van tomando la forma de pequeñas piedras blancas o calculos como tambien se les conoce.

Dentro de las causas principales de los Tonsilolitos se encuentran la deficiente higiene bucal y el tabaquismo.Aunque la anatomia propia de las amigdalas tambien puede influir en su aparicion.

Efectos negativos producidos por los Tonsilolitos:

✅ Halitosis(mal aliento)
✅ Sensacion de cuerpo extraño en la
✅ Dolor ocasional.


Antes de realizar cualquier tratamiento para eliminar estos molestos calculos es necesario conocer que la mejor forma de eliminar esta patologia es la prevencion.

Un correcto cepillado dental asi como el uso de colutorios y una correcta limpieza de la lengua son las principales medidas para prevenir su aparicion.

Realizar buchadas de agua con sal y gargaras suele ser bastante efectivo:
Prepara un litro de agua hervida con media cucharada de sal y realiza los colutorios durante 10 minutos tres veces al dia.


Otras formas de eliminarlos puede ser de forma directa con el cepillo de dientes o un aplicador, de hacerlo de esta forma debe tener mucho cuidado de no lastimar las amigdalas ya que son muy sensibles.

Recuerde siempre mantener una correcta higiene bucal para evitar esta patologia. De no resultar ninguna de las opciones anteriores y presentar molestias persistentes debe acudir al medico.
