  • What are tonsil stones?

  • They are special stones used to make bowling balls.

  • No.

  • When we open our mouth wide enough and look at ourselves in a mirror.

  • We can see a pair of palatine tonsils in our throat.

  • These tonsils have crevices and holes called tonsillar crypts.

  • Now, sometimes food particles, mucus, dead cells and bacteria get collected in the crypts and over time,

  • The collected lumps begin to calcify.

  • What does calcify mean?

  • Wait.

  • I'll explain.

  • Calcification is the accumulation of calcium in a particular part of the body.

  • Usually, this happens for the formation of bones and teeth.

  • However, sometimes, the collected lumps in the crypts also start calcifying.

  • They turn into hard structures of calcium and other compounds, thus forming tonsil stones or tonsilloliths.
