ORAL MEDICINE: What are tonsil stones?

Oral Medicine

Tonsil stones are small masses that lodge in the tonsils, have an unpleasant odor and are also the cause of bad breath.

The tonsils are covered with a mucosa that contains a large number of pits, and it is precisely in those pits that the remains of food and bacteria remain, which when hardened become tonsilloliths.


These stones are not malignant, but if it is a factor of bad breath (halitosis), in case these stones are larger it can cause odinogafia (pain when passing food).
