How to get rid of tonsil stones. Sometimes they can be so big that laser tonsil removal under local anaesthetic spray is required.

Very big collections of food and salivary debris in the tonsils are probably a more common cause of bad breath than small periodontal pockets in the gums, around the teeth. Ones like this picture need subtotal removal of all of the tonsil, best performed by laser vapourisation under local anaesthetic spray in clinic. A lunchtime procedure.

Smaller ones can be controlled by the judicious use of throat gargles and water jets

Is the procedure a one off or are further procedures required?

It may take more than one procedure, it depends how deep the holes and cracks extend.
