If you suffer from bad breath, or you feel pain when swallowing or you feel metallic taste sometimes then you are probably suffering from Tonsil Stones. Tonsil stones are quite abundant. Tonsil Stones are lumps of calcified material that form in the fleshy pad at the back of the throat(tonsils). Tonsil stones weigh between 0.3g and 42g. They are mainly composed of calcium. Other minerals such as ammonia, phosphorus, magnesium and carbonate may also present but in very small deposits.

Tonsil Stones are created when the trapped debris in the tonsils calcifies. The tonsils are filled with crannies and nooks where bacteria, dead cells and mucus become clogged to. The trapped materials then form a debris, which accumulates in white formations in the pockets. The debris may be big enough to protrude and get clogged in the tonsil crypt. They are more common in people who have suffered chronic inflammation in their tonsil or have had repeated bouts of tonsil stones. It is a known fact that they are more common in children than in adults.
