Facts, General & Interesting Tonsillolith Icd 9 Code Information:
Tonsilloliths, or tonsil stones, are little items of calcareous matter that develop in the crevasses of the tonsils. Learn more about it here.
In certain men and women very little, solid, calcareous lumps, which you'll find white in color, occur in the crevasses of the tonsils, also known as tonsillar crypts. These lumps, also known as tonsilloliths, or calculus of the tonsil, or tonsil stones, can range in size from tiny little bits to pea sized ones and they have a tendency of staying lodged in the area of the tonsils for a period of time, until they are dislodged finally. They're usually accompanied by a bad smell emanating from the tonsils, and a person suffering from tonsilloliths suffers from an actual sensation of something being stuck in the rear part of the throat.
Tonsilith removal methods and tips:
One method is to use a stainless steel long handled spoon 7.5 inches. You would need to press the stone out from beneath. This method works easier if the stone is older and harder. It's also possible to use tweezers to pluck the stone out. The use of pulsating irrigation to clear out the crypts of gathered debris may also help (using an adjustable unit over a low pressure setting or a needleless Monoject syringe to avoid damaging tissue.) Alternately medicine droppers (especially one with a curved tip) are utilized to suck out the smaller sized stones. Using such a medicine dropper to first irrigate the area with saline which may help to bring the tonsil stone to the surface from which it can then be more easily sucked out with the dropper. To get relief from gagging people sometimes think about using everyday items, for example toothpicks, as small tools rather than using a bigger finger. This is not advised due to the danger of the short lightweight toothpick/object being released and breathed into the throat. Use care when trying any of the methods in the list above. The tonsils and throat are sensitive, and can be damaged or agitated very easily.
Since I realize the things they are and how cheap and easy it is to destroy Tonsil Stones, I almost feel ignorant or like I've been duped. All this time, I thought I had some certain illness or something like that and paid out tons of money on visits to the doctor and medications. Very little did I know up until just a thirty day period ago.....
I have been affected by these unsightly little things for years and up until a short time ago I really didn't know what the heck they were. I've been to the physician, experienced some down-right dangerous sore throats, had horrible ear aches, nasty breath that wouldn't leave and tried all kinds of items to get rid of them.
They would come and go, appear and disappear at all the most awful times you may realise of. My first visit to my doctor to actually question him about them got me a hazy answer about some form of throat infection and a dose of antibiotics which didn't take care of squat! I swear I made 5 different visits and was put on three different prescriptions none of which did a bit of good.
Remember though that I had NO IDEA what it really was. Finally he told me that the only method to get rid of them was to have my tonsils removed. YIKES!!
Then he told me it was not suggested for a person to have their tonsils taken out after they reach a particular age not to mention how much it would cost. So did I do that? Heck no!
So I started digging them out, using all kinds of mouthwash, gargling three times each day and maybe a couple of days I would not see them but, VOILA...they always came back. I've stuck so many different things in my mouth to try and dig them out, It is not even funny! Well...actually yes it is funny.
Well, skip on to the main part. How I found out what they were and how to get rid of them permanently in about 3 weeks. I actually found this little lady by chance, looked over her information, tried it and now I'm one Satisfied, Tonsil Stone free guy now! I'm not joking when I say, the junk breath, throat aggravation, ear aches.....ALL Eliminated! ;-)
