A tonsil stone is a calcified lump made up of bacteria, food debris, dead cells, mucus, and other materials that have become trapped in a crevice of the tonsils. They normally have a white or yellow color and are small in size. People who are most likely to develop tonsil stones are those who experience concurrent episodes of tonsillitis. Other than a tonsillectomy practicing good oral hygeine is the best way to prevent tonsil stones.
An infected wisdom tooth could possibly precipitate a stone if the patient is susceptible to tonsillitis and tonsil stones.
