In the past, there have not been any tools available specifically designed for tonsil stone removal. This has lead to some creative but problematic tool ideas people have shared in our surveys and interviews including fingers, Q-tips, toothbrushes, ear wax removers, water flossers, etc.
Unfortunately, these tools may actually cause more harm than good, because they may be too small to be safe, or have sharp edges or high velocities that can cut tissue.
We understand the frustration and the desperation to remove the stinky stones before important events but the tonsil tissue is delicate and should be treated with care.
Why we started Tonsil Tech
My co-founder and I have tonsil stones and we tried all these options and none of them effectively solved the problem. With our bioengineering backgrounds, we knew there had to be a better way!
TonsiFIX - a premium tool kit for tonsil stone removal
TonsiFIX was designed specifically for removing tonsil stones. This means the tool is long enough to reach the tonsils, it is made of a soft plastic material so there are no sharp edges or points and it was manufactured in the United States.
How it works
The TonsiFIX tools are designed to be gently inserted into a tonsil crypt. Once in the crypt, the tool is rotated to capture the tonsil stone and then removed from the mouth. The stone can then be removed from the tool by tapping it or flushing it with clean water.
After use, the tools should be washed and dried and then stored until next time. For convenience, the TonsiFIX starter kit comes with a washable and reusable pouch.
The TonsiFIX Tonsil Stone Removal Kit comes in two options, the Premium Kit includes all 3 sizes of the TonsiFIX Tools (1-3 mm tips) and the Basic Kit includes the medium tool (2 mm tip). Each tool comes with a connected wrist strap so you can be confident that you won't drop your tool while you’re using it!
Both kits come with a suction-cup light so you can see your tonsils while you use the tool, because half the battle of removing tonsil stones is being able to see them. Our suction-cup light allows you to use both hands to remove your tonsil stones, instead of trying to juggle a phone or flashlight!
The Basic Kit is effective for common tonsil stone situations and the Premium Kit is perfect for handling ALL tonsil stone sizes and situations.
