Why we started Tonsil Tech
Where Tonsil Tech started
In 2017, Sydney and Jessy were studying bioengineering at Oregon State University and had to come up with a list of health problems that needed solutions for their senior project. They were surprised to find they both had tonsil stones at the top of their lists! Their project went on to win several class awards.
After college, they moved to the Bay Area to work at startups doing process engineering for medical device components, automation engineering in pharmaceutical manufacturing, and 3D printing oral medical devices.
But they still wanted to find a solution for tonsil stones some day...
Why Sydney and Jessy wanted a solution for tonsil stones
Sydney and Jessy both got tonsil stones and they hated it! The bad breath would make them self-conscious so they felt like they needed to remove them. The problem was, there weren't any good options for tonsil stone removal!
- They tried using their fingers but they were too large to accurately get into the tonsil pits and remove tonsil stones which left them with sore throats or accidentally swallowing the stone (YUCK!!).
- They tried everything under the bathroom sink and all of the off-label tonsil stone removers on Amazon such as earwax removers, toothbrushes, pimple poppers, Q-tips, waterpiks, etc. and they all had issues! Some were too short to reach the tonsils, some were too sharp/powerful for delicate tonsil tissue resulting in sore/infected tonsils, some only dislodged the stone rather than remove it, and some had small detachable parts which is a choking hazard.
- They also tried expensive daily mouthwashes that had complicated/confusing routines and couldn't fix their tonsil stone situation in the moments when they needed it most.
- And diet changes, some small studies suggest that reducing consumption of dairy, alcohol, caffeine, and several other normal dietary staples might reduce tonsil stones for some people. But who wants to give all that up?
THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY TO DEAL WITH TONSIL STONES!!!
