Are tonsil stones a result of your teeth/dental hygiene?
I sometimes feel like I might have them but I have never coughed one up.
Tonsil stones, like any other glandular calcifications (gall, kidney, salivary stones, etc) are most likely caused by excessive mineral intake in the diet, although this isn't really known for certain.
