Over the weekend, a friend of mine was talking about tonsil stones -- essentially a white build up on the tonsil that can lead to some pretty foul breath. She was saying she has removed hers with a q-tip. But I have also read some people remove them with a water pick. Has anyone ever had one of these nasties removed by a dentist or a doctor? Are they safe to remove on our own?
