Hi. These are most likely food debris collected in the crypts of your tonsil called Tonsilloliths. They are usually harmless but can cause Halitosis (bad odour from mouth), or even infection sometimes. The easiest way of getting rid of them is to gargle with chlorhexidine mouth gargle after each meal. Warm regards, Dr Aanchal A Mittal, Therapeia centre, Bangalore
