So in light of this, I've outlined a few really useful methods that make getting rid of the stones much easier and much quicker just below.
This is probably the most basic of all methods and I'm sure you all will be able to make use of it.
After wetting the end of a q-tip, it can prove very helpful in dislodging your tonsil stones. Thanks to its thin dimensions, it's much easier to see what you're doing (via a mirror) and you're much less likely to gag.
Because of these, you're spending much less time faffing around and therefore removing the stone much quicker.
Q-tip are, of course, pretty soft so they'll be best suited for those with sensitive gums and tonsils.

They have little bent tips which makes getting behind your tonsil much easier. So if you're dealing with stones which you can't see then this will prove very useful - not so much for ones you can see however, as it can take some prep to get it ready.
Although you could use the suction of air to suck up any stones that you can see. This would require any prep and it'll be much quicker (and easier) than using your finger.
You can use plain, clean water if you like but I recommend you mix this with 3% hydrogen peroxide. This solution will prove more effective at breaking down the stones.
If you suffer from a sensitive gag reflex and also have sensitive gums then this is a method I suggest you try before the others. I think it'll be most suitable for you.
If you don't know what a water pik is then basically it's a little machine that produces a small, pressurized stream of water. It is primarily meant for cleaning out teeth and gums but it can be very useful for removing tonsil stones, especially if they're embedded deep into your tonsils.
Situations such as that are when the device comes most in handy as it can seriously reduce the time you spend toying with the little bastards.
Before you try out this, test out how powerful the water stream is. You'll in most cases have to use the lowest setting no matter what but you're better checking just in case. Given how much pain you could already be in, you don't want to make it worse.
