I'll be frank: There are tons of ways to get them out, but they will just come back. I spent years digging them out, and finally cut dairy products out of my diet to try to help. This does help, immensely.
I was still having problems with bad breath, an occasional tonsil stone, etc, and so I finally did what will permanently eradicate the little buggers-- a tonsillectomy. I am on day 8 of recovery, and it sure isn't fun, but well worth it, I think.
Best of luck with them, try cutting dairy out if possible!
Or, if you're brave, go for a tonsillectomy. Depends how much trouble they are causing you though.
