Tonsil stones are calcium deposits on the tonsils and occur when tonsilitis is recurrent and has occurred many times or frequently. Most of the time, the white spots that are visible on the tonsils are food particles and debris that accumulate in the fold of the inflamed mucosa over the swollen tonsils. These spots go away when the infection and the inflammation settles down. So, if this is the first time she has had tonsilitis then these are not tonsil stones.
