Tongue Piercing

Piercing your tongue or other areas around your mouth, including lips and cheeks, is of particular concern to dentists.

Tooth fractures are increasingly common occurrence as a result of the trauma incurred from a barbell inserted during tongue piercing.

Risks of tooth damage, speech modification and infection increase substantially with oral piercings as well as the possibility of inhaling or swallowing dangerous jewelry.

Studies have also found that clients considering body piercing may not be receiving sufficient care instructions, hence putting them at greater risk of post-operative complications.
