Tongue & Lip Piercings: Effect On Your Oral Health

Tongue piercings may be trendy, but biting down on the metal stud can crack a tooth. Lip piercings pose a similar risk. When metal rubs against the gums, it can cause damage to the oral tissue which may lead to tooth loss.

The mouth is a haven for bacteria. Piercings raise the risk of infections and sores. Get educated by your dentist or dental hygienist about the health risks.

Getting the piercing itself poses a risk of accidentally piercing a large blood vessel, which can cause severe bleeding.

What stories do you know about piercings in the mouth that didn’t go as expected?
