Oral Piercings

Oral piercings are any piercings in or around the mouth, including both tongue and lip piercings.  Such piercings are dangerous because of infection risk (even the cleanest mouth is ripe with bacteria), permanent nerve damage, artery damage causing severe bleeding, and damage to teeth and gums that can only be corrected though extensive dental treatment.

Why to avoid Oral Piercings:

  • blood vessel damage
  • permanent nerve damage
  • metal allergy risks
  • tooth fracture
  • recession of gums
  • speech impairment
  • serious infection that can restrict bleathing
  • requires plastic surgery to repair
