Why Tongue Piercings Are Bad for Your Teeth

Tongue piercings are considered cool but as studies reveal they are bad for your oral health. People with these piercings are highly susceptible to oral infections and tooth damage.

Main points:

– Researchers found more cases of gum inflammation, recession and bleeding among patients with tongue piercings.

– Tongue piercings crack teeth and damage gum tissue, and infections can trigger recurring abscesses.

– Avoid oral diseases by removing your tongue piercing and visiting a dentist for treatment of existing damage.

The mouth is prone to bacteria and piercings only increase the risk.
