Dangers Associated with New Oral Piercings

Posted on 6/13/2018 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Oral Piercings Palisades Surgical Arts CA 90272New oral piercings can be a lot of fun, and can help you stand out among your peers. However, they can also be very dangerous when it comes to your overall oral health. They are known to cause trouble with how healthy your mouth is.

Many of them leave you facing issues with your teeth that you would not otherwise have had to deal with as well.

If you recently got a new oral piercing, or you are thinking about getting one, it is time to know what to expect long-term before going another day with it.

Oral Piercings Can Really Hurt Your Mouth

An oral piercing is something directly in a part of your mouth. This could be a cheek piercing, a lip ring, or a tongue piercing. While these are common and very popular among younger generations, they are not safe.

Any type of piercing puts you at much higher risk of developing an infection in or around your mouth. Plus, if you have an oral piercing, you are at much higher risk of breaking a tooth.

Some of the other potential dangers you could face if you had an oral piercing includes swelling, a piercing that gets embedded in your tissues, an obstruction of your airway, and bleeding that can be very difficult to control.

The risks do not go down as your piercing heals, either. They stay high the entire time you have the piercing, and until it has been out long enough to heal.

The ADA does not ever recommend any type of oral piercing, as the dangers far outweigh any and all benefits. However, if you have one, we will still do anything we can to help take care of your oral health. Call us today to find out more about how to protect yourself from the dangers associated with oral piercings.
