How an Oral Piercing Could Ruin Your Oral Health
Posted on 3/25/2020 by Rho Family Dentistry
Piercings have been a part of society for a very long time, and you may be thinking about getting one. Modern piercing technology is much safer and cleaner than methods used in the past. Though getting an oral piercing today is safe, you should still know some things before getting one. Proper care of your piercing is essential. Otherwise, you could ruin your oral health. The reason taking care of your piercing is so important is that it creates a wound in your mouth. Open wounds in our mouths have the chance to become infected. Mouth infections are particularly hard to deal with. On top of that, they make it harder to eat. An oral piercing can become infected when bacteria in your mouth goes into the piercing site. This could lead to all sorts of trouble and make it impossible for your piercing to heal properly. How to Take Care of an Oral Piercing After your piercing, you may be wondering how to avoid infection. Whoever gives you your piercing should be a professional. This professional should give you care instruction for a fast recovery. During the healing process, it's necessary to take extra care of your mouth. Always make sure to brush and floss every day. This will help your piercing from becoming infected. Another measure that's necessary is to keep your mouth disinfected throughout the day. You can rinse your mouth with warm salt water to clean the site of the piercing multiple times a day. After an oral piercing you're at risk for all kinds of oral health problems. However, you can have a speedy and safe recovery if you take the right steps. For more information about how to care for your oral piercing, please contact our office. If you've recently had an oral piercing and it's healing improperly, please set up an appointment with us. Waiting too long could be dangerous....
