Tongue and Lip Piercings Can Damage Your Teeth and Smile

Did you know having a stud or bar in your mouth can cause fractured teeth, receding gums and bone loss, usually when the piercing is played with?

If you do insist on getting a tongue or lip piercing, do not play with it! Just absentmindedly playing with your piercing can cause a chip in your tooth and eventually lead to gum recession. But most of all when having a lip or tongue piercing, visiting the dentist regularly is important to evaluate your oral health.
