Lip and Tongue Piercings

The most common sites for oral piercing are the lips and tongue. Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil studied 60 patients with tongue piercing and a control group of 120 patients. Those with oral piercing had a habit of biting the piercing 50% of the time and 75% had a habit of rattling the piercing. The most important information from this was 37% of piercing group had tooth fractures and 18% recession on the lower gum area behind the back teeth. Therefore, I am telling you if you have a oral piercing you will eventually be in my chair for treatment!
