Oral Piercings Lead to Extensive Oral Damage if Not Cared for Properly


Posted on 11/8/2021 by Dr. Dani Stansell
Oral Piercings Lead to Extensive Oral Damage if Not Cared for ProperlyAs much as oral piercings help enhance beauty, they pose serious risk to your oral health. These piercings could affect your tongue structure and prevent fundamental functioning of your mouth. Therefore, it is important to know the extensive oral damage that piercings can cause if you don't take good care of them.

Gum Disease


Oral piercings can lead to gum disease. This is caused by the sharp piercings going through your gums, triggering infections. They also damage your gum tissues extensively. Once the gum tied is affected, it makes it easy for bacteria to move up from your mouth and settle under your gums. This causes gum disease. Gingivitis or gum disease is a serious oral condition that could lead to tooth loss. It can also affect the rest of your body. Some of the conditions triggered by gum disease include some types of cancer, heart disease, tooth loss, and chronic bad breath.

Oral Infections


Every time there is a hole in your body, such as an oral piercing, the chances of infections are high. Infections caused by piercings can be small, but lack of treatment could see them advance and cause severe consequences. There are several reasons why having piercings in your mouth is harmful. To start with, your mouth is a safe haven for bacteria to thrive. Therefore, any infection in your mouth could easily advance into a serious condition.

Damage


Oral piercings can affect how you speak and chew food. This results in poor mouth functioning that could affect both your oral and overall health. This is why it is important to take good care of oral piercings to prevent possible damage. If possible, you should avoid them altogether. This will go a long way in keeping your oral health stable.
