Tongue Ring

edited June 2018 in Cosmetic Dentistry

I want to get a tongue ring. Will that hurt my teeth?



  • Apparently it does. I casually mentioned to my dentist that I was thinking of getting a tongue piercing, thinking (because he is pretty damn cool ) that he would be impressed. Nope. He said that sometimes people chip their teeth …like playing with the ball in their mouth… and get nasty infections…and (not quite sure I get this) but if you have a bar bell one, part
    of it rubs up against your gums and then makes your gums recede.

  • Getting a tongue ring may look cool but you increase the chances of damaging and chipping teeth plus it can become a nice harbor for bacteria. :(
