Tooth jewelery and tongue piercings, or lip piercings, many young people find "cool" and "chic". But the teeth and gums of those affected should see this differently. A study by US dentists showed already in 2007: While Dazzler (sticking symbols made of gold foil) and Twinkels (massive jewels made of gemstones) are glued superficially on the teeth and are harmless, piercings in the mouth are problematic and damage from a dental point of view in the long run the oral cavity.

Tongue and lip piercings can damage teeth and periodontium

Irreparable nerve tract damage, inflammation and pain are on the list of researchers who published their study in the Journal of the American Dental Association. In the long term, the piercing jewelry can literally destroy teeth and periodontium apparatus. It makes a difference where the piercing is exactly:

Do you have one? in the tongue, The piercing button constantly beats against the teeth by the constant playful movement of the tongue, which can lead to irreparable cracks in the enamel. Consequences for those affected may be heat and cold sensitivity of the teeth, irritation of the tooth nerve and tooth decay.

Do you have the piercing on the other hand? in the lower lip, pushes the button against the gums - and can thus lead to the decline of the gums and the underlying bone. The patients tested in the study had within a few months with the jewelry in the mouth up to eight millimeters deep "pockets" in the gums. Once there is no longer enough gums and, above all, bones, the teeth lack grip and sooner or later they will fall out.

No piercing with piercing

In addition, many orthodontists in the meantime reject rejection treatment in patients with tongue piercings, since in these patients the tongue has a changed pattern of movement - and thus the long-term success of the treatment is in question.

Therefore: Who wants to keep his teeth for a while, should keep the fingers of piercings in the mouth. Harmless are harmless jewelry such as Dazzler and Twinkles.
