Oral Piercings: Concerns & Care

Posted on by admin

If piercings are your thing, we aren’t here to judge. We believe everyone should be free to express themselves how they wish. However, when it comes to oral piercings, the team at my Goose Creek dental office wants you to be aware of some of the concerns that go along with them.

The Concerns

If you’re thinking about getting your tongue, lip, or cheek pierced, make sure you know all of the risks involved with doing so in order to make an educated decision.

The Care

To reduce your risk of infection, tooth damage, or gum disease, make sure to follow proper care of your oral piercing.

If you’ve already had a part of your mouth pierced, keep an eye out for any signs of infection including swelling, redness, fever, chills, or shaking. If you notice any of the symptoms, seek medical attention as soon as possible.

My Goose Creek dental office is here to help answer any questions or concerns you may have about getting an oral piercing. If you’re on the fence, call to schedule an appointment with us today.
