When Style And Oral Health Collide

 

Oral piercing is a popular form of body-art in Fresno, but just because it’s popular doesn’t mean it’s safe. I’m Art Mirelez, a dentist serving the Medera, Selma, and Oakhurst areas. When my patients ask me about the safety of oral piercings, I make sure they examine the possible dangerous consequences.

First, patients should know that infection is always a major concern with any piercing, but because the mouth is the perfect environment for breeding bacteria, oral piercings are especially problematic. Your ability to chew, swallow, and speak can also be impaired by an oral piercing.

Oral piercings can lead to an increase in saliva flow and, possibly, excessive drooling, something my dental patients generally want to avoid. (I don’t know anyone in Fresno who thinks drooling is attractive.) It’s also critical to know that chipped or cracked teeth, damage to dental fillings, and metal sensitivity are other possible issues.

Another serious risk associated with piercings that should concern patients is nerve damage. Many people experience temporary numbness after a piercing, but for some, the damage is severe and sensations never return. An injured nerve can also impact facial movements as well as your sense of taste.

If you’ve want to get a tongue bar or lip piercing, please talk to your dentist so you can consider the safest decision possible for your dental health.

If you are looking for an experienced dentist in the Fresno area to count on for accurate information and the highest quality care, we welcome you to Mirelez Wellness Dental. Call 559-761-1871 today to schedule an appointment. We offer dental implants, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and more!

We may even convince you that safe, effective cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening, veneers, or bonding would be a smarter and safer way to express your personality and boost your confidence. Give us a call today!
