What is tooth piercing
In the age of offbeat piercings, tooth piercing is catching up fast with young body piercing enthusiasts. Etched with a small jewelry the tooth gets a sparkly look, expressing your individuality. Being a painless procedure, it has a lesser risk of infection. Also known as dental piercing, in most piercing parlors or dental salons a composite is applied on the tooth after polishing, followed by embedding of the jewelry into it. Although the tooth is not drilled for insertion of the jewelry to prevent cracking or chipping, it might be done in some cases by a professional expert.
Tooth piercing complications
Exerting excessive pressure on the tooth can cause the jewelry to come out and enter the digestive or respiratory system, resulting in serious complications. For this reason, you should avoid vigorous brushing as well as eating solid and sticky foods.
