Mouth jewelry can be a threat to an individual’s oral health. This is because mouth jewelry can destroy your smile in several different ways. If you are in the market for a lip or tongue ring, it is important to understand the risk factors associated with mouth jewelry.

Mouth jewelry consists of hard pieces that can easily break off. This can pose a significant choking hazard that could put your life in danger. Furthermore, these hard pieces can easily chip and crack your teeth.

Tongue rings can be hazardous to your oral health because they can easily cause permanent nerve damage when placed. Furthermore, they can burst blood vessels and lead to severe oral health ailments. No matter the type of mouth jewelry you use, it poses a serious risk for infectious diseases, including hepatitis and endocarditis. In addition, they can cause oral inflammation and make cleaning your mouth more difficult.
