Tooth Abrasion

From BME Encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

If oral jewelry (tongue piercing or labret related) is rubbing on teeth, it can erode the enamel over time, leaving you more susceptible to dental infections and tooth decay.

Minimize the risk of tooth abrasion by having properly placed and sized jewelry. Not everybody's anatomy allows them to have oral piercings without negative anatomical interactions - if you are one of these unlucky people, you're probably better off without the piercing (sorry).
