Information about oral piercings from your Redcliffe Dentist

Oral piercing has become widely popular over the past few years. They are usually done on the lip, tongue and / or cheek. However, many people aren’t aware of the dental problems that can go along with it. Some problems that can result from oral piercing are:

  • Infection
  • Fractured or chipped teeth
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Scarring
  • Tooth loss
  • Gum damage
  • Loss of taste
  • Mouth sores

The most common dental problems caused by oral piercing are fractured teeth and infection.

Teeth can become chipped and fractured by mouth jewelry while talking, eating, chewing and even sleeping. If a tooth is fractured in the enamel, it may only need a filling. If the fracture goes deeper into the tooth, a root canal or extraction may be necessary.

Anyone considering oral piercing should talk with their Redcliffe dentist first to make sure that they are practicing good oral hygiene. Good oral hygiene and a commitment to taking care of the piercing are essential in preventing serious infections. To help avoid chipped and fractured teeth, remove the jewelry during eating and sleeping.

Tooth decay signs from your Redcliffe Dentist

Tooth decay is a common problem that occurs when acids in your mouth dissolve the outer layers of your teeth.

It is also known as dental decay or dental caries.

Although levels of tooth decay have decreased over the last few decades, it is still one of the most widespread health problems

Signs and symptoms

Tooth decay may not cause any symptoms until it has reached an advanced stage. As the problem develops, symptoms of tooth decay can include:

  • toothache
  • tooth sensitivity – you may feel tenderness or pain when eating or drinking something hot, cold or sweet
  • grey, brown or black spots appearing on your teeth
  • bad breath
  • an unpleasant taste in your mouth

If left untreated, tooth decay can lead to further problems such as a cavities (holes in the teeth) gum disease or dental abscesses (collections of pus at the end of the teeth or in the gums).

Before tooth Decay becomes a problem for you, call your Redcliffe Dentist on 32844281 and we will be happy to book an appointment for you to see one of our fantastic dentists.
