Neglecting to care for your mouth piercings can cause infections and possible damage. Oral hygiene, such as brushing twice a day with an antibacterial toothpaste, cleaning the tongue, and the use of mouthwashes specifically for oral piercings are all excellent ways to keep your piercing and your teeth in good condition.
It is also important to schedule an appointment with your dentist for a checkup after a new piercing. Your dentist can make sure you are healing properly and recommend the best way to care for your piercing in addition to your regular oral hygiene. They are also able to ensure that your piercing has been safely done and the metal of the piercing isn’t at risk of causing enamel or tooth damage, though the best piercing to ensure this is no piercing!
