Oral piercings seem to be a part of our society today. For a lot of people it is not a big deal. If you or someone you know is thinking about getting a piercing be aware of what complications may arise.
Here are just some of the nerves that may be affected by a pierced tongue or a piercing somewhere on the face.
The function of each nerve can easily be found by doing a search. Although we at Global Smiles have heard of infections, we are glad that most people have had safe experiences.
Our suggestion is to become informed about the piercing procedure, its risks, and what happens to the pierced area after you take the stud out.
