People are going to the extremes for seeking pleasure, the latest being body-art such as tattooing and body piercing. Know about the hazards of lip piercing here.
It is not likely that every body-piercer will use a sterilized needle, so, chances of getting infected cannot be ignored. An unsterile piercing followed by an inapt after care on your part can lead to many infections.
If by any chances the lip ornament is pierced at the wrong place then it can lead to the erosion of your tooth by the constant rubbing of the ornament against your teeth.
What else can follow but tooth decay after tooth erosion, as once the enamel is totally worn off, the tooth will start decaying.
This happens when your lip-jewelry rubs against the gums. This can cause the gums to bleed.
This comes as a result of gum erosion. After constant erosion, it ends up in shrinking a part of your gums.
If you are not having healthy gums, the jawbone itself will be exposed to infection and erosion. When such a thing happens, the teeth loosen and tend to dislocate. Tooth scrambling is actually the after result of many infections that happen in your mouth and it generally goes unnoticed.
This is another by-product of gum recession. As the gums recede, the nerves of the teeth become exposed and sensitive.
This is the ultimate result of teeth infection.
If you have picked up a person who is less experienced for piercing your lip then this can end in some serious trouble like nerve damage.
No one is safe when you are considering a body piercing. HIV is a matter of serious concern, as it’s just a careless mishap that can transfer this incurable virus from one customer to the next.
This can go hand in hand with the risk of HIV. It is better to get a licensed person to pierce any part of your body than losing your life to a simple piercing.
