It is fairly commen to see people with pierced lips, tongues, or cheeks but many people don't know just how dangerous these piercings can be.  Because of the millions of bacteria that live in the mouth there are several risks involved in oral piercings.

Some of these risks include chipped or cracked teeth, blood clots, blood poisoning, heart infections, nerve damage, and scar tissue.   Infection is also a  common complication, the tongue can swell large enough to close off breathing airway.

We recommend following the advice of the American Dental Association and give your mouth a break...skip the mouth jewelry.
