Facial Piercing Precautions

We recently shared a post on Facebook discussing facial piercings.  This is a topic that may not be addressed often, but here at Kid Care Dental we feel it is important that parents be aware of the dangers certain piercings, such as of the cheek and tongue, can cause.  Our pediatric dentists do not recommend these piercings for kids and teens, as they can often cause chipped teeth, blood poisoning, and other serious bacterial infections.  However, if your teen does in fact decide to pierce his or her tongue, cheek or lip, make sure that it is closely monitored and always kept clean.  Please be sure to contact us at the first sign of trouble, as your child’s health is as important to us as it is to you.
