Risks of Tongue Piercing

Infection
Whenever there's a break in the skin, infection is a possibility. The possibility of infection is elevated when a skin break occurs in the mouth because it is a bacteria rich environment. Tongue piercing brings with it a bigger risk of infection at the site of the piercing.
Handling the jewelry further increases the risk as outside bacteria are added to the bacteria present in the mouth.
Swelling
Swelling of the tongue is common after a piercing. Your tongue is in constant motion, which slows and complicates the healing process. There have been incidences so severe that tongue swelling obstructs the airway.
Prolonged Bleeding and Nerve Damage
The tongue has many blood vessels and nerves. Any damage done to the blood vessels of the tongue carries the risk of serious blood loss. If a nerve is damaged during piercing, it may result in permanent damage with the potential to permanently affect speech or ingestion. more.

Mouthguards

Sports Dentistry, the treatment and prevention of oral, facial athletic injuries and related oral diseases, is a growing and highly discussed segment of dentistry today. With the rise of participation in athletics and youth sporting events, physicians and dentists are looking at what their role should be in helping to protect their patients during these activities.
Consider these facts: The National Sports Foundation estimates that over 5 million teeth are lost annually in sporting activities in the United States. A blow to the jaw or chin can cause dental injuries as well as concussive, sub concussive, or head and neck injuries. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), the lifetime cost of a missing tooth can reach $10,000 to $15,000. The cost of a concussion cannot be measured in dollars.
Essential Protection for Athletes of All Ages
Mouthguards are essential equipment for athletes of all ages who participate in sporting events and activities. The use of a mouthguard can protect the teeth, lips, cheeks, and tongue from injuries sustained during sports activities. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, more.

Dental Implants

Dental implants require a time commitment and dedicated oral hygiene routine for optimal maintenance. In addition, implants require a greater financial investment than that of a removable bridge or conventional denture. However, many people discover the end results—a healthy smile, comfort, greater chewing ability and the confidence that comes with it—make dental implants well worth the investment!
Dental implants may be the answer if you're looking for an attractive, comfortable, and permanent replacement for missing teeth.
Most of us take for granted the work our natural teeth perform over the years. We seldom stop to appreciate how easily we bite into a dense, chewy bagel or enjoy a succulent ear of corn on the cob. We may talk, smile and laugh with confidence and our teeth may function pain-free for decades. That all changes when we're faced with tooth loss or experience the diminished ability of our teeth to perform natural functions. It's then we realize the tremendous value of healthy teeth in our lives, and how much they affect our chewing, confidence and appearance. more.

Hey all! Overall, I would rate ProDental 5/5. I went in there with my sister a few weeks ago expecting quality service and that's what I got! The professionalism was something that deserves to be applauded for. I would easily recommend any family/friends to this place. Everyone there seemed to be extremely knowledgeable (as I would hope haha). It was a about as good as an experience as any dentist visit can be.

Can't say that I have any negative comments about ProDental. I've been to a lot of different dentists before and this experience was miles ahead of my average experience. They're professionals at what they do. I would come back any day. I highly recommend ProDental to anyone reading this. Thanks.

After reading the other reviews, I decided I would try Dr. Pham because my tooth pain wasn't going away. I have to say Dr. Pham is worth every penny! To begin with, her office returned my call within 10 mins on a Friday morning and met me within the hour. She was was able to identify the problem right away. She is a very kind person and I will refer to her if I ever have another situation.

Everyone is so helpful and understanding at ProDental! I get the sense that they genuinely care about you as a patient. They answered and questions I threw at them and I felt like I learned a lot of new things about my teeth (and how to maintain them). I've had some bad experiences before when it came to anything like this, but I am convinced that this is one of my best experiences to date!

I have to extend my sincere compliments to the entire staff at ProDental! They are AWESOME!!! It is not a surprise that many of us dread going to see a dentist, but I actually say, that I look forward to my routine 6 month visits for cleaning. It is very hard to come by an office which is run so efficiently, takes the utmost regard for patient comfort and cleanliness, while at the same time providing such excellent services for their patients. I would highly recommend the dentist and her staff to anyone seeking a reliable, and honest dentist.

Stop the Grind

Does your jaw feel stiff or do you have difficulty opening your mouth wide? Are your teeth sensitive to cold drinks? Do your jaw muscles feel tired in the morning? You may be grinding your teeth at night (a medical condition called bruxism) or you may be clenching your teeth, which can be just as harmful. People with nighttime grinding habits may wear away their tooth enamel "ten times faster" than those without "abusive chewing habits "I Eventually, your teeth may be worn down and destroyed.
In addition to relieving head, neck, jaw joint and shoulder pains, treating bruxism and clenching is cost effective compared to ignoring the condition and exposing teeth to continued grinding. Without treatment, crowns (caps), bridges, implants and dentures are often needed to repair or replace worn and damaged teeth. Ask your dentist if a nightguard can help to provide temporary relief from grinding, bruxing or clenching. more.
