Be Careful with those Tongue Piercings

Tongue piercings linked to gap between teeth

Tongue piercing is a very popular trend among teens and young adults. Although the seemingly harmless trend is fashionable, there can be lasting consequences for the teeth. A recent study issued by the New York University of Buffalo shows that tongue piercings can be particularly dangerous for one’s teeth.

A closer look at the tongue ring:

In a recent case study, a woman who had a tongue ring for seven years ended up developing a considerable gap in her front teeth. Before getting the tongue ring, she never had a gap in her teeth. After getting, the gap slowly began to develop. Within seven years of wearing a tongue ring, she developed a very prominent gap in her teeth. Playing with the tongue ring and pushing it back and forth between the two front teeth caused this. The constant force eventually led to a gap forming between the front two teeth. Scenarios like these can cause a person to have to get braces.

Smile Quote No. 30: If you don’t Have a Smile, I’ll Give you One of Mine

We are all born to smile, as it is a way we express our feelings towards people and events but sometimes appearance may try to stop us from showing our teeth and broadening our smile. It is very difficult to smile without showing your teeth.

There are simple problems that a dentist can solve, such as discolored, broken or chipped teeth as there are many restorative procedures available, but teeth that protrude are not so easy to solve and require the specialist attention of an orthodontist such as the orthodontist team at Beecroft Orthodontics in Fredericksburg VA.

Smile Quote No. 27: I have a Tickle in my Brain and it Keeps Making the Corners of my Mouth Point towards the Heavens

Dr. Matt Beecroft of Beecroft Orthodontics in Fredericksburg, VA has created my great smile. Before following one of his treatment programs I was actually ashamed to smile because my front teeth were so badly aligned that when I opened my mouth I could feel the stares of alarm. I was well in my 30s by that time and really thought it was far too late to do anything about it. After doing some research I discovered that you don’t need to be a teenager to get your teeth straightened but there were so many orthodontic appliances available for every age group and at a reasonable cost too.

Smile Quote No. 14: If You Want To Spoil the Day of a Grouch, Give Him a Smile

There’s a quote saying that if you want to spoil the day of a grouch, give him a smile. Ironically speaking, smiling at grouching people can actually change their moods from negative ones to positive ones. What the quote meant was to smile to those “not in the mood” people in order to help them see the bright side and stop grouching. Grouching can only add pressure, pain, and stress to their day not to mention people surrounding them might be affected too. Hence, the best solution to stop grouching is to smile.
