Discover a new kind of comfort with Bioplast tongue rings. Most tongue rings are made of metal but Bioplast gives you a completely different kind of comfort and flexibility. It is a type of biological plastic that is flexible, soft and ideal for tongue piercings. When I buy tongue jewellery, the most important thing is comfort. The tongue is so sensitive that if your jewellery is in the least bit irritating it soon becomes a major problem. Another priority is damage to my teeth and gums – you only get one set, so it is important to choose jewellery that will be kind to your mouth. Bioplast tongue rings eliminate both these problems – they are really comfortable and they also greatly reduce the chance of chipping a tooth, wearing away tooth enamel or wearing on gums.
At BJS we are used to hearing alarmist claims about the danger of body piercings and today is no different – a study from the University at Buffalo claims that tongue bars damage teeth. They have released a report based on a single patient, resulting in many high profile news websites plastering their front pages with unsubstantiated claims that tongue piercings lead to tooth damage, brain abscesses and expensive dental work.
Unfortunately for said news websites the University at Buffalo study is not representative of the majority experience (hands up everyone with tongue piercings and healthy teeth!), responsible piercing aftercare or modern tongue studs. Basically the report concerns a 26 year old woman who has developed a gap in her teeth due to playing with her metal barbell for 7 years.
University at Buffalo Claims Tongue Bars Damage Your Teeth
My main objection to this story is that it is the experience of one person and that some basic piercing advice could have prevented her problems – if she did not have access to such advice or a good piercer, then that is another issue. The story offers no statistics on the supposed link between tongue piercing and tooth damage, so all we have is one individual who had a bad experience.
Wearing a gold tongue ring is a great way to make a statement, the glamour of the gold will brighten up any look and is also very comfortable. The gold tongue ring looks great against any skin tone and many gold tongue rings are hand finished which adds a great personal touch to each piece. Many people choose to wear a gold tongue ring after piercings have been healed as they donâ€™t irritate the skin and look fantastic.
Gold Tongue Ring The History & Culture
The history of tongue piercing has been a ritual in Aztec and Maya cultures for sometime, priests have pierced their tongue to inflict pain to honour their God. Islamic Fakirs and Sufis from the Middle East and Asian Spirit Mediums of the Far East have practised tongue piercing as an offering and proof of trance state.
The Aboriginal Australian’s practised tongue piercing is believed to enable the holy man to “suck with his tongue the evil magic out of his patient’s body”.
How Gold Tongue Ring Piercing’s Are Carried Out
Once you’ve decided where you want a tongue piercing (this is usually in the centre of the tongue) the placement will be marked, then a clamp applied. The first piercing is usually longer than what you will require in the future to allow for swelling which is very common. Within a couple of days of getting your first tongue piercing, the tongue can swell to double its original size, it can be difficult to speak and eat but will soon be better with plenty of cold beverages and chewing on ice.
As the tongue heals incredibly quickly, piercings will close very quickly, in-fact a healed piercing can close up in a matter of hours.
