Q. My tongue ring has caused gum recession. How to prevent it further?



Hi doctor,

I have had my tongue pierced for eight months. I went to the dentist and they said that the rubbing of the tongue ring on my teeth had caused gum recession, so I was advised to remove my tongue ring. I have read that using a bioflex tongue bar do not cause any damage to your teeth. Is this true? If not, could you give me any alternative to not remove my tongue ring? Thank you.

I can understand your concern regarding your dental health.

  • Bioflex tongue bar can be used to prevent the damage to the teeth in case of tongue piercing. It is beneficial and gives good result for a temporary period.
  • So, for long time result and to avoid more damage to the gums and teeth, you should follow your dentist’s advice.
