Tooth Gaps and Tongue Piercings

There are several reasons why tongue piercing is not healthy for you, but I just read of a new reason.  Playing with a tongue stud can cause your front teeth to spread, leaving a gap.  People with tongue studs tend to push the stud up against their front teeth. This can cause the teeth to separate.  Forces cause teeth to move and the stud is a force that acts similarly to an orthodontic appliance.  So, if you have a tongue stud, don’t play with it and don’t push it up against your teeth.  Tongue piercing can also injure the gums and cause mouth infections.
