There are many rarer yet interesting oral piercings you can get, such as Smiley, Frowny, tongue web piercing, uvula piercing, and more. As long as the piercing is located inside the mouth, it is considered an oral piercing. Oral piercings tend to be more sensitive than piercings located on the outside. It means that they require more care and a more dedicated aftercare regime. You need to brush your teeth regularly and to clean your oral piercing several times per day with a saline solution. Also, it is important to make sure that your tongue jewelry or other oral piercing jewelry doesn’t cause damage to your gums and teeth. Jewelry for oral piercings depend on the exact type of the piercing in question. Tongue piercings typically use straight barbells while other oral piercings use Captive Bead Rings, circular barbells or other types of rings.
It is also important to remember that lip piercings are partially oral piercings because one of their ends is typically located inside of the mouth. This makes lip piercings both facial and oral piercings. This is very important to remember because you need to perform adequate aftercare for your lip piercing that involves things needed for oral piercings.
