Escudero-Castaño N, Perea-García MA, Campo-Trapero J - Open Dent J (2008)

Bottom Line: This practice has a long history as part of religious, tribal, cultural or sexual symbolism.CONCLUSION.: Patients with oral and perioral piercing should be regularly followed up because of the possible development of different types of adverse effects.CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS.: Adverse effects of oral and perioral piercing can be systemic, with transmission of infectious diseases such as hepatitis B or C, or can be local, with alteration of oral mucosae or even of dental structures.

ABSTRACT
BACKGROUND.: The oral an perioral piercing has a long history as part of religious, tribal,cultural or sexual symbolism and nowdays there is a high incidence of oral and perioral piercing in the adolescent population. This practice has a long history as part of religious, tribal, cultural or sexual symbolism. This article reviews current knowledge on injuries or diseases that might be produced by piercing in the oral cavity. We propose a classification to diagnosed the pathologies related to oral an perioral piercing METHODS.: A search was conducted of articles in PubMed, Scielo published between 1997 and 2007, using the key words ;;oral and perioral, piercing , ;;oral, piercing and disease", ;;recessions and oral piercing . It has reviewed about twentythree articles 17 were narrative reviews and 6 case series RESULTS.: A review was carried out on the origins of oral and perioral body piercing and its local implications, classifying the different alterations like recessions, systemic implications that it can produce in the oral and perioral cavity. CONCLUSION.: Patients with oral and perioral piercing should be regularly followed up because of the possible development of different types of adverse effects. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS.: Adverse effects of oral and perioral piercing can be systemic, with transmission of infectious diseases such as hepatitis B or C, or can be local, with alteration of oral mucosae or even of dental structures.

Figure 4: Fracture of incisors due to a tongue piercing.

Mentions: Changes to dental structure can be produced by parafunctional habits, e.g., bruxism, biting or pushing or by any type of play with piercing jewellery. These changes include fractures (Fig. 4), fissures, abrasions or the detachment of spicules of enamel [4-7]. If there is pulpal involvement, sensitivity to cold or sweet substances, pressure or even breathing can be produced [2]. A study by De Moore et al. in 2000 found some type of dental structure loss like enamel and dentine in 80% of patients with tongue piercings (22). This type of alteration is more frequent with the use of tongue barbells, especially in the molar and premolar area (with a higher prevalence on lingual cusps) and in lower incisors [4-6]. Dental fracture can also result from nerve block due to the local anaesthetic administered for the insertion [2]. Bearers of porcelain crowns have an increased risk of fractures or erosions if they also have oral piercing [21, 22] and patients with large restorations or caries have an increased risk of cusp fractures [5]. Various authors have reported that contact between stainless steel piercing jewellery and silver amalgam can produce a galvanic current (7, 10) that may induce pulpal sensitivity. One author proposed a relationship between “labret” oral piercing and incisor linguoversion triggered by an imbalance of muscle forces [4].
