Avoid hitting their teeth with your piercing.
When you kiss someone, and you have a tongue piercing, snakebites, or a lip ring, it’s important to be mindful of the other person’s teeth. Piercings can chip teeth and cause oral damage for the other person. Be gentle when you are kissing someone and you have a piercing.
Keeping this in consideration, what is snake bite piercing jewelry?
A snake bite piercing is actually made up of two lower lip piercings, usually placed close to the edge of the lip equidistant from the center on both the left and right sides. There are actually two types of snake bite piercings: ring piercings and labret studs.
Then, how long does it take for snake bite piercings to heal?
6 to 8 weeks
Does a lip ring affect kissing?
When your lip or tongue piercing is healing, you’ll need to keep the jewelry as still as possible. Unfortunately, this means refraining from french kissing for a while. Not only will kissing introduce the healing piercing to debris and bacteria, but it will also cause movement that could damage the piercing.
Ideally, you should wait until you are healed to do anything involving fluids, even with a monogamous partner. … Any oral sex during healing should be fluid-safe, and if you decide to kiss your partner anyway, at least have him or her rinse their mouth before and clean your mouth and piercing after.
Snake bites piercings seem intense, but they aren’t typically considered as painful as other lip piercings, especially those that go through the actual lip. People who’ve had it done rate the pain around 3–5 on a pain scale with 10 being the highest. Many find the clamping more uncomfortable than the actual piercing.
You’ve probably noticed that those with a pierced tongue or lip tend to play with the piercing a lot. This constant clicking and clanking of metal against teeth increase the likelihood of tooth damage – such as chipped teeth, broken teeth, and worn enamel – which can expose teeth to bacteria and decay.
You cannot hide them, they‘re facial piercings. All you could do is possibly buy Neometal labrets that look like small freckles or are flesh coloured. An APP piercer can order and fit these for you or you can buy tem from bodyartforums.
The risks don’t stop there though, he added: “The jewellery itself sits on the back of the teeth. It is almost guaranteed that the client will see gum erosion, cracking/chipping of the teeth, and migration/rejection of the piercing leaving a nasty looking scar.”
Soft, bland foods — like applesauce and yogurt — are preferred. French kissing and oral sex are off-limits during this time. You can do a salt rinse to help minimize any pain and swelling. Ready-made rinses may be available for purchase from your piercer, or you can make your own at home.
