Oral piercings and infections?

Question by Bandit: Oral piercings and infections?
I have heard that oral piercings get infected easier than normal because your moth is dirty, but I have also seen that they don’t get infected easily because your mouth is constantly producing new saliva.

So which is it??

Also, are tongue WEB piercings safe?

If you think about it, the body is going to view the piercing as something foreign- or something that shouldn’t be there. First of all, oral piercings can damage periodontal tissue. Constant contact between the jewelery and gums and tooth structure can cause recession, chipping of the teeth, nerve damage and constant inflammation. The mouth itself is not “dirty” but it home to millions of tiny micro organisms that do have the potential to cause infection. Just because our salivary glands are producing saliva, this does not mean pathogenic micro organisms may/ may not be present.

An infection can become life threatening if it’s not treated promptly, which is why if you do opt for an oral piercing you should maintan proper recare visits to the dentists office.

According to the American Dental Association, “oral piercing carries a potential risk of endocarditis, an inflammation of the heart valves or tissues. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the piercing site in the mouth and travel to the heart, where it can colonize on heart abnormalities. This is a risk for people with heart conditions and, in the worst of cases, results in death.”

affordable dental assistant schools / hygiene near san jose ca?

Question by Jazmin : assistant schools / affordable dental hygiene near san jose ca ?
I live in san jose and have been looking for professional dental schools / training. I do not want no real place, expensive as Heald, Carrington, Everest, etc. please help Best answer:
Reply by jannsody


smart to want to avoid those private for-profit schools such as warp, Everest, devry and Carrington You. If the community college (or county vo-tech school adult dental assistant) has accredited the “American Dental Association” program, schools are often more affordable, good reputación.Antes taking pre-req courses for dental hygiene or dental assistance, please look through and read some books dental, such as those found in the library of the local community college that offers DA or DH or dental school library text / local health. Some patients may have severe dental disease that can be difficult for some to handle. If you have not done some job shadowing, please find out about it también.Para accredited programs in DA or DH: http://www.ada.org/5500.aspxUniversidades U.S.: http://www .utexas.edu / world / univInformación overall career.
