If you think about it, the body will see the piercing as something outside-or something that should not be there. Firstly, the perforations can damage the oral periodontal tissue. Constant contact between jewelry and gums and teeth structure can cause the recession, chipped teeth, nerve damage and constant inflammation. The mouth itself is not “dirty”, but home to millions of tiny organisms that do have the potential to cause infection.

Question by Jazmin: affordable dental assistant/hygiene schools near san jose ca?
I live in san jose and have been looking for vocational dental schools/training. dont want any real expensive places like Heald, Carrington, Everest etc. please help!
Answer by jannsody
You’re smart to want to avoid those private For-profit schools such as heald, Everest, devry and Carrington. If the local community college (or county vo-tech adult school for dental assistant) has an accredited program from the “American dental association”, those schools are usually more affordable and reputable.
Before taking pre-req courses for dental assisting or dental hygiene, please look through and peruse some dental textbooks such as those found at the local community college library that offers DA or DH or the local dental/medical school library. Some patients may have severe dental disease which may be tough for some to handle. If you haven’t done some job shadowing, please find out about that as well.

History and Benefits of Dental Implants
by Dr. Howard Kopel
The first evidence of dental implants is attributed to the Mayan population roughly around 600 AD where they excelled in utilizing pieces of shells as implants as a replacement for mandibular teeth. The first post-type endosseous implant is attributed to Formiggini (“Father of Modern Implantology”) in the 1940’s. In the ensuing decades many different materials and techniques were employed to find a predictable implant system for replacing missing teeth. In 1978, Dr. P. Brånemark presented a two-stage threaded titanium root-form implant that modern implants are based on. Finally, today our implants have special coatings that promote osseointegration with the bone they are placed in and have become a very predictable modality.
Today it is no longer necessary to have removable partial dentures and full dentures as our parents and grandparents needed after having extractions. Gone are the days that embarrassing and uncomfortable loose dentures must be endured. Drilling down perfectly good teeth to place fixed bridgework is an outdated procedure now that implants are readily available.
Here are many reasons dental implants are often the first choice and a standard of care compared to other options to restore missing or damaged teeth.
