Subtle and Sophisticated Lip Frenulum Piercings and More
Lip frenulum piercings together with web piercings and other types of oral piercings are subtle and sophisticated. While some of them are easily seen when you smile or laugh, the other ones can be shown by choice. The element of surprise and the playfulness of oral piercings are mostly appreciated by the youngsters, but a smiley would look great on anyone! If you want to pierce your tongue or add more interesting piercings inside your mouth, you will definitely find inspiration below!
The pain factor
The lip frenulum, as well as the tongue frenulum is a thin tissue with high sensitivity. The good news is that piercing them will only take a second compared to other thicker body parts. Even so, because of the nerve endings found in there, you might experience greater pain that will only last for a few seconds. When it comes to tongue piercings, the pain will definitely be more acute due to its thickness and type of tissue. If you’re looking for a brighter side, think about how fast oral piercings heal! The tongue piercing will be healed in one month and the other ones really close to that too!
The cleaning routine
All oral piercings will swell and will not make you want to brush your teeth. However, you have to brush your teeth to keep bacteria away. Besides carefully brushing your teeth, it is recommended to wash your entire mouth with alcohol free mouthwash or with warm salt water twice per day. This routine should be consistently followed until your tissues are healed. Oral hygiene is highly important in general, not to mention for people who wear piercings. Upper lip frenulum piercings and lower lip frenulum piercings will touch your teeth, so proceed with care.
During the healing process, you should avoid alcoholic beverages, cigarettes and spicy food. There’s nothing sophisticated in an irritated frenulum. The sooner it heals, the better it will look and make you feel! As for kissing, I’m sure you know Frenching someone with a sore tongue is no breeze, so keep your germs for yourself for a while! Last but not least, make sure you choose comfortable jewelry! Here are some ideas to get you going!
