Lip and Oral Piercings
Lip and Oral Piercings
Facial piercings around and in the mouth, also are very popular these days. There are a dozen different types of lip piercings. A few options are Monroe and Medusa/Philtrum piercings above the upper lip, cheek piercings, and Lip or Labret piercings on the lower lip. In addition, tongue piercings and oral frenum piercings inside the mouth are common. Caring for these piercings is slightly different than other piercings. Tongue and oral frenum piercings require swishing with mouthwash and sea salt solution. Any type of lip piercings require cleaning routines that include swishing and soaking.
Oral piercings tend to heal significantly faster than other areas of the body but also tend to swell more than other areas. For this reason, you are pierced with longer jewelry to accommodate for any swelling that may occur.
In general, you should wait 6-8 weeks before changing the jewelry in an oral piercing to ensure it is properly healed. It is also important to note that these piercings will close up much faster than other piercings, so you should not leave your jewelry out for any extended period of time.
