General Piercing Aftercare
Oral Piercing Aftercare
Rinse 4 - 5 times daily for 30 - 60 seconds with one or both of the following: a) An anti-bacterial, alcohol free mouthwash b) A sterile saline solution (not contact solution) with no additives or non-iodized sea salt mixture: Dissolve 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized (iodine free) sea salt into one cup (8 oz) of warm distilled or bottled water (stronger is not better).
Maintain good oral hygiene:
Slurpees, Popsicles and small pieces of ice can help to reduce swelling, as well as an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen. Avoid irritants such as smoking/chewing, alcohol, large amounts of caffeine as well as spicy, salty, acidic (citric) and hot (temperature) foods. Avoid contact with other people's bodily fluids (including saliva).
