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).
Tighten the balls on your tongue jewellery before eating.
