    I was woundering if you get a labret done does the back side rub against ur teeth/gum and damage your gums or enamile or anything like that? Basically what are the health treaths assosiated with them?

    thanks!

    I've had mine for about a month and after the swelling went down, I've not had an issues with it rubbing my teeth or anything like that.

    they also sell acrylic jewelry in case you have sensitive gums

    mine is in the "proper" positition and still i got some minor rubbing on my gums. so i just got a teflon labret stud. u use your stainless ball/spike and it just screws on to the soft teflon stud. its an awesome alternative imo, if you want i can take a pic of it, out of my mouth if u'd like. let me know.

    generally there are 2 types of backs for labret jewelry. One is a round flat piece of metal, a few of my friends had these and didn't like them. They could feel it rubbing and it became annoying. The other is called a fishtail. It is a long piece of metal, the same size as the piecing that is bend to mold to you gums. So it fits between the lip and gums and rubs less. My friends like these better. Both will probably cause problems a few years down the road, as far as rubbing and irritating that area of the gums, since it is sensitive tissue. but nothing that would be considered a medical problem.

    its all about what you are comfortable with. i've had a few customers of mine say they dont like the fishtails because they tend to fall out in there sleep, but it may be different to you.

    I only used the term medical problems, in refernce to your questions of labrets being a health threat. They are not, if your gums are sensitive, they may begin to feel raw and irritated with antyhing there, because the back of the jewelry will rub against of the gums, it's just a matter of how much you willing to let it get to you.

    I do agree with Buttons, with the fishtails not having a large back piece than the piercing, they are nore prone to falling out. I hadn't thought about that. Just means be careful with it, and it might make sense to throw something else in while you sleep.

    I have both types - flat back and fishtail.

    I prefer the flat back about 11ty billion to one over the fishtail. if you get a short enough stud length between the back and the ball on the front (mine is 3/8) then it fits snug enough that it doesn't rub against your gums or teeth and it's not too short that it is uncomfortable.

    It is actually a henna tattoo that I had done by a friend last Summer and yes, the design is awesome.

    I took lots of hi-res pictures so that I cold reproduce it in ink some day. Unfortunately all of those hi-res pics are on a hard drive that is DOA right now and I don't know if they are recoverable. That's the only pic I have of it.

    They will probably pierce it with at least 1/2" due to swelling. I would wait and see how much room you have there after the swelling goes down, the 3/8" post may be too tight.

    I got my labret done with 14ga - come to think of it, same as my nipple. I think I paid about that for my labret but I can't really remember.

    If you remove your jewelry your hole will heal but you will be left with a small visible scar. It will look like... well, like you have a small hole in your chin.
