Mouth Mashers

Flashy mouth jewelry is trendy, but dentists warn of a dark side behind the glitter. Some patients find sporting a mouth full of metal isn't all it's cracked up to be.

A year ago, 28-year-old Jorge Ahmed had his tongue pierced and grills put on his teeth. "A couple of friends we decided to do it. We thought it was fun, but it wasn't that great for me." Maybe for a particular event, but do not use them on permanent basis." It's taken jorge nearly a year to get his tongue, teeth and gums healthy again.

"Every time you affect your mouth, every time you affect your teeth, every time you affect your temporal mandibular joint, the whole body, head to toe suffers. And one needs to wonder, is it really worth it?"  Jorge's answer is a healthy natural smile.
