09/03/2008

Question:

Hi! I had my tongue pierced 5 days ago. The swelling went down and everything is ok. The only thing is that I have a burning sensation at the tip of my tongue..My pierce told my that this is normal, what do you think? Shall I worry? Or is just because my tongued is shocked? If so, how long shall I wait for this feeling to disappear?

Answer:

As a dentist, I would recommend that you remove the tongue piercing.
