The state of Texas has great dental coverage for the people who live in Houston. Dental Coverage is very important to have because you never know when you will have a dental emergency. Make sure you are covered get dental coverage that is right for you. Affordable coverage is the key. . One of the …oldest charity clinics in the United States, San JosÃ© Clinic has provided healthcare to the uninsured since 1922. It is the only full-time clinic in the Greater Houston area dedicated exclusively to serving the uninsured.More than 1.1 million--one in every three--persons in the Houston/Harris County area lack health insurance. The demand for low-cost care in this area is consistently greater than available community resources. Primary healthcare for the uninsured is grossly inadequate, and specialty care is almost non-existent. Because of the Clinic's extensive corps of volunteers and teaching affiliations, patients are able to access specialty services in addition to primary healthcare. A bit more: Dental schools often offer extremely low prices on all sorts of dental services. The dental interns work pretty much as M.D. interns do, working under the supervision of experienced doctors to obtain experience, while at the same time providing quality care for patients. Dental colleges offer the same quality of services, just not in hospitals where M.D. interns do their residency. So I would advise you to check with local dental colleges to see what kind of services they offer. You just may be pleasantly surprised. ( Full Answer )
That is simple, you don't. Only get your tongue pierced, or anything else pierced by a professional. You have veins in your tongue, and if you puncture them you could bleed to death. Answer Don't do it...if you do it incorrectly you could bleed to death like that person above me said or your t…ongue can split and then you won't be able to talk...at least that's what I heard from my friend who has her tongue pierced. Answer: You cannot bleed to death from a tongue piercing, unless of course you let your tonge drip blood for five days or so. You also cannot bifurcate your tongue by piercing it. You can however contaminate your tools from improper procedures and end up with a sever infection that could travel into the brain (as has happened to TWO people ever). Other risks include nerve damage and bleeding, but they are not as likely or dangerous as the infection. Just go to a professional. ANOTHER ANSWER: Well, I'd say you probably wouldn't bleed to death... but it could be some serious bleeding and problems if you do it wrong. I've given people tips on self piercing before, though I think you should go to a professional, or at least an apprentice or someone with training... but I'm not going to tell you how to pierce your own tongue. Some piercings, I think, are ok to self pierce (if done properly with proper equipment... meaning NO SAFETY PINS, ETC!!) but I think a tongue piercing should be done by someone with much more knowledge of piercings than yourself or one of your friends. well i have mine sne and anit nothin rong wit it....omg i did my belly bii miself n mii ears ANOTHER ANSWER: actually i pierced my tongue myself, and it did nothing i have had it pierced now for four years, but you CAN bleed to death and paralyze half your face i do all my piercings myself!!! you don't pierce it yourself you go to a reputable piercer and have them do it. The reasons you should not attempt to pierce your self should be obvious, but for those who think it's a "DIY" project, here's some food for thought. Infection and contraction of MRSA, HIV, Meningitis, Hepatitis and Tetanus are all very serious health issues, MRSA is an antibiotic resistant bacteria that can in most cases land the unlucky individual in the hospital (and has been responsible for serious deformities and deaths). These infections has been caused by using unsterilized equipment and materials. Sterilization is not achieved by pouring alcohol over needles and jewellery, or burning these items over a fire or exposed flame. Microorganisms live in the fine fissures and cracks in needles and jewellery and only the high temperature and pressure of a steam Autoclave can render these and many other bacteria harmless. The above reasons alone should be enough to sway anyone from thinking they can do it themselves. Professional body piercers have years for hands on training and education to enable them to make any piercing "look simple", when in fact they are considering dozens of things when they lay out a piercing and actually do it. So consider your lack of knowledge, training and skills before you attempt to do any self piercing, once you pierce it, it's damaged tissue. This makes it even more difficult for a professional piercer to leave you with a great looking piercing when the area we have to work with is damaged by self inflicted attempts. ANOTHER ANSWER: Professionally. I had my friend do all my piercings , except my tongue . ( Full Answer )
Yes, it is possible. As long as you have about 1cm of space between the tip of your tongue and your tongue frenulum, you can get this part of your tongue pierced. You may also get your tongue pierced off-center, either to the left hand or right hand side of your tongue, if you are too tongue tied to… have a central tongue piercing. If neither of these is possible, and you still wish to have an oral piercing, then a tongue frenulum piercing or a "smiley" piercing are optional. _________________________ It should also be noted that an oral surgeon can perform a lingual frenectomy which will allow you more room. It may mess with your speech for a few days to a couple weeks but your tongue will be more nimble in the end and may in fact improve your speech. This is not a risky procedure when performed by an oral surgeon but you can damage glands at the base of your tonge and on the floor of your mouth if you attempt it yourself and infection is probable if done on your own. Risk of infection which could lead to death if not dealt with properly, glandular damage, the probability of shock which will cause you to pass out and could lead to other problems, uncontrollable bleeding and other factors are all issues if attempted on your own. It depends on how badly your tongue is tied, you would be best to talk to your local professional body piercer. If there is too much restriction or the web is too developed it would be dangerous to even consider trying to pierce it. ( Full Answer )

\n. \n Crooked Tongue Piercing \n. \n. \nthat happened to me the first time i got mine done. just take it out let it heal up for about a week then go tell them that it was crooked. they should do it for free
Your insurance is good for any work you have done from this point forward. It does not cover work that was performed prior to having the insurance.
I want my tongue pierced but im only 15 and you need to be 16 to have a piercing would my boyfriend whos 18 be able to take me to have it done?
This all depends on state laws. As far as I know all states abide by "Parent and/or Legal Gaurdian" laws and that means that he would not be able to.
For the first week your tongue will be very tender and sore. It will be especially hard to eat for the first 48-36 hours. Only drink liquids and eat foods like soup (not too hot though) or ice cream (not too cold though). Fruit shakes are great. Take it slow. After that initial healing period, ea…ting with a tongue ring is totally normal. You won't notice it after a while. ( Full Answer )
\nOne source of lower-cost dental care is a dental school clinic. Generally, dental costs in school clinics are reduced and may include only partial payment for professional services covering the cost of materials and equipment. Your state dental society can tell you if there is a dental school clin…ic in your area. ( Full Answer )
This piercing is done by a professional body piercer and the jewellery is sized for the individual client being pierced. WikiAnswers will not provide how to information that can lead to personal injury.
Generally how it is done depends on the piercer. Sometimes they will use a clamp and sometimes they will mark out and do the piercing free hand depending on what they are more comfortable with doing. There is a difference between the horizontal tongue piercing and a scoop tongue piercing. Horizontal… goes straight through the sides of the tongue and a scoop piercing is more like a typical surface piercing (called a scoop because of the curved barbell used in the procedure) Basically the piercer will mark out the piercing and clamp it (optional) they will then pass the needle through the tongue or into the tongue and back out again in a curved motion for the scoop piercing, after the needle is through the jewelery will be threaded, balls tightened etc, all done. The jewelery that SHOULD be used for both the horizontal and scoop piercings is either a PTFE (a type of plastic) with either metal or PTFE balls. The only other option that will give best results is a Tygon (another type of plastic, generally better for movement but needs replacing regularly) and again either metal or PTFE balls. If the piercer says "YES" to this piercing but offers a STAINLESS STEEL or TITANIUM barbell you should find someone else to do this piercing as it is probable that they have either not done this piercing before and dont have the right skill set and there are a lot of unnecessary complications that can come from metal bars through the tongue ie. speech impediment, difficulties eating, chewing, swallowing etc. There is a lot of factors to consider about this piercing, do not jump into something like this without reading up on it a fair amount first. THIS PIERCING IS A MORE DIFFICULT PIERCING TO PERFORM, PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR PIERCER IS QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED WITH THIS TYPE OF PIERCING. Hi :) sorry but just fort i shud let you know, Mine was marked out && clamped i have a PTFE bar With metal balls. Eating is a aweful. My piercer had never done this piercing before but i totally trusted her && went ahead with it anyway :) if youu really want it GO 4 IT !! x ( Full Answer )
You can't. I went through medically needy share of cost and I have called every medicaid dentist on the list for Florida, no one takes it. So after an ER visit for an abscessed tooth, I was switched to Medicaid for the rest of the month. After another week of calling dentists I find that 99% of them… only see children. Good luck, if you find any answers please let us know. ( Full Answer )
Put a clamp on your tongue. Then poke the needle through. They usually use a 16-14G Needle. I went in to have mine done with my sister, she was getting her lip done so whilst she was doing that the other man froze my tongue, it didn't numb completely but it did a bit. They lay me down, wiped m…y tongue so it weren't that wet, put a clamp on it to hold it in place, dot it with a special pen, and then push the needle through it, mine were actually a needle, it was more of a very sharp plastic. It hurts but no bad, once I got out I was eating pizza, but just ot be sure I got listerine and a new toothbrush and to keep it cool, I'm having lots of slush puppies! YAY! ( Full Answer )
Depends on the piercing shop you go to, some places ( such as two of the places i went before) you needed to be 18, due to the risks involded with the piercing. Other then that anyone can, as long as the veins in the tongue do not go into the desired piercing spots, anyone can get a tongue ring.
A small clamp is put onto your tongue to get it in the right place, then, a needle is pushed through your tongue, followed by the bar.
Someone gets their tongue pierced. 1. because they think it looks cool. 2. just because they want one. 3. because it's nice when kissing (and other things you do with your mouth involving another person... ahem)
Get it done by a piercing professional in a licensed piercing parlor. If you do it yourself or have someone else do it for you, you risk some very dangerous infections.

A tongue piercing is a piercing through the tongue or any part of the tongue, including the web underneath.
Not if the dental work is wisdom teeth removal. Sucking on a straw will cause the stitches to come out and the incisions to start bleeding again.
I really considering getting my tongue pierced but i am terrified about the pain what is it like getting it done?
They pierce tongues in the line running down the middle of them. There aren't any pain nerves in that line--so when you get your tongue pierced you won't feel very much if anything at all.
Yes, however it's not the piercing it's self that causes the throat infection but actually the jewellery in the piercing that can cause the infection.. Tongue barbells need to be removed and cleaned, even more so with internally threaded barbells ** ( ** these are barbells where the ball has a thr…eaded post in it and it threads into the shaft ) these barbells have a hollow void in the center and can draw in body fluid and bacteria and allow it to grow inside the barbell shaft.. This bacterial growth will cause repeated infections until the jewellery is removed and cleaned or removed and replaced with new jewellery. Please keep this in mind, all jewellery needs to be removed from piercings and given a really good cleaning every couple of months over an above the normal cleaning you give it when bathing. ( Full Answer )
No the retainers do not provide enough room for the swelling that you will encounter in the first 72 hours post piercing, you need to have a barbell first, then you can go to a retainer in about 2 to 3 weeks time.
Because the tonuge is a muscle, it heals up as soon as you take it out, so i would recomend you keep it in, even if it is healed.
How old do you have to be to get your tongue pierced in Virginia or where can it be done without parents?
Body Piercing Guidelines or "I want a piercing, now what" . All Body Piercing studios are regulated and work under regional and local health and city licensing regulations. . Age limits can vary from city to city and state/province to state/province, contact your local body piercing studios (un…der the yellowpages "Body Piercing" ) they will tell you what the age limits are for your area. . Identification is aways needed (Birth certificate, Student card, Drivers license) Parental consent is consent from the legal parents (Mother or Father). Grand parents, Sister, Brother, Second Cousin twice removed doesn't cut it sorry. Unless they are your legal guardians assigned by the courts and have documented proof or this, it just won't work. . Prices for piercings vary from shop to shop and city to city. Be sure you phone and ask them what the total price is including any *aftercare solutions they may try to sell you (* Professional body piercing studios won't try to sell you aftercare solution, they will recommend cleansers and soaps but that's it if you want it they will sell it but they will not force you to buy it.) . Do your research , check these places out and find a studio that you are comfortable with, talk to the piercer and discuss you wishes. If at any time you feel like you are being ignored or rushed leave, find somewhere else. Good shops will be busy, but they will also want you to book your appointment, this way they have there full attention on you not everyone else who is asking questions (that's a good thing).

Infections, side effects and healing issues are all points you need to discuss with your professional body piercer BEFORE you get the piercing done. You also need to discuss aftercare for the piercing, this should be followed up with written aftercare instructions for your piercing. No professional …body piercer will force you to purchase aftercare products, this is a purchase that is up to you and they can only recommend specific products but they can force you to buy what they have. Listen to what you are told and follow the aftercare to the letter and remember if you are having issues with bumps and lumps or discharge go back to the shop that did the piercing and talk to the piercer. They must help you resolve any healing issues you may be having. Don't solicit advice from anyone who is not a professional body piercer, just because one thing worked for someone else doesn't mean it will work for you. Healing issues need to be looked at first hand so the problem can be recognised and resolved, the Internet is just a guessing game. ( Full Answer )
Well I would have got the dental work done first then the piercing but that's just me. Well if your dentist is reasonable there should be no issue so long as the barbell doesn't get in his/he way.
try go to a place where they sell/ do pierces like jewelry stores or something.
Do you mean before or after the mercury battery explodes in your mouth? Listen those barbells are dangerous, they were supposed to be removed from the market due to the risk factors of poisoning and choking. Mercury batteries are never supposed to be placed inside the mouth for obvious reasons.
Because some people like the way it looks. some people believe it increases pleasure during oral sex...
The medication that was placed to numb your nerves ( so the dental work can be done ) takes time for your body to absorb, metabolize and excrete. The numbness means that there is still medication blocking the nerve, which will pass.
It has no true purpose. Some people consider it beautiful and some just want one.
wash it with listerine after every meal, NEVER take it out though. Chew ice or drink smoothies/icees for the swelling. take ibuprofen for the pain/swelling too. eat more soups/soft things, it hurts alot to eat. everythings over in like two weeks, then you can do whatever you want! OHH: do NOT eat sp…icy things! ----> Ok, Do NOT wash it with listerine. Listerine contains alcohol which is a NO NO as far as oral piercings are concerned. Try a non-alcoholic rinse, like ACT. You don't have to wash it after EVERY meal--but most major meals, or, more often if you're a smoker or a drinker. Try to stray away from any milk products, as they create a thicker saliva that causes the swelling to go up. Chewing on ice can cause you to accidentally hit the barbell on your teeth-- try gently sucking on ice. Stray from spicy foods, and citrus-- and if you're looking to keep the piercing HEALTHY, I suggest you keep up with your oral care (ex. brushing your teeth 2x a day, rinsing your piercing as suggested above, and avoiding "clicking" the barbell against your teeth.)

If there is a dental school (college) nearby, you may be able to get your dental work done there, if not for free, then at least at a very reduced cost. You can also check with the ADA (American Dental Association) to see what programs they can recommend for free dental service, as well as your lo…cal Dept. of Health and Family Services.

It doesn't hurt, you feel a pinch and a sting. Oh and a tear might come out. Like Getting vaccinated. After you get it done, don't eat, don't yawn. Gargle with mouthwash and good luck!
When you have a dental checkup and you have to have work done do you have it there and then or make another appointment?
Depends on the nature and extent of the work. In general you can expect to have to make another appointment for anything major; if it's just filling a small cavity, the dentist may (or may not) have built some "slip time" into his scheduling and might be able to take care of it right then.
It is known that George Harrison had a dentist since the Beatles have long told the story that it was George's dentist who gave he and John their first LSD experience. If one compares photographs of George from 1963-1966 to photos from 1968-1969, it appears that George had some cosmetic work perform…ed on his front teeth. A chipped tooth seems to have been capped, a cavity filled, and his smile (especially on the cover of the Let It Be album) seems to be much brighter. ( Full Answer )
This all depends on where you live. I could recommend many dentists in my area but I am unsure of where you are located.
The jewelry is probably too short/tight. Go see a piercer and have them check it out to be sure what it is exactly an for them to fit you with the proper length barbell :)
Of course you can, the only difference from someone with a longer tongue is that the piercing would have to be a bit closer to the end of your tongue. Other then that it doesn't change anything.
Nope, i've had my tongue pierced, and i didn't have to take my lip piercing out.
I don't think there is any hard and fast answer to this question. Can you have it done? yes. Is it a good idea? No. Because of the close contact involved, you risk exposing your dental professional to the flu needlessly. Also, many times the gag reflex is hyperactive when you are sick so it just isn…'t a good idea. ( Full Answer )
Any payment for dental work depends on your insurance coverage because there are many different dental insurance policies. You should read through the information for your dental insurance policy. You could also contact the agent responsible for your dental insurance policy.
since the metal in the piercing is filled with iron the iron will irritate the tongue therefore causing the tongue to swell and turn yellow

The best place to get a tongue piercing done would be at a local tattoo or piercing shop, however many Beauty Salons and now even some shops offer this service at affordable prices.
