Mouth Grills

Mouth grills (grillz or fronts ) and jewelry may bring some bling to your mouth, but the American Dental Association says wearers should take notice.

Grills and jewelry can cause:

  • Infection
  • Tooth Decay
  • Gum Disease
  • Chipped teeth
  • Allergic reaction

Unless used with extreme care, grills are a breeding ground for bacterial. The bacteria causes tooth decay and gum disease.

Wearers should be careful to:

  • Brush and floss teeth twice each day
  • Limit time spent wearing grills
  • Remove grills before eating
  • Avoid grills and jewelry made of products dangerous to ingest

If you are thinking about getting a dental grill, talk to your dentist first. Grills might be trendy for the moment, but "pearly whites" will never go out of style.
