ODHA Dental Hygiene Facts:

Ludwig’s angina is a life-threatening acute bacterial infection of the floor of the mouth caused when bacteria enter the bloodstream through the open wound (piercing site). This is a serious condition as the swelling from inflammation can block the air passage and prevent saliva from being swallowed.

Body piercers are not members of the medical profession: They do not review health history, prescribe antibiotics or provide post-op care.

Contaminated piercing equipment can lead to other infections such as blood borne hepatitis (B, C, D and G) as well as HIV and AIDS.
