A tongue frenulum piercing or the tongue web piercing is a body piercing through the frenulum underneath the tongue (frenulum linguae). These piercings are relatively simple piercings, and heal quickly, although they do have a tendency to reject over time. Depending on the anatomy of the individual, this piercing may not be feasible. A web piercing may hurt a lot.
Aftercare for tongue frenulum piercings can be more complicated than most other piercings, as the healing piercing will come into contact with anything that enters the mouth, including food and smoke which can cause irritation but they generally heal a lot faster than other body piercings due to the area of the body, where some people have experienced healing times of anything from two to eight weeks. Many certified piercers suggest after care guidelines such as not to engage in oral sex, not to smoke, and regular rinsing with saline or de-iodized salt water. Many professionals recommend rinsing with 50/50 mixture of mouthwash and distilled water or a pH balanced, non-alcoholic mouthwash such as Dentyl pH after eating, drinking, smoking; or rinsing on-the-hour.
Both ring and barbell style jewelry can be worn in these piercings.
