When you pierce your tongue does it damage your teeth?

Actually piercing your tongue does not damage your teeth. However, over time the enamel on your teeth can be worn down by the constant rubbing and bumping of the metal against the back of your teeth, or sometimes the front if you are putting the ring through your teeth constantly. The best way to prevent it is to not "play" with the tongue ring between your teeth, and also try using plastic balls instead of the metal ones, which aren't as bad, but still may cause some damage.
