Swelling

Tongue piercing comes w continued pain as well as swelling, tenderness, bleeding & bruising for around 5 days. If the swelling makes it difficult to breath then you need emergent medical evaluation to ensure that your airway does not become compromised. If the tongue is seeping drainage that is other then white-colored or that is malodorous – then seek medical care for a possible infection.

No way for us to know if it is inflamed, you have a hematoma or it's infected. See a dentist for an evaluation right away. Before you consider any oral piercing please be aware they are prone to infections and often cause broken teeth and sometimes gum recession.

How long after a tongue piercing can I drink beer?

No special wait

Tongue
There's no specific problem with having beer if you have a rogue piercing. There are several problems though having the tongue rings, etc! Infections, accidental lacerations and chipped teeth all are likely over time.

How long should you wait after getting a tongue piercing before having a dental procedure?

Wait for healing

Let the wound heal. Better yet, remove the tongue jewelry. It can cause dental problems such as broken teeth and gum recession.

I go Tuesday to have 2 front teeth cut out, do I have to take out my tongue piercing & if so will it close up? How long does procedure take?

Take it out anyways

I would take out the piercing prior to the extractions and would recommend not putting it back in. The tongue piercing can contribute to TMJ/TMD issues, tongue thrust- moving the teeth forward and infections. Why take the chance.

Can tongue piercing hurt?

YES!

Pain
It is very painful during and afterwards. There is a high risk of infection as well. Expect pain, swelling, difficulty talking and eating . If you place a metal stud, expect to break teeth as well. It is not a recommended procedure from this dentists point of view.
