Do you think that tongue piercings can cause problems?

In addition to an increased risk of infection on the tongue as a result of someone having a tongue piercing, I have seen many instances of chipped and broken teeth from biting on a barbell or from a metal ball banging against the front teeth. I have also seen instances of gum recession and bone resorption from the constant trauma. This damage is usually irreversible and may result in tooth loss.
