Grills – Trendy and Cool, or Dental Nightmare?

Grills have surged in popularity over the past several years with celebrities like Madonna, Beyonce and Rihanna all showing off their own custom grills. Grills have also long been popular in rap culture, displaying a mouthful of bling like Lil Wayne and T-Pain. They can be gold, silver, encrusted with diamonds and gemstones; you imagine it, you can get it.
One major problem, though- wearing these grills can bring about an onslaught of dental issues. Bacteria can get stuck between the grill and your teeth causing decay and gum disease. The grill can permanently move teeth (if not fitted properly) and change your bite. You may require extensive dental work to repair the damage done by a trendy grill – so is it really worth it?
