Percements et tatouages communautaires au niveau de la sphère oro-faciale

Abstract : Community piercings and tattoos in the oro-facial sphere are the subject of this work. These practices are becoming more popular and their prevalence is increasing every year. This work aims to improve their understanding and explain the consequences that may occur as a result of their practice to allow better preventive and therapeutic management. After some anatomical reminders, tattoo and piercing practices will be defined as well as the sanitary standards that regulate them. The following sections will present the different practices of piercing and tattoos on the orofacial sphere in different communities of the world (Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Western countries), then their motivations, techniques and tools of realization will be developed. The last part of this work concerns the various consequences that may result on soft, dental, periodontal tissues, the consequences on oro-facial functions and infectious complications that may result.
