Thread: Snakebites Uneven on the inside?

  1. #1

    Default Snakebites Uneven on the inside?

    I just got my snakebites done yesterday. From the outside, they look fine. But from the inside, they are pretty uneven. I'm not truly worried about the look, but more for the safety of my teeth... I'm scared that I will chomp down on one of my studs. I still have the longer bars in until 2 weeks when I can go back to my piercer and get shorter ones. Should I go back early and see what my piecer has to say, or will it really be that big of a problem once I get shorter studs or fitted rings? I would appreciate your opinions.

    Unfortunately this can be a pretty common problem with snakebites-when I got mine they were the same and I ended up retiring them.However, I would wait till you get them downsized because though they may not be even at the back if they feel fine to you then there's no point retiring one.I couldn't stand the feeling that they were in different positions, but for you it may not be a problem.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    my cheeks are uneven on the inside. The woman who did them said they might be a little. But they're perfect on the outside and I rarely notice the inside :/

    Well, if they don't bother your teeth or gums, and they look just fine from the outside, who is really going to be examining the inside of your mouth to see if they line up straight? I'd say just leave them. =)

    Sometimes piercers will have to go in at angle to get the right placement both in and outside so a little bit of a difference can be expected occasionally but there is no excuse for having one so much different from the other. I would go back and complain, see if you can get a partial refund or something.

    I'd be worried that the slightly higher one will catch your teeth or rub the enamel but you could always wait and see how it goes if you are happy with the outside appearance!

    Mine is the same as yours,the one on my left is higher that the one on my right,but it doesn't bother me,i never bite down on them or anything but it might be different for you.If your that worried about it,see what your piercer has to say.
