ABSTRACT
The article presents two case studies involving two teenagers who suffered fractured teeth from barbell-like rods they had inserted in their tongues as a form of body piercing. The impact the metal device can have on teeth is likened to the effect of a wrecking ball and can cause a number of oral complications. Details of a case involving a girl with a fractured maxillary right central incisor and of a boy with a lingual shearing fracture to his mandibular right first molar are presented.
