Brilliant internally threaded and made of soft material to protect one's gums!!! PLEASE MAKE THIS IN 14g PLEASE!!!
These are so boss to stop gum recession! :)
this is good coz it stops ur teeth from getting knocked out
I noticed the first signs of gum recession while wearing a metal labret stud, and immediately placed an order for the Bioplast labret stud.
Since I fall in between two sizes (somewhat longer than 8 mm) I ordered the 10 mm one and cut it to the proper length quite easily. A nail file helped me with the sharp edges, but then the second trick came in place: putting the ball on/in. Fiddling a lot at first, but when you put latex gloves on it works like a charm. It fits nicely, hardly no rubbing anymore and the overall feel is very comfortable.
I did notice, that after cutting the thread in the stem, there appeared to be some small cracks in the stud. I reckon this is pretty normal, since there is a wire forced into the stem and it didn't cause any problems (e.g. ball loosening or outside damage to the stem).
Some starter tips:
- wear latex gloves while handling stem & ball, gives you a perfect grip.
- screw and unscrew the ball into the stem a couple of times, before placing it in your piercing.
- if you cut them down to a perfect fit, a nail file is you best friend, especially if it has a polish side to it.
Other than that? No more metal for me!!
These things are really comfortable in the mouth, but sweet lord i nearly went insane trying to get it to all fit together right! The stem is not acctually threadead itself, the action of screwing in a titanium ball cuts the thread as it goes - dry run recommended, and make sure you've got lots of time and a long fuse. Worth it in the end though :)
