How Do Vibrating Tongue Rings Work?

How do vibrating tongue rings work

The invention is a small body jewelry, specifically designed to be inserted into a tongue piercing, which consists of a motor either with a cylinder design or a flat disc design, powered by a miniature battery. The vibrating portion is self-contained, and no prior art exists to improve upon it.

A variation of a battery bracket is used so that the batteries can be replaceable; the negative wire attached to the motor is soldered to the battery bracket, and the positive wire from the motor is soldered to a metal tab, which acts as a conductor when activated by vibration from the bottom portion of the tongue ring; this allows electricity to travel through the metal tab to the hearing aid battery. The bottom rod from the tongue ring is inserted into the bottom portion, which contacts the metal tab, which activates the vibration by pushing the negative wire on the battery bracket with the positive wire of the motor, which turns the tongue ring, thus vibrating it.

Another consideration to note is that oral jewellery can cause teeth to chip and recede. This is particularly true when you’re using a barbell type ring that constantly bumps against your teeth, which could irritate and erode your teeth or expose sensitive layers of the teeth’s enamel. This could increase the risk of bacterial infections and lead to a dental abscess.

While this isn’t a major issue with vibrating tongue rings, it should be taken into account when considering purchasing one. In addition, it is important to keep in mind that tongue piercings can be a choking hazard so it is best to not wear them while you sleep.
