PTFE and bioflex jewelry makes your teeth and gums thank you☺
Since PFE and bioflex are hypoallergenic materials they are well suited for new piercings. This means that these materials are safe and don't cause allergic reactions. Characteristic for these types of materials is that they are flexible and light, which means that jewelry made out of PTFE and bioflex shapes after your body as well as prevents piercings from tearing or closing up. Both of these materials are flexible but PTFE is slightly more flexible than Bioflex. They both have a light transparent color. PTFE and Bioflex is among other things used as material for the long and flexible bars of pregnancy belly piercings. Bioflex is also popularly used in lip piercings since this soft material is more gentle to the teeth and gums than surgical steel or titanium.
You can also easily cut bars that are made of PTFE or bioflex to get the size that suits you the best. Then make threads in the bar simply by screwing a ball, for example made out of surgical steel, on to the bar. Thanks to this you can use pregnancy belly piercings also after the pregnancy.
PTFE can be put in an autoclave and bioflex can well stand different types of detergents.
