Greenfield, WI — June 2, 2016 — Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno recently published a new article, “Pediatric Dental Care: Does Your Teenager Have a Dirty Mouth?!”
In the article, Dr. Cigno starts off by sharing the frightening fact that dental decay is the most common chronic disease among teenagers ages 5 to 17. This is according to the CDC on pediatric dental care.
He adds, “Of course, this problem becomes even more likely in the actual teen years when teenagers are more likely to be attending – or not attending – their family dentistry appointments on their own.”
Dr. Cigno goes on to share some tips from his family dental practice that help teens take care of their teeth. By addressing their pediatric dental care now they can help prevent future dental issues. Some of these tips include limiting soft drinks and juices, proper tooth defense in sports, and avoiding mouth piercings.
