The future is here! Now, we have technology to assist us with almost every facet of our lives. For example, are you looking for ways to monitor and improve your or your child’s brushing habits? There’s an app for that. In fact, there are several. Here are some of our favorites:
Now you can jam out to your favorite song while making sure you brush for the full two minutes. It’s like iTunes, but with a timer, dental tips and reminders to brush regularly, floss and see your dentist twice a year. The app randomly selects a song from your playlist and keeps you entertained during your morning routine. The app is free and available on iTunes.
Sometimes when you talk to your dentist about your oral health, you can become confused by the terms they use. Dental Expert is your guide to understanding dentistry procedures, including some tips on how to care for your own smile. This app includes tips on several dental topics, including what to do in a dental emergency, how to prevent bad breath, and how to help your child care for their teeth properly. Dental Expert is free and is available on iTunes.
This one’s a cool app that gives you the chance to see how you would look with a brighter smile. Using photos from your library, you can compare before and after pictures of yourself with a more beaming smile. Teeth Whitener is $0.99 and is available on iTunes.
Time 2 Brush-
This one’s geared towards the younger brushers of your family. With a few clicks, the app gives your child directions on how to brush while a timer counts down two minutes during a catchy song. For every brushing session recorded, your child earns points that can be used to make customizations to the app.
Thanks to many advances in dental care, both you and your dentist are better equipped to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. If it’s time for a checkup, make an appointment today!
