There are apps for everything these days, so it only makes sense that there are a few designed specifically for oral health. Whether you’re having trouble sticking to an oral care routine, or you want to make sure your pearly whites stay bright and sparkly — here are 5 apps you’ll want on your smartphone or tablet.
This app explains dental procedures and treatment options, if ever you are curious or forget exactly what your dentist said about a certain procedure. It puts all the concepts in layman’s terms for easy readability, and is laid out in an accessible, user-friendly menu along with fun dental facts and myths as well!
This app allows first time parents to gain knowledge of anything from correct teething schedules to understanding overbites and how to fix them. Whatever the concern is for the little one, most of the information will be on here, right at your fingertips!
We know that visiting the dentist for the first time can be frightening at a young age, but with this app it doesn’t have to be! This specific app allows kids to “be the dentist” and put themselves in their shoes. They can play around fixing teeth and hopefully become less fearful of actually attending appointments. It even allows them to play-sit in the dental chair to feel more comfortable!
Flossing is one of the most important things we can do for our oral health, but remembering to do it is sometimes difficult! With this app, keeping track of flossing and nurturing the habit becomes way easier. The app sets reminders and allows you to schedule specific times for flossing.
5. Brush DJ
Two minutes is the suggested time for brushing but sometimes we fall short of that. With Brush DJ you can use any song and it cuts it to exactly two minutes, so when the songs ends, the brushing is complete! How clever!
