5 Apps to Benefit Your Dental Hygiene

Posted by: Dr. Sirakian     Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Alright all you tech savvy smart phone owners: time to put your phone to good use in helping with your oral health! We all use our phones all day everyday, but did you know that among the millions of apps out there, there are actually quite a few that aim to help improve our dental hygiene? Here are five to get you started.

First we have the Dental Expert app. 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!

Next up, a Pediatric Dental Expert app that 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!

Speaking of children, we know that visiting the dentist for the first time can be frightening at a young age, but with the Tiny Dentist 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!

Hmm, did we remember to floss today? Flossing is one of the singlehanded most important things we can do for our oral health, but remembering to is sometimes difficult! With the app Flossy, keeping track of flossing and nurturing the habit becomes way easier. The app sets reminders and allows you to schedule specific times for flossing.

Lastly, we have 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!
