Thanks to our friends at Dental Products Report, I have compiled a list of the 5 Best Dental iPhone apps:
Perhaps you have a child that needs to be reminded to brush twice daily? There is an app for that. Maybe you need to be reminded to floss every night? There is an app for that. Perhaps you like to be entertained while you brush? We got you covered, as well.
Tooth Brushing Motivator by Motivetrix. This app turns tooth brushing into a fun, interactive painting game. Set the brushing direction for 2 or 3 minutes, and have your child follow along as the toothbrush “paints” the teeth.
Brush It Up by WonderApps. Brush It Up has increasingly difficult levels consisting of tooth-brushing challenges. Letting your child play this game will make them excited when they get to brush their own teeth!
Flossed Today. This is a great app for both kids and adults. In Flossed Today, you can set a daily reminder for flossing. When the alarm goes off, the app asks you, “Have you flossed today?” After all, you only floss the teeth you want to keep!
Brush DJ. Dance while you brush, for 2 minutes, like you are supposed to. Brush DJ puts the disco in your dentition care. No longer do you have stand in front of your mirror foamed to boredom. Now you can dance while the flouride dances on your enamel.
Tooth Fairy Beacon. When your child loses a tooth, place it on the “tooth fairy beacon.” The beacon sends a message to the tooth fairy, who “visits” during the night with a surprise. You can even arrange for the tooth fairy to leave a message for your little on.
