Could an App on Your Phone Help You Brush More Effectively?

Posted on 11/15/2019 by Cheryl
Could an App on Your Phone Help You Brush More Effectively?There are many applications on the cell phone that can help you exercise better, sleep better and even brush better. Using some of the technologies newest apps can help you step up your oral routine to the next level.

Applications for Children

Nighttime lies about having brushed our teeth can be a thing of the past. We can thank the new applications that can sync to a child's toothbrush. There are toothbrushes that sync to an app that ensures your children brush, but it can also keep your younger ones engaged. With games such as facing off against villains, you conquer them through brushing or month-long trackers with a rewards system.

Whichever you pick, you're able to encourage your children's brushing with some fun and easy to follow routines. When brushing becomes a game at night, it can be much easier to encourage your children to build the habit.

Adult Applications

There are several apps that aren't just for children. With the invention of electronic toothbrushes, it only makes sense to have some linked to a program. By choosing a brush that is connected to an app, you can positively check your brushing habits. These brushes will keep track of the length you brush, pressure you use, even map out your mouth.

Using this data, it can provide you with brush coaching. You can learn to brush areas you may have been neglecting or learn new techniques to improve your nightly routine. There are other apps that will play a song for exactly two minutes to entertain you while signaling when it's time to stop.

Oral applications aren't just limited to brushing. You can find apps that assist with flossing, brushing, and mouthwash.  There are even some apps that keep track of your oral routines and let you know when it's time to make an adjustment. Just keep in mind, an application isn't a good supplement to routine dental visits with our dental professionals.
