As your child dentist in Katy, we have some apps we would like to recommend to you and your children! We understand that getting your children to brush or getting them to remember to brush can be challenging at times. We wanted to help make your family’s life a little bit easier with apps that we think may help. Some of these apps require a specific brand of toothbrush that matches their collab, so an Oral-B product or Sonicare product. Not every app needs a particular product, so it is up to you to decide what app will suit your family’s lifestyle the best!
Disney Magic Timer by Oral-B
The first app we want to talk about is a partnered app between Disney and Oral-B. This timer app is excellent for getting kids to brush! They must have any Crest or Oral-B Pro-Health Stages product. The app can then scan these products to use them. It is featured as a “Best New App” for kids on the apple store. The app does contain in-app purchases, so be cautious when your children are on the app.
The app contains a brushing calendar so your children can track their brushing progress. Your child can customize their experience by creating their own brusher profile. As they continue to brush over time, they can collect digital stickers to place in their digital albums! The app, of course, contains a fun Disney timer, so your children know how long they need to brush for. The app contains fun characters like Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Ariel, Belle, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Lightning McQueen, Mickey, and more!
Philips Sonicare for Kids
There is another brand that also makes its own app for its child users, Sonicare. If you have a hard time getting your children to brush their teeth or remembering to brush every day, this app can also be useful to you. The app is free to download, and parents love it! On the app store, it says that 98% of parents surveyed say it is easier to get their children to brush longer and better thanks to this app.
The app uses a character named Sparkly, who is a furry creature with a great big smile who needs helps fighting off bacteria bugs. You have to connect your child’s Sonicare for Kids Bluetooth connected kids’ toothbrush to brush away the bacteria. As children brush daily, they can win presents and new features. They will also learn better brushing techniques, receive awards for brushing, and get healthy food tips. The app lets you set reminds so your children will be able to get that reminder if they forget to brush.
A dentist developed this app for those who want to reduce their risk of gum disease and tooth decay, those who want to brush better, and those who want to make brushing more fun! People of all ages can use this app, so if you and your child want to brush together in the mornings, you can. This toothbrush timer app plays two minutes of music from your device. You can use music from your cloud or one of your streaming services.
The app allows you and your child to use whichever toothbrush you’d like. It also lets you set reminders like when to brush, floss, mouthwash, when to change your toothbrush, and when to visit your child dentist in Katy! In the app, you can pick the color of the screen or create color combinations to help get you pumped about brushing. The app contains short animated videos showing how to do basic oral hygiene tasks like flossing and brushing.
Toothsavers Brushing Game
Toothsavers Brushing Game is an app that needs your child to save a fairytale kingdom with the help of their toothbrush! The app has a fun and creative storyline, so your child may even forget that they have to practice good oral hygiene. Your child will be given two minutes to brush away the evil spell from the people of the kingdom’s mouths. Afterward, your child will have to then save their own mouth by brushing their teeth for two minutes. After thirty straight days of brushing, your child will be able to defeat the villain themselves.
