Technology today is quite advanced. In fact, it’s so advanced that it can help your child care for and learn more about their smile. This means your smartphone or tablet can obtain applications that can help your child and their oral health. Our dentist, Dr. Daniel Sahutske, and dental team appreciate this about technology, so we would be happy to tell you about these fun dental applications.
The first is “Disney Magic Timer,” which was created by Disney and Oral-B. This app has a character that encourages your child to brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. The character also brushes with your child and plays games with them as they scrub-a-dub-dub. Your child can also collect stickers and have matching smile-cleaning tools as the character.
The second is “Virtual Dentist.” This app lets your child upload their picture and see what certain dental treatments would look like on their smile. This could be a good way of getting your child ready for a future dental appointment. They can see what they would look like with dental fillings, braces, and veneers. They can even see what they would look like with dirty teeth, which might motivate them to clean their smile.
The third is “Tiny Dentist.” This app has different characters and themes to choose from. It will take your child through the fun journey of being a dentist. Your child can clean teeth, fix cavities, improve odorous breath, place implants, and whiten smiles.
