New App Makes Brushing Fun!
David L. Steed
Brushing our teeth twice a day for 2 minutes takes a very small portion of our time, but even just 2 minutes can feel like an eternity to a child. That is why fun products like the FREE tooth brushing app from Oral B are so much fun!
The new Disney Magic Timer app features your child’s favorite Disney characters as part of an interactive stopwatch. This app (available on Iphone and Android) is cleverly designed to promote a healthy mouth with programmable reminders and an interactive sticker chart. The timer itself allows you to scan Disney and Marvel themed characters on your tooth brush or tooth paste to create scenes that your child can earn every time they brush their teeth. These fun rewards are collected as part of an album that can be viewed and shared with others to incentive brushing twice a day per dentist recommended guidelines.
The interactive timer is an excellent way to emphasize good brushing habits that build a healthy smile. At The Center of Dental Professionals and A Kids Place Dentistry we love to see cavity free kids in our offices. By using this fun new timer you can use positive reinforcement to keep their little mouths clean and healthy. If they are cavity free on their next visit, we will give them a certificate and a prize for being a part of our “No Cavity Club.”
