As parents, we know the importance of good dental hygiene for our children. For kids, however, brushing their teeth is often pretty low on the priority list. This means brushing can turn into a regular battle.
One way to help parents win the fight is to add a little fun to the daily tooth-brushing ritual. There are several smartphone apps on the market that were created to do just that.
These apps can help parents frame brushing more as a challenge or a game rather than a chore. It can make the process less about cleaning and more about having fun!
There are other benefits as well. Some apps show kids how to brush their teeth, and educate them about the importance of dental hygiene. If that sounds boring, find an app that really focuses on the fun stuff.
These apps—and there are dozens—often include things like timers, music or games. You just need to do a little research to find the right one that will work with your child.
And they’re not just for kids. There are many apps designed for adults to help you stay disciplined with your oral hygiene regimen. After all, it’s important to set a good example for the kids. And who knows, maybe it will make brushing more fun for you too!
