As adults we know that keeping your teeth and mouth clean is extremely important. Kids on the other hand sometimes tend to overlook oral hygiene. Dr. Medwid educates her patients, young and old, in proper brushing and flossing, but we (and kids especially) can get a little lackadaisical in our efforts. It should come as no surprise that there is an app that addresses this issue. Introducing the award-winning, NHS approved toothbrush timer app: Brush DJ. Brush DJ is an app that makes taking care of your teeth more enjoyable, and more effective.
Brush DJ is a dream-come-true for kids, and their parents who want to see them healthy and happy. It is an app, created by dentists, that plays two minutes of music. The music is taken at random from your iPhone, iPod, or iPad, and when the song stops, you can stop brushing! The app gives a little ping to let you know your brushing progress every 30 seconds and you get a round of applause once 2 minutes is up. The app will remind you to brush twice per day, to floss, and to NOT rinse your mouth, but instead use a fluoride mouthwash at a different time.
Not only is the app good for the day-to-day brushing, but it’s looking out for your oral care in the long run as well. The app will remind you when it’s time to change your toothbrush, and will offer evidence-based age specific educational information that you can read at your convenience. The app will also send you a reminder when it’s time for your next visit to your dentist in Stuart, Florida. The best part about this app is that it is absolutely free!
Brush DJ has a very simple interface and is very kid friendly. They can choose the background color as well as the color of the flashing lights as the time ticks away. With music playing in the background, brushing time will fly by and your kids will look forward to brushing. If you have any other questions involving oral hygiene, you should always ask your dentist in Stuart, Florida.
The app is available in iTunes, and in the Google app store. By using this app, you and your family may find oral hygiene a bit easier, and more enjoyable. Just remember that you will still need to visit your dentist in Stuart, Florida even if you use this app every day!
