We all know that we need to brush and floss our teeth daily, but do you know everything you need to know about dental care and hygiene? Believe it or not, there is a lot more to dental hygiene and oral care than most people realize. Luckily, there are several tools you can use to make sure that your teeth are getting the absolute best treatment. Here are our top seven picks for the best dental apps and resources.
1. Brush DJ
You are supposed to brush your teeth for a full two minutes, but that time can be difficult to judge. Many recommend that you listen to music, because a lot of songs are just around two minutes in length. Brush DJ has loads of great tunes that will get you into the two-minute habit. There are both songs to listen to, and videos to watch, and you will find a variety of awesome tunes (your favorite is most likely on the list). You can even vote for your favorite songs.
This is a great dental patient education app that helps everyone learn more about proper dental care and oral hygiene. It is recommended that Orasphere videos be used by dentists for their patients, so they can learn about procedures. It also reduces the risk of liability issues. Those who do use these videos say that the software can greatly decrease the amount of time it takes to explain procedures to patients.
3. Oral-B App
This app is the next best thing to a personal assistant when it comes to brushing your teeth and having amazing oral health. You will be brushing for a full two minutes, as recommended by dentists, and the app will work with the Oral-B Bluetooth-enabled electric toothbrushes. This may not seem like much, but you may be pleasantly surprised when you have great results at your next dental checkup, just because you used the Oral-B app.
If you are interested in having dental implants, talk to the professionals at Dental Implants Center. These days, dental surgery for implants is done with little to no pain, and even patients who have serious dental fear issues are finding that modern dentistry is virtually painless. Many other dental conditions are also treated here, and the staff work to ensure that you end up with a beautiful and healthy smile. They can help you get any information on teeth and oral care.
Everything you ever wanted to know about dentistry and your teeth, and then some, can be found on the American Dental Association (ADA) website. You will find loads of great articles that have the latest news about dentistry. Those interested in dental careers will find plenty of information to head them in the right direction, and there is even a section devoted to public dental programs, including Give Kids a Smile and Fluoride in Water.
6. DDS GP
Here is more presentation software that explains all types of dental procedures. This is helpful for dentists to have, because, as with Orasphere, they can better explain procedures to their patients. It was actually chosen as the best web product of 2011 by Gordon Christensen’s CR.
7. Dentistry IQ
This is a great resource for dental professionals. Find information for dentists, hygienists, assistants, office managers, and more at Dentistry IQ. You can also get information about new products, clinical practices, and much more. While this is a site that is mainly for professionals, it is also great for those who are interested in getting into the dental industry. You can learn about career opportunities, the most recent practices, and a whole lot more.
