7 Useful Dental Apps and Resources

7 Useful Dental Apps and Resources

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.

    2. Orasphere

    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.

                Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

                Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

                Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

                Does technology have all the answers?

                This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

                Creating technological solutions transparently

                This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

                Technology as the connecting tool

                Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

                “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
