Yup, it is official… there is an app for everything now!
This app is pretty cool and very simple. It is designed to help your child adopt not only the habit of brushing their teeth, but also the recommended routine of 2 minutes of brushing.
The app is called the “Toothsavers Brushing Game” and it was developed for the Kids' Healthy Mouths campaign. Its goal is to help parents to get their kids to brush twice a day for the recommended 2 minutes. With fun graphics, voiceovers and an ongoing system of rewards, this app can be a fun and effective way to get your kids to brush their teeth and to actually enjoy doing so!
Here are some of the cool features:

“Well, OK Doc, I guess we just have to pull ‘em all out and go with false teeth then… “
These words came out of the mouth of a young man in his early 20’s. This case really shook my world as a dentist.
After time spent living, working and practicing as a dentist in the somewhat rural area of West Texas, I was used to having to replace bad teeth with bridges or full-sets of false teeth in the older population set. But this was a young man that should be in the absolute prime of his life.
Unfortunately, there wasn’t much that traditional dentistry could offer him but to pull all of his teeth and have him spend the rest of his life with the discomfort and setbacks of false teeth.
