Fun Apps to Improve Your Oral Hygiene

Sometimes, our health can take a backseat when it comes to our priorities. Whether that’s working out every day or keeping up on our very best oral hygiene, it can be left forgotten simply because it’s not at the forefront of our minds. Thankfully, in this world of ever-growing technology, there are a few ways to help us keep it a priority while also making it fun to do so. One of the top ways to do this is by utilizing apps! It’s not exactly thrilling to improve our oral hygiene but it can be if we choose the right apps.

Brush DJ

This app is probably one of our favorites. It’s great for all ages and helps ensure that you’re brushing your teeth for the proper amount of time. It’s all too easy to just run the brush through our mouths before running off. This app plays custom songs from your own library and even has a display to show you where to brush and when to change at various points in the song.

Brush Monster

If you’re into augmented reality or if your children are, they’ll get a kick out of this app. This allows people (it’s geared towards children more than anything) to interact with their phone/tablet screen to learn how to brush properly. Not just that but, it also covers the correct amount of toothpaste, where and how to brush, and cleaning up afterwards. Kids can earn stars each time they use the app to brush.

My Bright Smile

This app not only has a fun timer for kids, but it also has fun dental health oriented games as well. These five games help teach kids about other aspects of their life that can affect their teeth. For example, one of the games helps kids learn what foods and drinks can harm their teeth and which foods and beverages are a better choice.


This app is actually a game for children. The only way they can advance in the game or get new things is through brushing their teeth. For example, they’re not able to move on to the next character to fight the final boss unless they’ve earned the right to do so through brushing their teeth. It’s a fun an easy way to encourage kids to brush their teeth without a struggle.

Chomper Chums

This is another super fun app for kids. Not only are timers and other aspects involved like many of the apps you run into but, the kids can also earn things for their pets. Each time they use the app for their dental hygiene, they earn money in the game in order to feed their pet. On top of
