Bearable Dentistry dental health professionals recommend that children and adults brush their teeth twice daily for 2 minutes each time (brushing after meals and snacks is ideal). Many parents help children get in 2 minutes of brushing by using a tried and true method – the hourglass timer.
Now, there’s an electronic alternative! The Disney Magic Timer app from Crest/Oral B is so cute and fun that brushing compliance is no longer an issue. It motivates children to brush for two minutes at a time as needed for healthy teeth and gums. Children are tech savvy and this app allows each child to select their favorite characters from Disney, Marvel and Star Wars. You just download the app it to any smart device (iPad, iPod, iPhone or android device) and get 2 minutes of brushing fun. Check it out at your app store and let the non-hassle of two-minute brushing fun begin. Happy parents. Happy kids. Happy dentist.
