Encourage Good Oral Care Habits With Your Phone!
At 7 O’Clock Dental we’re big fans of preventive dental care. It’s easy to take care of your teeth and guarantee your oral health if you take the proper steps to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health conditions!
The entire team at our New Orleans dentist office is always looking for new ways to reinforce great oral health habits like brushing twice a day and flossing in the evenings. It can be hard to get into the proper routine, especially if you’ve had bad habits for a long time, but there are ways to help you and every member of your family!
Creating good oral health habits is important, especially for young people. Unfortunately they can be some of the hardest people to teach good brushing and flossing technique to! We’d like to suggest a great proven new way to help you and your children practice good habits: Brush DJ on your iPhone!
An iPhone App For Brushing My Teeth?
It’s a simple idea, really – Brush DJ is an app that you load onto your iPhone or iPad that does a number of things for your oral health. It’s also a great way to motivate your children into brushing their teeth!
- Brush DJ pulls two minutes of music at random from your music collection and plays it back while you brush. It also has a series of lights that let you know how far along in your brushing time you are – it’s a great way to make sure you reach all your teeth!
- Brush DJ also reminds you to floss before you brush your teeth!
- You can set a whole bunch of reminders in Brush DJ, such as times to brush, dentist appointments, toothbrush replacement reminders, midday mouthwash and tooth care routines, and other important dental health-related reminders!
- The info section of the app is loaded with great oral health care tips! You can view recommendations for people of different ages, see videos on proper brushing and flossing technique, and get a lot of great advice!
Brush DJ was selected as a top app by the British National Health Service and has been shown to provide great results!
Does An App Really Work?
A survey taken of people who got into the habit of using Brush DJ reported overwhelmingly that the experience was positive and beneficial! 70 percent said their teeth felt cleaner, 88 percent said they were motivated to keep their teeth healthy by brushing and flossing appropriately and over 90 percent said they’d recommend it to a friend!
Brush DJ is free, contains no ads or in-app purchases, and has proven benefits – check it out today for you and your children!
Ensuring Your Oral Health
Over 90 percent of adults will have a cavity or some form of tooth decay in their lifetimes. The unfortunate part about that statistic is just how preventable tooth decay is! By practicing good brushing habits, eating well, and getting regular professional dental care you can stop tooth decay and identify problems before they become serious!
At our New Orleans dentist office we would love to see you every six months. That’s the ideal frequency for patients who have healthy mouths. If you’re concerned that you might be suffering from tooth decay or gum disease we’ll probably want to see you more frequently, especially if we treat you for one of those conditions!
If you’re the kind of person who’s been avoiding the dentist due to fear, anxiety, or stress over dental care don’t worry – we’re professionals when it comes to treating dental anxiety! We just want to see you in our office so we can ensure your dental health is great for years to come!
Even if you haven’t been to the dentist in years we want to help! Call 7 O’Clock Dental today at (504) 266-0664 to schedule an appointment or get answers to any oral health questions you have! You can also request an appointment by filling out our online form. We look forward to seeing you soon!
