Teaching Children to Brush - Start Healthy Habits Early

January 27, 2014 | Posted in Current News | Be the first one to comment

In a cooperative effort between the Academy of General Dentistry and the Ad Council, a FREE Game App called "Toothsavers" has been developed for children ages 3-6

This game encourages children to save fairy-tale characters from an evil sorceress who has cast a wicked tooth-rotting spell across the kingdom. It is designed to motivate children to take care of their own teeth by brushing twice per day, for at least 2 minutes each time. 

This game has three key features:
(1) It is based on "brushing" by swiping a finger across the screen. The game asks children to be heroes as they save 10 fairy-tale characters from the cavity spell.
(2) There is a 2-player mode that allows a child to "brush" the teeth of a friend or parent who holds the mobile device up to his/her mouth.
(3) The app can be used as a tooth-brushing companion. It can be set to provide morning and nightime reminders, and can keep track of a child's brushing patterns. 

Why not download the "Toothsavers" game today? Visit the App Store or Google Play today!
