Are you among the parents who want wearing braces to be fun for their kids? Well, nowadays it seems like there’s an app for just about everything, and that includes braces apps. Check out these apps recommended by Dr. Andy in Parma, OH (just outside of Cleveland). Your child will thank you for it.


BracesHelp is an informative app for patients wearing braces. The app includes resources on how to care for braces, what to do for a range of specific problems, and even how to make small adjustments.

  • Free and available on iOS on iTunes.
  • Requires iOS 7.0 or later
  • Compatible with iPhone and iPad
  • Optimized for iPhone 5

Braces Accelerator

Braces Accelerator is an app that designed to remind your child to wear their orthodontic elastics (rubber bands). Forgetting to wear elastics is the number one reason patients are in braces longer than they should. Not only does this app keep track how the patient is doing over time, but can potentially help your child get their braces off faster.

  • Available on iOS on ITunes and Android on Google Play for $0.99
  • Requires iOS 3.2 or later
  • Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

RubberBand Reminder

RubberBand Reminder is another app designed to get your child out of braces faster by sending braces care alerts. One of the coolest features of this app is a setting called “Challenge” that asks your child throughout the day whether or not they’re wearing their rubber bands. The kids respond with either a yes or know and then the app tracks progress and displays a graph with a letter grade.

  • Available on iOS on iTunes and Android on Google Play for $1.99
  • Requires iOS 3.2 or later
  • Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
