Houston, Texas

The Science behind This Idea

The idea of taking selfies while brushing was the subject of a study at Case Western Reserve University.

Can a Video Selfie Improve Your Tooth Brushing Skills?

Adults have been brushing for a long time, and incorrect brushing techniques are ingrained in our muscle memory. Correcting ones brushing techniques takes mindfulness and dedication.

Videoing yourself brushing your teeth can help, as the study showed people’s accuracy improved, as did the number of brush strokes.

The act of filming one’s self brushing can disrupt bad habits, making it easier to change behaviors and to create new muscle memories. There is the possibility this could lead to a video-based app for monitoring brushing techniques and which may help improve oral health.
