Two new video games, available as mobile apps, are designed to teach kids the importance of brushing their teeth.
Cavity Dragons and Cavity Dragons' Pro takes tooth brushing a step further by letting kids see if they are eating healthy.
Cavity Dragons is designed for 3- to 5-year-olds. In Cavity Dragons Pro, children, ages 6 to 8 have to move fast in order to defeat the cavity dragons without losing teeth by moving a fireman to put out small fires and food bits with toothpaste.
If the children do not move quickly enough to clear the fireballs and food bits of broccoli, popcorn, and candy being created by the Cavity Dragons, then a cavity appears. If too many cavities appear, then all the teeth fall out. When children defeat the Cavity Dragons, they are rewarded with points and coins and win the game.
Cavity Dragons Pro retails at $2.99 on iTunes.
