Life can get a little hectic sometimes. With endless lists to be ticked off and a million errands to run, not to mention squeezing in your social life, it can be hard to find the time to fit in dentist appointments beyond those six-monthly check-ups. Well, say cheese to a brand new app, Pearlii, that’s here to help you out when you can’t quite squeeze in a half-hour appointment. 

The new AI technology was developed by former public health academic, Dr Kyle Turner, and while it definitely isn’t here to replace the dentist, it will give you solid advice on anything that’s worrying you. If something does need to be checked by a dentist in person, the app will flag it, giving you the option to book an appointment with any of the 3,000 dentists linked to the app. Basically, Pearlii makes it quicker, easier and cheaper to spot any potential issues and sort them out early, before they become a serious (and expensive) problem.

So how do they check out your teeth you ask? Well, simply pop in the bathroom, clean your teeth and take five pics of those toothy pegs (with the flash on). The app will give you all the info and even a demo to make sure you know how to get all the right angles. Sounds pretty easy to us.

It only takes five minutes, and best of all, it’s free. What have you got to lose? Find out more about Pearlii and download the app here.
