The incorporation of the internet in smartphones along with the wide use of them provides the opportunity to carry out innovative health interventions with mHealth (mobile health) to improve health and quality of life worldwide. The use of new technologies is present in the daily lives of children, which gives the opportunity to promote oral health in a didactic way to digital natives. The aim of this literature review is to describe the results of recent evidence of the use of mobile applications or Apps to improve oral hygiene in children. Technology with smartphones has grown at an accelerated pace along with the development of Apps, however, research has not kept pace.

In this way, effective long-term changes can be generated regarding the oral health habits of children and adults.
