Rated 1 out of 5 by Jim McLaughlin 2296 from Very effective, easy to use. I have been using these soft-picks for well over a year now and I highly recommend them. I use them at least twice a day at home and carry them in my cars for when I eat out. I brush first, rinse with Listerine and then use the soft-picks. When I am finished, my teeth are clean and I always get compliments from the dental technicians when I go for cleaning every 8 months. There are some complaints here that they bend too easily. Use them with care and you can get 2 usages with them. You shouldn't expect more than that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Retired hygienist 9341 from GUM Soft-Picks I'm a retired hygienist of 35 years! I wish these had been available when I was practicing. I would have recommended them to my patients especially my senior patients with arthritis, because they had a difficult time flossing. These work great to keep the bacteria "stirred up" in between your teeth . . . thus, no gum disease! Use them at least once a day. So comfortable and easy to use. They should 'squeek' when the interproximal space is clean! My 94 year old mom uses them and she gets raves when she has her teeth cleaned!! Keep them in your car/purse, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maryland Shopper from Very good supplement to floss These are flexible enough not to cause damage, but firm enough to clean. In very tight spaces betwen teeth they may not go through, but waxed floss can work in these cases. At its most basic an advanced toothpick. At its more advanced use a well-designed and well-made extra tool for clean teeth. Don't fret if you bend a few while you get used to using them. I can not give an expert dental opinion but I personally use them as an adjunct to floss (not all the time together and sometimes apart from each other ) and feel good using them. Despite some negative publcity about flossing (and I would assume also these type of picks) ,my experienced dentist and dental hygienst strongly advise thorough cleaning with such tools along with careful and regular tooth brushing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clean teeth 7982 from My best dentist appointment ever I don't usually write reviews on anything but my experience has been so great that I just can't help it. I have tried many products to replace the dental floss (waterpik, sonicare air floss) and a lot of money too. Even using those products I ended up having a deep cleaning. Due to the nature of the dental procedure, I was getting the maintenance cleaning every 4 months. I was very frustrated since nothing seem to work. Some of those cleanings were very painful. I decided to stick to one product, the soft picks, which I have been using for the last 5 months every day. My last maintenance cleaning last month was the best I ever had in my life. I was ecstatic! Non of my cleanings have been completed in less than 15 minutes ever. Everything because of the soft picks. Best product ever!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by She Devil from Keep up the good work I have been buying the soft picks since my dental hygienist recommended them to use along with dental floss. I had been buying them at my local Costco, but the last two times I went there, I couldn't find them. I don't know if they discontinued carrying them, or just moved them to an area that I haven't found. That's when I checked on line. Glad I did since I also found the ones for bigger gaps between my teeth. I plan on trying some of your other products as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IzzysMom 4412 from Finally Clean! I had a cavity drilled out between two molars. There was enough integrity to keep the tooth as is and just fill it. However, for almost a year I struggled with food stuck in the hole created by drilling out the cavity. Mom saw my frustration and handed me one of these soft picks and I was amazed! CLEAN! I went online and immediately bought two 120-count packages :) These picks are SOFT for cleaning in between teeth and don't hurt my gums.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbara Gorzinski 885 from A great solution for my bridgework I was having lots of problems with getting floss under my bridge and wasn't satisfied with the use of a water pik. My dentist gave me a sample of Soft-Picks to try and they were just the right tool for me. They were easy to work around my bridge and did a great job of cleaning and I can carry them around easily. I fully recommend this product, especially for middle-aged folks like me with bridgework.
