I have always tried to floss my teeth the way I should. But I have always had difficulty using dental floss. It is hard for me to get the string between some of my teeth, particularly the back ones which are closer together. Then I discovered Dentek Silk Floss Picks. I absolutely love these things! It makes flossing so incredibly easy! Instead of using the regular string floss where you have to hold onto both ends of the string, these have a string inserted in a small pick with a handle. All you have to do is hold on to the handle and push the floss between your teeth. You can do it with one hand! The floss slides between your teeth so smoothly and the floss does not shred like a lot of floss does. Easily remove foods that are stuck between your teeth. And they are very inexpensive. I have found that there is very little bleeding when I use these floss picks. And there is also a built in toothpick which means less waste. I really think this is a wonderful product and highly recommend it for people with teeth that are close together. Or to anyone who just wants to simplify their flossing routine!

Nobody really *likes *flossing, do they?  It's time-consuming and tedious, and not to mention a bit disgusting.  I personally don't make a habit of putting my fingers in my mouth and haven't since i was a toddler.  But we all know we have to do it to keep our teeth and gums in optimal health.  And we'll never hear the end of it from our dental professionals if we don't!  I used to get so frustrated with string floss.  The way it would dig into your fingers as you flossed, it was like using piano wire and it was tough to control.  Finally i started using flossing picks and it makes it a LOT easier to keep up with my oral hygiene routine.  I only bought the Dentek flossers because they didn't have my usual brand the last time i was out.  I figured with the "angled head" that was meant to reach back teeth and the fluoride coating it would be a good buy anyway.  In fact, i find them to be more difficult to use because of the different angle and the floss itself doesn't seem to be as efficient at removing plaque as regular floss.  Whether the fluoride coating helps or not, i don't know, i'm not a dentist!

Not a big fan of the DenTek Silk Floss Picks!

By 

from Stoughton, Wi

Comments about DenTek Silk Floss Picks:

I have been using floss sticks for over five years and as a general rule, I have been very satisfied with most of the brands I have used. This was not the case with the DenTek brand. I bought them because they were the cheapest dental sticks the store was selling and I mistakenly assumed all brands were relatively equal in quality. The dental floss on the DenTek was thin and shredded or broke almost immediately after only flossing one or two teeth! Most brands of dental floss sticks glide easily through my teeth and make flossing a pleasurable experience. Using this dental floss left me frustrated and annoyed! I actually got the floss stuck in my teeth on several occasions and using this product could even be described as painful! I ended up throwing the whole pack away which left me wishing I would have just stuck with a more expensive dental floss stick!

Best floss picks I ever used

By 

from Anaheim, CA

Comments about DenTek Silk Floss Picks:

I have tried different kind of floss and floss picks but DenTek Comfort Clean Silky floss is the only floss that I liked and now I use them regularly. The floss picks are really thin and silky which makes it easy to glide between my teeth without making any effort. Generally after eating meat, pieces of meat get stuck in between my teeth, which is very irritating and unhygienic. I try to take them out by brushing but they won’t come out it is when this floss picks comes to my rescue.
While traveling I do not have to carry my tongue cleaner with me as the tongue scraper option is an added feature in this floss picks which I like very much.
The flosses that I buy have a fresh mint flavor on it and are coated with fluoride. After flossing with this picks it leaves a little minty and sweet taste inside the mouth which I like very much. My husband did not like to floss before, but now he also likes the floss and is using them regularly.

Fantastic and convenient

Comments about DenTek Silk Floss Picks:

I love the ease and convenience of these floss picks. I've tucked them in my purse when I worked in an office and was paranoid about having food stuck in my teeth after lunch, and we've used them to teach our kids the importance of flossing. And with the way they're designed, there's not a huge learning curve for the kids. They can use them on their own, and they find it fun! Overall, they're much handier than winding a length of floss around your fingers and then sticking your hands in your mouth to try to get between your teeth. I recommend these for regular flossing when you brush your teeth and on-the-go care when you're away from home. They're easy on the teeth and not hard to handle. On rare occasions, the floss has broken, but I don't consider that a major complaint. They're affordable, and I don't see any reason to not have these in our house as part of our regular dental hygiene routines.

Cheap and easy, just the way I like it.

By

Comments about DenTek Silk Floss Picks:

I was one of those people who the dentist always called out for not flossing. To me it was a pain in the butt and took too long. One day though, I came across these. The package of these was actually cheaper than a pack of floss so I picked them up. I was instantly hooked. Much easier to use and you don't drool all over the place. Just make sure you move it side to side to wrap around your teeth as much as possible. Much like floss they do occasionally break, but there are more in the package. I have found these so effective that I keep them in my desk at work too. Another plus, my kids find it easy to use these too so they floss all the time now too. cheap, easy and the kids can use them too, whats not to like about these? Now when I go to my dentist, she tells me that she is happy I finally started to listen and floss my teeth. But then of course she says I still could do a better job. But hey it's a start.

DenTek Silk Floss Picks makes flossing easy!

By 

from Hanover, PA

Comments about DenTek Silk Floss Picks:

DenTek Silk Floss Picks make flossing much easier for people with little room between teeth. With normal flossing, there tends to be a lot of bleeding. With these floss picks, there's very little bleeding. Also, with normal floss, I find that its hard sometimes to get the floss back out from between my teeth. The floss in floss picks are held taught within the pick, so its very easy to just pull it back out. Because they are so easy to use I tend to floss my teeth more often. Although other reviews have stated that these aren't great for tight teeth, I personally had the opposite experience where they were great for tight teeth. Therefore I would recommend anyone try them for themselves as teeth are all different.

DenTek Flossers Fantastic

By 

from Oregon, IL

Comments about DenTek Silk Floss Picks:

We have been having a real problem with flossing in our house...no one does it! So I decided I would have to make flossing more exciting or get used to paying higher dentist bills. So I found the DenTek Flossers, which are basically a small piece of floss attached to a piece of plastic that you can hold with one hand and floss your teeth. The other end has a point which I guess can be used for picking your teeth!

Anyways, these are a big hit in our house. I keep the bag in the medicine cabinet where everyone can just grab what they need after they brush. I have noticed that my husband and I are flossing a lot more - it is so easy and quick with the flossers. My four year old can use these by himself as well, which I really like, because otherwise I have to floss his teeth and listen to him complain about it the entire time.

The only downside is I am not sure if you are supposed to use just one with each flossing session or more than one? Other than that, I am thouroughly pleased with this product.

love it

By 

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about DenTek Silk Floss Picks:

I totally love this product.

It actually works and does what it say.

The Dentek Silk Floss Picks say that they are made for tight teeth.   The package says Flossing Made Easy!, Slides Easily" , and Shred Resistant.

And i agree to it.

The Dentek Silk Floss Picks are disposable and ready to go.  They have a toothpick at its end.

I have sensitive teeth and tight ones.And i was new to flossing.I never flossed before.

I tried the threads but couldn do it properly.

Then i tried this product and it was so easy.Its easy to reach at the back.

And since it has a toothpick too, it makes your work.Infact one of my cousin , uses it in place of a toothpick not as a floss.

It totally works for me , reaches hard to reach places and between the theeths.

The only thing i sometimes feel guilty about is that they are made of plastic and i am generating so much more of plastic waste.

wish it could be some other material, may be wood.

Not that great for tight teeth.

By 

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about DenTek Silk Floss Picks:

My teeth are very close together so sometimes I have trouble with floss getting stuck in my teeth. The Dentek Silk Floss Picks say that they are made for tight teeth.   The package says "Flossing Made Easy!" , "Slides Easily" , and "Shred Resistant" so I picked up a pack.  I was very disappointed.  

The upside to the Dentek Silk Floss Picks is that they are disposable and ready to go.  

The downside is that the pick got stuck in my teeth which was the big selling point for me.and it started to shred halfway through.  I also would have liked for the pick to have a mint and/or cinnamon flavor to it.  Maybe I am just used to that with other products but I did notice right away it did not have a flavor to it. 

Needless to say the Dentek Silk Floss Picks aren't for me but my husband and mom both love them.  They both like that it is a tooth pick and floss all in one.  Neither of them have teeth that close together though.  I would recommend the Dentek Silk Floss Picks to someone with teeth that aren't so close together.
