My husband and I started using DenTek Comfort Clean Floss Picks as a way to encourage increased flossing for both of us. Neither of us have ever been great at flossing - I personally hate it - so we got these thinking it would make us want to do it more often. Well, it has worked for him, he is now flossing every day. For me, I don't know. I find these just to be basically like glorified floss. They are okay, but nothing special really. The floss picks are really just a small piece of dental floss stretched between a small whishbone-shaped piece of plastic, designed to make flossing easier, maybe more fun, and probably less of a hassle. I do think it makes flossing more fun. The little picks are cool and cute and will fit easily in your purse or pocket without having to lug out that big, awkward strand of regular floss. However, I still hate to floss. I have TMJ and it just hurts to floss and hold my mouth open wide forever, and these don't do a great job of making the process easier. It is still difficult with these to reach my back teeth, and I just don't love it. So, for someone who likes flossing, these might be for you, but if you are like me and hate flossing anyway, these might not be your cup of tea, either. But, since my husband loves them, I will continue to purchase these, because he claims they are effective, and he is the one actually using them daily.
