Personally, I hate using regular dental floss, largely because I need to fit several fingers as well as the dental floss pretty far into my mouth in order to reach my back teeth, and that is quite uncomfortable. But I love using these floss picks. They are short pieces of floss that are attached to a handle, and they allow one to reach the back of the mouth without needing the hand very far into the mouth. They are disposable, so they are used once and then thrown away. These Oral B floss picks have a comfortable handle that is easy to hold and manipulate as it moves around the mouth. The floss is long enough to fit between molars in the back, and it does as good of a job of cleaning them out as regular floss does. These particular ones are even better than other brands that I have tried. The angle of the floss and handle means that one can reach straight into the mouth to reach the back teeth instead of at an angle. Other brands that have the floss angled require reaching from one side of the mouth across to the other to get the floss to fit into the teeth. All around, these are my favorite way to floss.
