5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Flossing! Dec 9 2007
By SacTownGirl - Published on Amazon.com

I never floss. I have used these exclusively for the last year or so and my dental hygienist is amazed that I don't floss. Says she would swear that I floss at least twice daily and my gums are in great shape!

BTW, this review applies to the 'original' brush picks--not the 'new and improved' picks that have more and tapered bristles. The new picks are too soft and I find the bristles end up laying flat rather quickly. The original picks have 3 little bristles on each side. These seem to hold up better. I love them!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as easy to use or as comfortable as Butler Soft Picks Dec 3 2010
By J. Yu - Published on Amazon.com

I recently started using Bulter Soft Picks 40 pieces (Pack of 6), which I picked up at the drug store. I like how they are soft, gentle, and slip easily between my teeth. I also like that they are small and come with a little case that takes up very little room in my cosmetic pouch. However, after buying my second pack and throwing away the second plastic case, I got online to see if I could purchase the picks in larger quantities, without the extra cases, which are a waste of plastic. I couldn't find any sold just as refills, and Amazon doesn't offer Prime shipping on the soft picks, so I decided to try these brushpicks instead.

Given the numerous glowing reviews, I went in for the case. A pick is a pick is a pick, right? Not at all. The brushpick is twice as long as the soft pick, so it's harder to get it in the back of my mouth. The brushpick is also sharp on both ends, and as I try to work the bristles between my molars, I end up poking my gums. Ouch! The soft pick has tiny, soft bristles all the way around, so you just slide it in and out. The brushpick only has two rows of not-as-soft bristles. You have to kind of twist the brushpick while it's between your teeth, which is awkward and slightly uncomfortable. I will say both picks bend and break quickly; I have to use at least two picks each time.

Maybe if I hadn't gotten used to using the soft picks, I wouldn't dislike these so much.

I certainly learned my lesson about buying a case of something I've never tried before!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why they aren't available everywhere I don't know. Feb. 3 2009

These are the best picks and brushes for cleaning teeth without a toothbrush. I take them everywhere. Strangely, many dentists know nothing about them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Toothpick in the World Aug. 23 2009
By Alexander Irving - Published on Amazon.com

Brushpicks ... an absolutely 'brilliant' toothpick solution.

Toothpicks ... mundane ... boring ... invisible ... at every restaurant cash register. They come in all sizes and shapes in the drugstore. You never think about them. But ... when you need one, you REALLY want one.

Why most don't work: Too fat to get between your teeth. Inflexible (you have to spend 5 minutes chomping and moistening the end in your mouth). They have a brush on the end that's so big you could wash baby bottles with it. The list of poor design ideas goes on.

The age-old drugstore solution for me in the past has been the minty, balsa-like, wooden 'Stimudents' as once moistened (takes a while of moistening), could be jammed (molded) between the teeth and were soft enough to do the job.

Then I found Brushpicks. The brush is the perfect size and design. The bristles are thin and the perfect composition. Easy to use, cleans completely in one stroke. So happy I bought a case pack of 12 as I never wanted to run out. One of those GREAT simple solutions to one of life's age-old problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have Been Using The Doctor's Brushpicks for Years Now Feb. 1 2009
By Pat - Published on Amazon.com

I hate to floss, but I love to pick my teeth. I used to use wooden toothpicks, but they had their limitations. Some years ago I switched to The Doctor's Brushpicks. My twice yearly dental checkups are great. My gums are tight and healthy, and I haven't had a cavity in years. I rarely endorse a product, but this one deserves every accolade it gets. I keep Brushpicks in my purse and on my kitchen shelf. Every time I eat anything at all, I take one out and use it to massage my gums and remove all the food between my teeth. Unlike flossing, which can be messy and requires a certain amount of privacy, using a brushpick is something you can do while you're working or driving. Once when we were traveling through Europe, we ran out of brushpicks and nearly went crazy. Boots, the local chain of drugstores, didn't carry them, so we walked all over London and finally found some brushpicks in a small pharmacy. I've never seen them on the Continent, so now we make sure to take plenty along when we travel. Pat

Update January 5, 2013: Still using Doctor's Brushpicks several times each day! Still love them!!
