5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Flossing! Dec 9 2007
By SacTownGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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
Verified Purchase
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 Drs. B Picks compared to GUMsoft picks vs.DenTek Slim Brush Nov. 1 2011
By N. Murray - Published on Amazon.com
In case anyone would like to know, today I compared the Doctors Brush Pick (250 pkg)the GUM Soft Picks, DenTek Slim Brush for Tight Teeth and CVS' Interdental brush and toothpick . I bought all 4 and tried them all today after going for my 6 month dental cleaning yesterday. I had no cavaties but my gums could be better. I hate flossing and asked if there was an alternative. I was told about the GUM Soft Picks. I looked them up here at Amazon and the GUM website and seeing that CVS was supposed to carry them, took a trip there and bought 4 differnt kinds/brands to see how they would fare, figuring I'd use them all up eventually. Here is my experience.

Having tight teeth,,,the Doctors Brush Picks and DenTek Slim Brush worked best for me and got between the most teeth. Of course in all 4, there were a few teeth that even the Doctors and DenTek couldn't get between. The GUM and CVS had the largest diameter and therefore got between the least amount of teeth for cleaning. The GUM Brush Picks were quick to crumple when they couldn't slide between the teeth, so that was annoying. At CVS, the Doctors bush picks were the best value at 250 for $3.89 and were on par with DenTek Slim Brush (32 for $5.99) with getting in between the most teeth. The Doctors and Dentek are different "animals in that the Drs. is the "brush" with plastic bristles on one end and a plastic tooth pick on the other. The DenTek has a green, small, solid plastic cylinder you hold at one end and a super slim metal filament with tiny brush like filaments going 360 degrees around the metal filament. The Doctors pick isn't bendable on the pick end. The DenTek's metal filament can be bent at 90 degrees for back teeth. Both worked great and I think, for me both are way more comfortable than using Glide dental floss and I can tell after I used the 4 I tried, that I'll get much more "cleaning" out of these picks than any floss!! The CVS' brand Interdental Brush & Toothpick (120 picks for $1.99 in the travel section, aqua in color) as they were a better value than the CVS brand competition to the other name brand picks where I found the other 3 items, go figure. I tried them CVS' out, and found them about the same diameter as the GUM Soft Picks. So the 2 that I won't buy again (because they are just to large to fit between more of my teeth teeth) would be the CVS and GUM picks. Those will go to my son who has space between his teeth and will work just fine in his case. The Doctors Brush Picks are the best VALUE but I do wish the end with the tiny plastic filaments would bend like the DenTek. If they did, they'd be absolutely perfect for my tight teeth. I'm thinking I will use the Doctors most of the time and based on construction of the DenTek (being bendable where you need it), I will try and extend them for more than one use, by swishing them in mouthwash to get them as sterile as possible after rinsing them clean. I know I probably shouldn't do that, but unless I find the DenTek in a larger/more economical quantity amount, the Doctors brand wins on economy and the DenTek wins when it comes to being able to reach and clean between the back molars as well as most of my other teeth. I was thinking of possibly snapping off the Doctors brand tooth pick end (the no bristle portion) and seeing if I can make them a little shorter to reach between my back molars from the tongue angle and hopefully that will work. I don't know yet. So that is my experience and thought if you were considering this type of product that seeing the differences between each, might help.
