Plastic Brush Picks for Teeth
Useful Plastic Tooth Picks
Your dentist will praise you when you show up in his chair after six months of applying these very easy to use modern tooth picks to your daily regimen. Yes, the toothpick has been redesigned, for all your oral needs.
Anyone would hesitated talking about a tooth pick, but I am now telling any reader who visits that this remake is very useful.
A few years ago it was necessary to visit the periodontics specialist to repair a deep gum pocket. In the following months I got an extra cleaning from his office and received many different brushes for eliminating plaque. I also bought a few brushes too. Finally was satisfied with a box of The Doctor's BrushPicks at a cost of about one cent each pick.
This tooth pick is made for one use only. Its slim design works where others did not because of very closely spaced teeth. Much easier to use than floss and with the gentle brush it does a good job on massaging the gums between every tooth. The brush even has a bendable tip for getting to the areas inside next to the tongue where the periodontist urged not to forget.
The pointed end has ridges for ridding the teeth of soft plaque by rubbing it against your teeth at the gum line. The point is thin and can be used for any over lapping areas of your teeth.
Sometimes the brush breaks off so be careful not to swallow if that should happen.
Oral Tool for Better Gums
Even with shipping this 250 box is about the same price as the local drug store. I have not seen them everywhere but Amazon is a convenient shopping option for them.
The back of the 250 count box I can purchase at my local drug store. Of course, one would need this handy implement for life so an order of a thousand or more would be a good idea.

Please Use Plastic Responsibly
If you tend to use this pick while driving in rush hour traffic please dispose of in a car trash container.
A/O 12/28/14 Email has been sent to Prestige Brands Holdings asking about the polypropylene used for these plastic tooth picks. There are biodegradable PPs manufactured. Are these picks made with such a plastic? I hope to find out.
Some days later I did get a reply from the maker. The email did not say they are made from a biodegradable plastic.
"The brushpicks are made out of Pyalene. Pyalene is a plastic resin – Polyoxymethylene Acetal Copolymer. Pyalene is in compliance with FDA Regulations and there is no antibacterial coating on the product".
I went to wikipedia with this information and I can not find any info for an everyday unscientific discussion. I am assuming it does not breakdown in our lifetime. I dumped a few picks in my compost bin for some backyard science.
