Who wants to tote around a toothbrush to clean their teeth after each and every meal (as dentists suggest)? We suspect no one, which is why we love these mint-flavored plastic dental picks by DentaPicks so much. Whether you're trying to get that stubborn popcorn kernel out from between your two back teeth or you're trying to achieve a deep clean in lieu of traditional flossing, these plastic dental picks are a must-have to have on hand for everyday use and are great to throw in your backpack, keep in your car or have in your handbag — just in case.
A recent study showed that only four in 10 Americans flossed their teeth daily. Flossing removes plaque, which is a buildup of bacteria and saliva. Failure to do this can cause plaque to collect below the gum line and harden, ultimately causing periodontal disease. Because traditional flossing is not a favorite chore — Americans have admitted they would rather wash dishes, clean the toilet or sit in gridlocked traffic — the easier and more accessible this task can be, the better. Our plastic toothpicks are a super-simple way to remove plaque and improve the health of your teeth and gums. Thanks to their small, flexible construction, pointed ends and their scored surface, you'll remove all traces of your meal and nasty plaque quickly and easily.
