We have been using these "Plackers" Micro Mint Dental Flossers for several months now. I like that these are portable enough to carry in your purse or shirt pocket (for men).

This package contains 90 dental picks and they also have an end that you can bend one side and it becomes a toothpick too. So that means, no more using a wooden toothpick from a restaurant, which really isn't advised since wood splinters can get stuck in your gums. I never heard of such a thing until it happened to my Aunt and she had to have a root canal because she could never see the splinter that caused an infection. She had thought the whole time it was a popcorn kernel or something that she couldn't floss out, but it was from the wooden toothpick.

Many people like the little plastic box of dental floss that has yards of floss, but when you think about all the floss you waste by wrapping it around your fingers, these are really a better value.

There are several brands of dental picks out there, but I felt these were the best return for the money spent.

Now, the "mint" flavor is barely there and they claim to freshen your breath. They state it's a flavor you can really taste, but I really didn't. Most dental flosses claim this, but it's really only relating to flossing the food from between your teeth and that is what causes bad breath. I normally use to buy cinammon flosses because you could taste it, but right now, these only come in this mint flavor.

If you haven't tried this form of dental floss, I highly recommend them and their ease of use.
