I couldn't find angled floss picks in the store, only the flat stiff ones that are a pain to use for back teeth. Most of the other brands also have a cheap, sharp and useless dental pick in the back which doesn't remove food or plaque and hurts, by the way. Anyway,. I bought the DenTek version with the bristled pick from Walmart because of the comfortable angle design and the advertised flexibility of the wishbone vent in the middle. The pros are that it's PERFECT for back teeth, lives up to the claims it doesn't shred, and has amazing flexibility as promised. But the best part is the flexible, BRISTLED DENTAL BRUSH. I only started using it recently because I figured it would be a dud like the picks on other brands, but It's awesome! It's sturdy, but flexible. It works as good as any dental pick from my dentist's office or the drugstore. It feels so soothing on my gums, is easy to maneuver, does no damage to my gums and pushes food out expertly and effectively. You can use the brush at the widest or narrowest angle (flat or sideways) depending on the space between your teeth. But I've found using it flat, which is the widest angle, works really well on even my tightest spaces and also keeps the brush from bending which it has a tendency to do when using it sideways/narrow angle. The bristle brush is my favorite thing about using this pick and I'm surprised DenTek doesn't play up this feature even more. It's a great and affordable buy that will save on dental bills. My only con is the mint flavor, I can barely taste it but I don't care for added flavor/fragrances.
