Has anyone tried piksters? They are tiny brushes on wire, with a handle, which you use instead of flossing. They scrub and clean between your teeth like mini-brushes and it is amazing! I was going to have my teeth professionally cleaned but after using piksters, the stains between my teeth were all gone in ONE use! You use it after you brush your teeth normally with toothpaste, but before you rinse out the toothpaste.
I’m not an agent for piksters, but I am just really amazed by this product. It is way better than flossing. They come in different sizes but I recommend starting with the smallest one. They are pretty expensive at $9 per 10 pack, but each can last about 2 weeks with proper care.

I’ve used piksters! They are really good for people with braces, and are a great alternative to flossing.

Piksters are fantastic, and highly recommended for those with braces, and large gaps where floss just seems to waft in the breeze. They are not for everyone tho, as even the teensiets pikster cannot be forced into a gap that isnt there. Floss is still the only choice for a lot of us with tightly packed teeth.
They should be used before you brush, just a personal choice really, as you can dislodge quite a lot of plaque and food, and if you do that after you brush you can feel a but yuck having it in your mouth still.
SarahnhBD, most dental surgeries are now stocking piksters (or other brand names alternatives), but also chemists too so they’re relatively easy to come by now. Just bear in mind that tho it seems expensive for a pack, each brush should last you at least a week. They must be used gently, if you need to force it into a gap, then you need a different size. Ask your dentist or orthodontist to test some on you and they should be able to let you know which size fits best, you may end up with a few sizes all up.

I have tried both Piksters and the Swedish Tepe interdental brushes. I prefer Piksters as they are Australian, work just as well and are much cheaper! Of course I get my Piksters from my favourite Australian online dental supplier at http://advancedental.com.au

Piksters are great little brushes for larger gaps! I use it in combination with flossing so one of them lasts me a few months.
I tried the sampler pack, which comes in 3 different sizes so I can choose a size before buying the 10 pack. I bought them in Coles.

I LOVE Piksters! I had some periodontal disease and my dentist recommended these, and they have been brilliant (my teeth are pretty tightly packed). I get mine at Priceline; usually as cheap as Coles plus I get my points.
