Your dental picks are very durable and tough. They will probably last a lifetime, but they aren't designed to work well as a pick. They are too short, so the taper does not allow the pick to slide between the teeth very far. A longer, thinner pick will allow you to remove food from the outside of the tooth first, then push food between the teeth through to the other side. That has the effect of cleaning both sides of the teeth. It's more difficult to use a pick on the inside, between the teeth so a thinner, longer pick makes it possible to clean both sides by pushing the pick in from the outside only. Also, a more pliable plastic would make it easier to reach teeth further back in the mouth. It would also break sooner but then you get to sell more picks, right? I don't normally review things but I'm writing this in hopes that you might get it right. I have 4 picks left of a version I used to buy several years ago (don't know the name or manufacturer) and I've been trying for years to find a replacement.
