In September for National Oral Health Month Sunstar GUM launched two new additions to their Soft-Picks Advanced range. These are the only curved dental picks on the market. Now they come in small, regular and large so there’s a size for every smile – whether you have narrow or wide spaces between your teeth. Each pack of 30 Soft-Picks come with a handy travel case, GUM Soft-Picks Advanced are perfect for daily interdental cleaning at home or on the go.
Last year I reviewed the regular/medium sized Soft-Picks which you can read about here, I told you how much I loved them and preferred them over wooden toothpicks and flossing but wish that they had come in different sizes for the tight gaps in-between my teeth but now thankfully they do 🙂 and I will be telling you all about the three sizes that they come in.
Sunstar GUM Soft-Picks was only available in one size which was regular making it difficult to fit into the tight gaps in-between my teeth, now with the two new additions there’s a size to fit between any narrow or wide gaps because the gaps between our teeth are not all the same size. The three sizes are: small which is perfect for my tight tiny gaps, regular/medium and large. Each size comes in a pack of 30, each Soft-Pick is small yet easy to grip and get to those hard to reach places, they feel soft and rubbery and have a pointed tip for easy insertion between the gaps. Each pack comes with a carry case which is small and can fit all three different sized Soft-Picks and quite a lot of them inside so you can carry a variety of sizes with you wherever you go.
Each size is colour coordinated the small Soft-Picks are baby blue in colour and have thinner heads with tiny bristles, the regular/medium is light green in colour has a slightly thicker head and has medium sized bristles and lastly the large is dark green in colour with a bigger head and slightly longer bristles than the medium size.
Sunstar GUM Soft-Picks Advanced are for effective cleaning between teeth making it ideal for anyone who finds flossing a fuss. It is also ideal for cleaning orthodontics, bridges, implants and safe to use for those who have sensitive gums. Each Soft-Pick is curved to follow the natural shape of your jaw, the innovative shape makes it easy to reach between each tooth even those at the far back of the mouth. The soft, flexible rubber bristles slide comfortably between teeth to gently dislodge food and plague, whilst giving the gums a gentle micro-massage for optimal gum health. The Soft-Picks are wood, metal and latex free so you don’t have to worry about it breaking and getting stuck in-between your teeth or causing any damage to your teeth and gums, it’s safe and gentle for gums and teeth. It’s easy to use too, all you do is gently insert the correct size in-between your teeth and use gentle in-and-out motions. Do not force the bigger sizes into tight spaces.
Moe and I are fans of the Soft-Picks as they are so gently, effective and easy to use and the different sizes makes flossing a breeze each and every gap can now be flossed with no hassles. The small clear easy to use carry case safely and hygienically allows us to take the Soft-Picks with us wherever we go for quick and easy flossing between meals.
Sunstar GUM Soft-Picks are recommended by dental professionals around the world. They are available from Clicks, Dis-Chem, Pick n Pay, selected dentists and pharmacies at a recommended retail price of R89 for a pack of 30 which includes a handy travel case.
