    Those brush pics are addictive. I use dental floss before I go to bed,
    but I use the floss brushes during the day.

    I brush and floss after each meal, I can't tolerate food stuck between
    my teeth. I also finish with a mouth wash. Years ago I was addicted
    to those flat wooden toothpics, very glad I broke that habit, pics
    wear away the enamel between teeth and also cause gums to retract
    causing periodontal disease. If one is having problems with floss
    shredding try different brands, some are better than others. And
    don't get too aggresive with floss. I also much prefer the electronic
    (sonic) tooth brushes.

    The skinny kind hurts, but the thicker is okay.

    Addictive is right. Once you find out how easy it is to get food out
    from between your teeth throughout the day, you won't want to go back.

    I have too many choices of completely different things when I google
    image the term "floss brush", so I still can't picture what you're
    talking about. Is it this?

    That is one of them, it has little rubber bristles, the others have
    plastic bristles.

    There already is an electric flosser. It's called a "Waterpik" and it
    relieves you from having to do that nasty business with string and
    having to stuff your hands in your mouth. It's essentially a pressure
    washer for between the teeth and it works great. Why are you messing
    around with string? :-)

    I have a Waterpik it's great for the gums and gets into any "pockets",
    if you are plagued with those as I am.

    Yeah, that's one version. They come in many sizes so if you have close
    teeth or teeth with a little space between them, you can find what works
    for you. They don't work for my new dental work, though. I had 4
    crowns put in on my top four front teeth and they're fused.

    But... this is the age of twitter + FB. (You know how I feel

    Our "oral irrigator" is hooked up to the shower, which is easy and
    convenient for us.

    I floss in the shower each morning. Real floss. By flossing with my mouth
    under the jet of water, the water pressure helps get out what the floss
    loosens. It works well and no nifty gadgets to do the job.

    That's seems spiffy. I can't say if our line pressure is high enough for
    my teeth but for $20, it don't hurt to try. Thanks!
