    Curious to see how many use the 'flossers' (the picks with the floss attached) or regular dental floss.

    I personally use the picks because they're much more convenient than regular floss.

    So, which do you use?

    I floss every night with the Oral B picks. I also use a waterpik every night.

    I use a rusty nail like a real man.

    Seriously though I use Johnson and Johnson Mint Waxed Floss. I can't stand those picks. It's difficult to get my rear molars. The little strand won't last between all my teeth. Plus it seems like an awful waste of plastic.

    I use regular Glide floss, I find it's the smoothest of the brands I've tried. I've never tried a pick, but it doesn't sound like I'd want to bother with it.

    Flossers. Regular floss is too much of a hassle.

    You have got to be kidding, it's obvious.

    The brand of choice for me is Apple iFloss.

    The silver color is attractive & the only drawback is the aluminum aftertaste.

    My pearlies have never been better :)

    I can't get to my molars without the picks. I think it's because I have a huge hand.

    iFloss is rumored to receive an upgrade to extend it's longevity.

    I stalk Windows users and floss with their hair that they lose due to stress on a daily basis. I can't go into more detail for legal reasons. Sorry.

    On the serious side, I have never tried a pick. Are there any known benefits over string floss?

    I doubt it. I'm pretty sure it's just convenience in either.

    I use picks. I used to hate using regular floss before.

    Not abrasive enough for me.

    Did anyone ever use the water picks? If you did, how did they work?
