Used Toothpicks for Dental Hygiene

Years ago, my mother began using The Doctor’s BrushPicks to prevent gum disease. I found it rather odd because she was such an elegant and proper lady. I find it difficult to write about toothpicks and my mother in the same sentence. The words and image are an oxymoron.

However, the  toothpicks are a lovingly referred to  “Mimi Picks” by our family members and friends who are devoted to these little “plastic pastel plaque preventers”. 

Periodontist Sally Cram, DDS, a spokeswoman for the American Dental Association said, “There are a lot of studies that suggest that oral health, and gum disease in particular, are related to serious conditions like heart disease.” Our dental hygienist is pleased with how healthy our gums and teeth are because of our “Mimi Picks”.

I used to purchase the large 250 count containers at our local Walgreens Drug Store, However, they no longer sell them and stopped carry the small toothpick packages. The alternative was to find another pick, but I couldn’t. My “Yellow Brain” loyalty is to a superb product, so I researched purchasing my supply online.

I was pleased and amused when I found them on Amazon. My amusing surprise was not the good ratings or price, but the advertisement:

Notice anything strange…

Who would want to purchase Used toothpicks.
