I am not a consistant flosser, but since I purchased the Hummingbird I have been flossing more often. I use both the floss and the picks. The picks work well on the back teeth, especially.
I have a hard time finding fault with a product that encourages me to floss. While the flossing attachments still have some room for improvement, I am optimistic that Oral B will solve that problem and we will be able to buy better refills in the future. In the meantime, I'd say the Hummingbird will make my next trip to the dentist a little easier.

My teeth are very tight and flossing has never been a joy of any kind, so I often don't do it! Then I got this little buzzer thingy and things have changed. Even though I still have trouble getting the floss between my teeth, once it is in there, I can feel it is doing a superb job of getting the tiny bits and goo off my teeth in areas regular flossing just doesn't go, and it does it in a third of the time regular flossing takes. I thought having a battery powered tooth pick was the height of arrogance, stupidity, and conspicuous consumption to the Nth degree, but I have changed my mind. The toothpick also gets into others spots the flosser can't reach. I will now be PROUD to visit my dentist.

I gave it four stars instead of 5 because the floss, although very good, still shreds a tiny bit, due to my tight teeth;however it DOES last an entire flossing session, unlike regular floss. Over all, this is well worth the price and the very slight learning curve.

1. Eliminates that looping the string around your fingers stuff

2. Causes less damage to the gum, because (once you get the hang of it) one can control it better than the floss

3. Gets out more gunk than I did with the floss

I am not a fan of flossing, but I can do it properly, but it has always been stressful. If you have tight teeth, this gadget takes a bit of experimenting to get it down (seems to work better without wibrating), but it really feels better and seems to clean better. Try it, and take the time to learn to "drive" it. (It is cheap to try.)

I rinse the string after every tooth (you will want to), and it is reusable until it breaks or you feel like replacing it.

I ordered a Hummingbird flosser to try it as a replacement for the Reach Access Power Flosser I currently use, and it's not even close to be a good alternative.
The vibration is considerably weaker than on the Reach model, making it harder to insert between tight teeth. Unlike the Reach, which stays on when turned on, you have to continually press the button on the Oral B to keep it running. Finally, the handle is just too tiny, making it uncomfortable to use, especially when you have to keep pressing the darn button.

The description is misleading: when I read "Durable carrying case holds Oral B Flosser and Pick attachments for convenience" I expected a carry case that would hold both the flosser and the attachments. But it's just a little case that holds the attachments (flosser and pick), not the flosser itself.

If you're considering this product, or if you've already used it and are disappointed because it's uncomfortable to use, take a look at the Reach model instead. I've been using it daily for years and love it.

I was amazed at what this little flosser found between my teeth. Regular floss just didn't seem as effective. I'd like a waxier floss, but it's so effective, it's hard to be critical. I love it!

I've been using the Hummingbird since it came out, and am only on my second unit. I LOVE this! I was someone who detested flossing (my teeth are very tightly packed) and I would avoid it like the plague. I am fairly religious about using my Hummingbird--I only use the pick attachment--and it is easy and quick to use as well as portable. My checkups are a breeze! I also re-use the picks for several days, just rinse them off. I panicked when I was unable to find refills in the stores; I hope this product is never discontinued. For under six dollars I think the value is great!

To put it simply, this flosser will save me from the ravages of inflammed peridontal ligaments. Flossing has never been more pleasurable or productive, and I want to do it again and again. Each application results in surprising excretions of decayed meals that would never have surrendered to manual manipulation of my old flossing twine. My fingers are starting to stiffen from my arthritis, so the battery power really helps me to perform this important grooming function without asking for assistance from my younger wife. And the little hummer is thinner in the middle than at either end, so it should remain lodged snugly in the pocket even during vigorous activity, I can be sure I will not loose it when I go on outings. One of life's surprising pleasures in such a small sleek package. Thank you Oral Braun!

I purchased this to replace by gum stimulator, because I could not get replacement tips for it. I was thrilled with both the flosser and the pick. They work very well. The only problem is after about 3 months the unit stopped working. I replaced the battery - it wasn't that. Thinking I just got a bad unit I bought another one. Now after about 3 months this one is doing the same thing! Sometimes when you press the button it doesn't run. I have to tap it on the countertop or shake it to get it started. I don't want to buy a new one every three months.

PS. I soak the flosser and the pick in antiseptic mouthwash overnight so I can reuse them for a week or more.
