The rubber-tip stimulator is one of dentistry's best kept secrets! My husband and I have both had absolutely amazing results by using this tool every single night. Last week I received the best report I've ever gotten from my hygienist and my periodontist. I had no plaque! In recent years I've had gum tissue surgery and major gum/teeth problems. Now my condition is stable. Nothing has changed in my routine except for my daily use of the rubber tip stimulator, which I started using religiously about six months ago.

You might think you're done cleaning plaque from your teeth after flossing and brushing, but if you use the rubber tip, you'll see what you missed. I apply it with gentle massaging pressure to my entire gum line, on the inside of my mouth and along the front of my teeth. Then I "scrape" the tip upward on the surface of each tooth, as if it's a tiny rubber brush, including in between teeth wherever it will fit - it's shocking how much more plaque gets removed! The best thing is that you can't hurt your gums with this, the way you can cause puncture wounds with those stiff proxa-brushes. The rubber tip can be used vigorously! If you have any sore spots along your gum line, a little extra stimulation with this thing will take care of that in a day or two.

It's cheap, easy to use, and each tip lasts a long time (replace the tip when the point becomes bent; follow instructions re: warm water). if you're in a hurry, you'll find that just a minute of rubber-tip usage will be beneficial. It's almost 'fun' to use, because it's much less clumsy and messy than flossing, it's quicker and it feels GOOD! Thank you, Drugstore.com, for offering this vital oral care product.

i have an oral b pick but the rubber is getting scratchy cuz have had it a long time but it still works better than this cheap piece of junk. the rubber tip is so sharp and long its irritating. i can't clean my gum line cuz its very bendy. I'm going to try to find a good quality one at drugstore that looks like my old one which cost $10.oo over 10 years ago. the rubber should be shorter and the tip should be rounded not poi ty.

i still have the original thats 14 years old. the rubber tip on that one is shorter and not pointy and cleans food particles well without irritating my gums. this one is horrible. the tip is so long, bends sharp and pointy it hurts my gums. it doesn't remove one tiny food particle.. ITS TOTAL WORTHLESS JUNK.

    I use this product to get things such as seeds from blackberries out from between my teeth. It is a great product. I had one a while ago but lost it, so was thrilled to find it here.

    Comments about G-U-M Gum Stimulator, 600RQ, 1 ea:

    This is small emough to take a place near the TV remote and be used while watching the a.m. news, As an ex-smoker, I am concerned about gum circulation, and nothing works better than a gentle stimulation twice daily with this tried and true massager. It isn't elegant, but poor gum health is worse, so the results are worth it.

              Comments about G-U-M Gum Stimulator, 600RQ, 1 ea:

              This is the only dental tool that will clean the gums behind my wisdom teeth. Without the G-U-M (Butler) Gum Stimulator, I imagine that I would have lost at least one wisdom tooth by now (I'm 57 years old).

              This product is no longer available at my local pharmacies or grocery stores. I really appreciate Drugstore.com having the G-U-M (Butler) Gum Stimulator and refills in supply.
