The samples (GUM 412) from the dentist were the right size (fine) but the wire was weak and very hard to use. Any pressure would cause it to bend. These brushes are perfect. Fine to get into those tight spaces yet the wire is strong. I have easily gotten over a week's worth of use with little wear to the brush and no bending.
I wish I knew about these little brushes years ago. I have had two gum surgeries over the years. After I started using these brushes, I was amazed that there is almost always particles still hidden in the nooks and crannies of my teeth, even after vigorous rinsing and brushing with a Sonicare!.
Amazing.
Good little brushes, as long as they keep up the quality.

I need to use interdental brushes daily. The regular ones are too thick to get between my teeth. These are rated "fine" but are still too thick for about 35% of my spaces. Also, they bend and distort almost immediately and become unusable. I wish there were a fine tapered brush but I haven't located one yet. Probably a good product for most people, though.

Can not use. Only came with brushes.

Comments about G-U-M Proxabrush Refills, Go-Betweens, 414, Tight, 8 ea:

Neglected to mention that it does not come with a brush handle. It says not to use without this. Evidently this is only a replacement item which was NOT clearly indicated. Guess I am just out of my money spent for this.

Cannot not testify as to how this product works because I can not use it.

Mis-packaged; wrong item.

Comments about G-U-M Proxabrush Refills, Go-Betweens, 414, Tight, 8 ea:

Purchased 8 packs of narrow, cylindrical GUM brushes. Received them quickly.
Brushes actually received were wide, cone shaped or tapered brushes. The small product image on each pack showed the correct brushes ordered, but the brushes inside each of the packs were incorrect.
Returned them for a full refund.

        I have loved my interdental brushes forever. Now that they are so short, they don't feel as affective. I may switch to the horrible disposable units, but will feel bad for doing so as they create so much waste and plastic non the less!

          It lasts long the way I carefully use it (it is bendable, but if you use a gentle
          brushing stroke, it's not a problem).

            MUCH cheaper and easier to use than the brushes with handles permanently attached! I use it to ward off gingivitis.

            These brushes are awfully fragile and bend way too easily. I am lucky if I get more than a day's usage out of them. About half the time, they bend so easily that I have to use more than one per day. I know I should be using them daily, but I go through them so fast, it affects my willingness to use them.
