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.

        For me, a long brush with a changeable brush is the best, but I've had difficulty finding brushes thin enough to fit between my tight teeth. This works for me.

          I have used these brushes for a long time and loved them. Before that I used the cylindrical shape. The last time I got these they were larger than normal. They come in different sizes and this is supposed to be the smallest, but now they do not fit between my teeth. They package is still labeled the same but the brushes are larger. I wrote the company that makes them and got no response. Drugstore.com allowed me to return them.

          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.

          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!
