Toothpicks: For hors d''oeuvres, not teeth

Have something stuck in your teeth? Use a toothbrush, dental floss or dental pick designed to clean between teeth. Save toothpicks for canapes and mini quiches. If you use a toothpick to clean your teeth, you risk injuring your gums, and it''s probably not as effective as devices designed to clean your teeth.
