is it ok to do self cleaning of one's teeth with dental picks?

if it is not ok, then why do they sell consumer dental picks in the drugstores.
someone asked this question on another board and a dentist responed with "leave the teeth cleaning to the professionals." his issue was with access. one can not work on one's teeth as proficienty as another person can. i buy that. but who is to say you can't clean the few teeth that you are able to visualize properly?
