anything that exists that is thinner than toothpicks and soft picks to get food out between the teeth? I have an extra tooth on the bottom front that leaves a whole between teeth where food gets stuck there and is hard to get out

Dental floss is the first thing that comes to mind.
There's also interdental brushes, I like softpicks because they're small, convenient, and inexpensive:

Get a water pick...they're fantastic and leave your teeth feeling like they've just been professionally cleaned. Beats dental floss any day.

WaterPik is nice. If you don't want to spend the $$ you can look into SuperFloss from Oral B. It has a normal floss end and also a "fuzzy" section to help clean larger spaces.

This! They aren't cheap but they do the best job of getting the bits out from under your teeth. Flossing usually leaves me with little bits under my teeth and the water jet washes them away! The first time you do it you will be shocked by the bits that come out! Invest the money, you'll be glad you did!

Choose your dental floss based on the type of contact between teeth. To make sure that you are flossing effectively and not wasting your time.
