Yes, absolutely - twice a day. I didn't used to until years ago when I was at the dentist, the hygienist explained why it is so vital. Brushing doesn't get out the gunk between your teeth. Floss!

Not every day but a few several times per week for sure.

OMG don't you hate it when you can smell that ****ty sulphur smell on ppl's breath and you're thinking FLOSS, DAMMIT. I was in a training yesterday and the trainer had that smell and kept coming over to my station. Yuck!

I know ppl who have never flossed; they believe it is unnecessary.

Yes, a couple times a day. I use floss pics which are so much easier than regular floss, so I floss more often.

No. I would like to among other things such as working out but it just doesn't happen. I probably do once every few months.

I went 7+ years without going to the dentist and I've had a lot of problems because of that. Now, I floss certain teeth a couple times of day and my entire mouth every day.

I do every day now...since having gum issues. I'll admit...I do fall asleep now and then...but it's 6 out of the 7 days a week at least.

I don't. I've tried to get into the habit of doing it but I just can't seem to. I hate it with a strange passion.

Same here. I can't stand it when there is food in between my teeth. It drives me crazy.

As the old saying goes:

You don't have to floss all your teeth.
Just the ones you want to keep.


Yes, indeed, I do floss, every day. I've been away from the dentist for long periods of time, and when I went back, my teeth and gums were in good shape because I had continued to floss during that time. It makes all the difference in the world.

I do floss most days. You don't get a lot of the gunk out of your teeth just by brushing. I can't stand to feel any food between my teeth.

I do now in the last few weeks. My dentist said "If you hate the dentist so much you need to floss every day!" Yes I have panic attacks at the dentist.

Nope, my dentist told me that he normally tells everyone to floss, but that in my case flossing wouldn't be a good idea. I have small jaws (don't have enough room in my mouth for my teeth, and don't have space between my teeth).
Flossing hurt like hell and would according to the dentist damage my teeth.
I don't ever get food between my teeth either, so it probably isn't necessary either

I try my hardest. I use the floss pic's as well, and floss almost every day. When I get to the hardest (and last) part of my work schedule, I sometimes space and forget to do it before I fall asleep or before I rush out the door. I can't say it's easy for me to 100% keep a routine on swing shifts.

I've been trying too, but I don't think I'm winning the battle just yet. Still, anything's better than nothing.

I work in a dentist office and know how important it is to floss daily, but I don't like doing it. I asked the dentist if he would floss my teeth each morning for me. This was his response.... Guess not. I now brush my teeth before I get in my bath and floss in the tub while I wait for my conditioner to set. It's becoming my nightly routine and working out nicely.
