No and you shouldn’t see any. If you see blood while flossing, it’s a pretty good indicator of gum disease or other oral health problems. It could also be your flossing ‘too hard’ but that is pretty hard to do. You should visit a dentist if the bleeding continues for more than a couple days of regular flossing.

If it doesn't after that, talk to your dentist.
