It shouldn’t hurt to floss. I’m not a dental expert but the fact that it hurts means your gums are probably not in great shape. Do they bleed? You might want to check with your dentist to see if you have gum disease. Maybe invest in a waterpik, water flosser. They are wonderful and are less tedious than string floss. I feel a healthy mouth is very important for overall health. Good luck to you!
