There may not be huge visible signs of flossing (or not) but it's a big health risk. Miniscule food gets stuck in between teeth and in gums and if not removed, can rot out areas and create cavities or soft spots. If you are brushing pretty well then you may get most of the excess debris out, but you can't always tell.
- Is it really helpful to have the floss habit?
- Do you have a travel floss?
- Does having a scented floss actually do anything?
- What flossing tools can I use to keep from damaging my gums? Mint dental floss sticks between my teeth and is hard to use. Any suggestions for good alternative ways to floss?
- Are you supposed to floss after every meal? How do you do that if you aren’t home?
- How to I get in to the habit of flossing again?
- Do you think flossing is important? If you don’t or do, why so?
- It doesn’t hurt your teeth to floss more than once a day, right?
- Do you recommend any particular type of floss for teeth with wide gaps between them?
- Do you floss the very backside of your very back/last molars between the tooth and just gums? Should I do that??? Is that weird?
