Do YOU floss your TEETH??! - November 23rd 2012, 09:54 AM

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you're having a dandy day.

I floss my teeth once a day - just before I go to bed at night.

DO YOU FLOSS YOUR TEETH?!

GREAT BIG HUG
Craig!!!

I have really sensitive gums due to my disability (E.D.S.) so dental floss makes my gums bleed easily.

Yeah I have dodgy-bleedy-gums too.
I brush and use mouthwash and have no problems.

Thanks for the "NO! I have no teeth" option. I feel like it was created especially for me to troll on.

Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

I floss once a day, though on occasion I do forget!

I used to have terrible hygiene when I was younger. It wasn't until I started serious dating when I realized how important it was. So now I brush my teeth, floss, and use mouth wash before bed. And of course brush in the morning too.

A good quality electric toothbrush does the job a lot faster and better. If there remains (very rarely) something stubborn that doesn't come out even with the electric toothbrush, then I floss. That has not happened for over a year though.

No. Any time they do it to me at the dentist's office I am in agony, it hurts so bad. :/
I brush and use mouthwash twice a day, though, and my dentist has been proud of me for not having any cavities and taking care of my teeth so well even though my mouth is severely overcrowded. ^_^
Although he nags me to floss.
No.

I cannot recall it. I'm super lazy as well


What lies ahead is unknown. However, in some times, I've sighted several smooth pavements. I myself am the mender of roads, and it is with these we work on.

I floss occasionally, or if I have something stuck between my teeth. I brush my teeth pretty much every day and mouthwash occasionally. My teeth are pretty good though.

I'm much better with oral hygiene than I used to be (brushed my teeth once every 2 - 3 weeks), because sometime in the last couple of years it clicked that these are the only teeth I have . . . so I'd better look after them.

I do sometimes, but usually I forget or I can't find my dental floss.

Once a day before bed. Sometimes I get too busy or forget, but I do almost every day.

I should daily, but I usually twice a week or so. I'm trying so hard to get it to daily, I just get so tired.
