Between teeth cavities are possible, you know.
I floss two times a year. While at the dentist have my bi-anual check up. So far, never had a cavity.
but my sonicare is so good I figure it's better than manual brush and not flossing...
No, I floss irregularly, ie. when I remember.
I floss all the time and i have no cavs....not yet at least.
I did floss everyday, but when my particular floss ran out, I couldn't find my floss in Australia and had to buy another brand. It wasn't nearly as good and were much tougher on my gums and such. I stopped using it soon afterwards (maybe 6 months ago).
Flossed tonight, and I've had one of those between teeth cavities. Stinks.
I floss usually 6/ out of 7 times a week.
I floss every morning when I brush my teeth and never had a cavity. I guess it works.
Not that I'm against flossing, but the very best way to avoid cavities is to have good teeth. I took very good care of mine (knowing my family history) but I couldn't help having inherited bad teeth genes, so during my teens and 20s I'd generally have ten or more cavities filled at every dentist visit. Now all of those old fillings are wearing out and are being replaced by crowns.
Nup. But my electric toothbrush has one of those fancy water jet things which does the trick! I turn that baby up to max power and have no problems.
I have always found using floss to be a major pain in the arse. Wrapping the stuff round your fingers and then trying to make sure you use a unused bit of the floss between each tooth... I always pull out too much or not enough flosh tape. Maybe I just don't know how to use it. Or I need one of those things 'dental flosh holder' thing-a-ma-gigs.
Plus I use listerine mouth wash too. That stuff is meant to kill more stuff than brushing alone.
Nah, I just make sure I give them a really good brushing. I actually can't floss my bottom teeth anyway because I still have a wire behind my bottom teeth to keep them straight after having my braces off years ago.
i floss all the time. i've got cavity-prone teeth so i gotta do everything i can to keep the choppers healthy. of course most of them are crowned already.
but hey, flossing's really for the gums anyway.
no gums=no teeth.
i floss regularly now since my dentist scared the crap out of me by describing how your immune system goes to hell as you get older and your mouth can't fight bacteria like it used to, resulting in cavities, of course. i'm now acutely aware of my age, and really want to keep my teeth until the day i die and no longer need them, so i floss every night.
oh, and i'm a sucker for praise from my dentist when i get good "scores" on my gums (the depth of the pockets between my teeth) during my check-ups. it's a weird little game i have to get better results every time i go.
i floss maybe once a week. its really hard with braces.
When I remember to floss, which is almost never. I've only had 1 cavity in my life when I was a kid that was on a babytooth that fell out shortly after getting it filled
I am only an occasional flosser, but for years I have consistently rinsed with warm water within minutes of eating something when at home.
I floss every other day. My dentist convinced me to bring a toothbrush to work and brush after lunch every day. Haven't had a cavity since I started doing that 4 or 5 years ago. Coffee stains are also less due to this.
I have never flossed , except to play with the stuff in a kind of "how does this work?" way.
I use a Braun electric toothbrush, one of the expensive models that does all the good stuff it says on the side of the box. Have done for nearly four years, and haven't had any dental problems. And my teeth stay clean for much longer, and feel much cleaner, than with a manual brush.
I do have some fillings... but I was a kid and I ate the wrong stuff I guess. I think diet and what you drink has a major impact on your dental health.
I don't floss at all, but then again I'm British so what do I know about dental hygiene?
Thanks for the Sunday laugh. I needed something to distract me from the ugly snowstorm still in progress.
I brush three times a day and maybe floss once a month.
No cavities - fluoride generation.
I started flossing after going to the dentist last week and my gums started bleeding while the hygienist was flossing for me. Gums are fine, but figured I might as well start before I start having gum/teeth problems, too. Jaw problems are enough for me.
I floss maybe twice a month at the most. I brush my gums but that doesnt help the whole between the teeth cavity.
I usually floss after going to the dentist and hearing "You need to floss." No warning, no flossing. If I do get the warning, my twice a day zeal lasts about a month or whenever I have a day that I am running late in the morning or too tired at night. Then, the stamina comes crashing down and I no longer believe.
