    i’m a dental hygienist and you’re probably much more strict with your regimen than i am 🙂  but of course, i do floss regularly!

    um gross! I mean I understand not flossing all the time.. but never flossing? and people wonder why they get cavities (not including the people that just have weak enamel)

    I am compulsive about flossing. Once I realized that the crap stuck in between your teeth contributes a ton to bad breath, I have been the flossing queen.

    DH isn’t quite as obsessive, but his mouth is always fresh (he loves those listerine strips)

    I floss like… twice a year. No cavities ever.

    Yes!!!  My husband and I both floss every day.  We want to keep our teeth forever.  😉

    I do it maybe once a month, or if I feel something stuck :-/ It’s just not part of my routine. I’ve never had a cavity, my new dentist complimented me on how pretty my teeth are, and the hygienists told me I was doing a great job keeping my permanent retainer clean, so I don’t really have the motivation to change habits yet. 🙂

    Not gonna lie, I don’t floss. I brush really good and use mouth wash. Flossing freaks me out…the plaque or food particules that get released in your mouth or that stick to the floss make me want to barf. I just can’t. I should, but I can’t.

    BTW, I used to get cavities as a child (I hated brushing as a kid and have weak teeth) but haven’t had a single one in years. I can’t remember the last time I had a cavity. My dentist actually gives me glowing reviews when I go see him. <—I was actually surprised to hear this because of my non-existant flossing habit

    @MrsPanda99:  Aren’t teeth falling out dreams really about the fear of aging/dying? I would google but my office has blocked all the “alternative belief” sites.
