    I brush my teeth once a day when I get out of bed. If I'm going out like drinking or for a meal in the evening then they'll be lucky enough to get another brush!

    Otherwise, just once a day, and no floss! But that one brush lasts quite a while, and my teeth are (and I quote my dentists) "perfect, I wish everyone had teeth like yours then my job would be so much easier" - the most I've ever had done to them is had a quick polish with that funny little machine thingy that tastes nice

    :p:

    I'm not from the UK, just a heads up to whoever asked this question to the Brits.

    I personally HATE flossing, it's not exactly the most fun thing in the world to do, but I always do it because it would be gross to have old food particles stuck between my teeth.. bleh!!! :puke:

    It's not so much the stuff that's stuck between the teeth than the plaque that's stuck under the gum... :puke:

    I actually became a bit more obsessive about flossing after being in North America. My Canadian housemate didn't have any floss and was starting to stress out so I told her "Don't worry. Not flossing from time to time doesn't matter". At the time, I would only do it maybe once a week if there was some floss around. Then she replied "I'm not taking any advice about dental hygiene from a British person" :eek: It made me realise she had a point...

    LOL One of my cousins had that same opinion about how flossing everyday isn't really important, because you can look in the mirror and not see anything between your teeth.. then one day she went to the dentist and they have these "high-tech flat screen monitors things" there now where they can show the patient movies about hygiene and stuff and it grossed her out so much.. I don't think she's gone a day without flossing since :rofl: <-- *edit* I just noticed that smiley has nice clean teeth... but does he floss!!?!!? :eek:
