    I brush my teeth at least twice a day. I don't really see the point of floss because a toothbrush can do exactly the same job.

    how can you never floss, though :confused: . you'll get gingivitis :eek:
    You won't get gingivitis cos of not flossing i don't think i've ever flossed in my life and i've never had it. A toothbrush does the job just as well as floss could. I don't get why people floss so much, do you not use toothbrushes?

    Hmmm this poll was interesting. So do the results show that we're not careful with dental hygiene or that flossing isn't that important?

    I floss. I think it's important. I find that a tooth brush doesn't quite take the dirt away from your teeth, especially when you've been eating fruit i find.

    I brush my teeth twice a day and floss maybe once a week... I don't really bother with flossing too much to be honest. And I don't think it's doing me any harm, because when I went to the dentist last week, she applauding me for the excellent care I was taking of my teeth! So yay!
