Intuitively speaking, I'd say optimal times for flossing would be after every meal. Twice a day is best, but getting in at least one flossing session per day (any time) is the bare minimum.

Rufus, I went to the dentist for a deep gum cleaning.. they examined my mouth and found some spots to be severe problem areas (6 rating meaning onset of periodontis). After the deep cleaning, it seems like food is getting stuck in my teeth more easily. Is this normal? My teeth and gums are sore as hell as it is right now, and the food getting caught is annoying as hell.
