Thanks. That's just what I've been told the past 5-6 times I've gone. At my age, I don't really see the point of going. I'm paying for dental insurance which I guess is kinda stupid not to go but I see no point in going. I take care of my teeth pretty well outside of the flossing.
haven't been to dentist in 5 years. i floss a handful times of year. is it really that bad?
i've been trying to get into the habit of using those floss/tootpicks after i eat but everytime i buy some people go trhough my stash in less than a week
Depends. It's not uncommon for college students/young adults to skip going for a few years. I've seen some that really haven't had all that much going on and I've also seen some that end up needing some serious work. Flossing becomes important as you get older, and you only need to do it once a day.
