hmm...seems like most do it all the time or not at all...not too many inbetweens

as someone that skips out on that when rushed I am going to try and take her advice of just doing it 2 times a week, see how that goes.


and yeah P-Murder those floss pick joints might make a huge difference in terms of speed and convenience...I'll have to snag some next grocery store visit

I personally don't like the type of floss picks professor murder posted.

These are the ones I use and they are super easy to use, I love them:

Some people don't even brush once a day and you are talking about flushing. Please.

Use these things:



They're flexible barbed toothpicks. They brush in between gums. These things will get you hooked. Better than flossing

Only when I'm at the dentist and he does it. I've never had a cavity though so i must be doing something right.

I always got gum in my car im chewing, so that's something. I probably floss at least 2 times a week. My mouth has a certain point where its like, "nuh uh... you floss now".

I should prolly brush more than once or sometimes twice a day.

Buuuuuut...

Twice a week? That was her advice? Damn, every dentist I've ever consulted with almost always advised at least once daily. Personally, I floss twice a day. I couldn't have it any other way.

I googled "flossing once a week," because that's how much I've been flossing as of late due to lack of time. And I just think it's cool that insidehoops is the top result.

If you don't have the time I highly recommend looking into oil pulling which can be done in a car.
Does this involve swirling coconut oil around your mouth?

"lack of time"

It takes like 2 minutes top to floss

"lack of time" is an excuse people use because they are lazy. Not trying to hate but don't pretend otherwise.

I floss 2 to 3 times per day

I brush with a Sonicare toothbrush twice a day and use Act mouthwash 2 times per day

I drink soda or juice about 1 time per month

I've been doing this for about 15 years. I have had about 15 cavities, 1 root canal, and 2 crowns since then. Just had 4 cavity fillings done two months ago. Gums are good though.

My brother (and other family and friends) rarely flosses, drinks soda, never uses Act, etc... 0 cavities, no issues
