Do you floss your teeth?

I floss my teeth once a day and brush twice a day. I know some people don't floss quite as often but I think it's very important to, as food can get trapped in between your teeth and go rotten, causing bad breath and decay. If you do floss, do you have a preference? I like the mint flavoured floss, it gives mey m outh a fresh minty clean feeling. I also don't like my floss too thin. I feel it's ineffective. So what's your take on floss?

flossing - your teeth
Yes I do and I love doing it because it makes my mouth feel so much better. I love the taste of the spearment flavor which makes my mouth or breath smell sweeter too. Besides all of that, it's very good for your teeth.

I brush my teeth about 3 times a day and I also use a toothpick to clean my teeth out after eating. I floss about every other day to get whatever the toothpick didn't get out from in between them. I like the mint flavored floss also and mine if fairly think too and it cleans between the teeth fairly well.

I like thicker minty floss as well. I floss and brush twice a day. I do carry floss in my purse though in case I eat something during the day that I just can't get out of my teeth. So sometimes though rarely I floss 3 times a day.

Dental floss is very good thing to practice its application on our teeth. especially for those who is having tooth-gap-internal, where it traps unused foods after our food intake and where tooth brush does not work for its cleaning purpose. But I don't use it as I experienced tooth gaps now after all of my premolar tooth gone. So, now I'm using liquid wash product, LISTERINE, to kill both; bacteria and bad breath.
