I brush twice a day (I have to in the AM.....doesn't everyone? and I do before I go to bed, cause I don't want bad breath in case something gets frisky in the bedroom ;) AND, I feel weird about leaving food residue on my teeth all night long.

I do go to the dentist every six months.

I do NOT floss much. I should...I don't. Don't tell my dentist though.

I floss every night. I brush my teech twice a day. I brush them when I wake up in the morning and before I go to bed. I saw the dentist twice last year but before that I have not been to the dentist regularly.

I brush 2-3 times a day and only floss in the days before and after dental visits... They always say they can't tell I don't floss b/c I have good brushing technique! [8D] (Lessens the guilt)

I never flossed unless I was headed to the dentist. Then when I read that there was an ongoing study about a possible link between gum disease and pre-e, I started flossing daily!

I used to brush about three times a day, now I'm lucky if I can get in one![;)] Flossing... usually only when I realize that it's time to see the dentist - not good I know. I go to the dentist every six months.

I brush 2 times a day, and floss once in a while. I have major TMJ problems and don't get my teeth cleaned very often because it hurts my jaw for about a month afterward. I had read that poor dental hygeine is linked to premature labor, is it linked to pre-eclampsia too?

I brush 3 times a day and see the dentist 2 times a year...not so good with flossing.

I defnitely have "pink toothbrush" syndrome right now. It is amazing what pregnancy can do to your gums!

I go to the dentist twice a year, brush at least once a day. I try to floss daily, but that doesn't happen often. More when I have a cleaning coming up![;)] I've got lots of filling from my younger years, but have really made an effort to take care of my teeth in the last 5-10 years.
