The answer is simple. Daily! However, the Academy of General Dentistry says that even flossing a couple of times a week is better than not flossing at all. So if you are like most of us, and flossing is a tough habit to develop, try putting your floss on your bathroom sink where you can't miss it, and floss when you can. Some flossing is better than none.

How Often Should I Floss?

I just realized I am in my forties now but I no longer brush my teeth every after meal. I just brush my teeth in the morning after I take a bath and that would be it. Maybe it's that way because I only eat once a day. Maybe I am still brushing my teeth every after meal. The only difference was when I was younger I eat four times a day. Now I only eat breakfast and then I brush my teeth after. I don't remember using any floss or being advised by my mother or dentist to do so.

It's important to have good oral hygiene habits, and part of that is knowing how often to floss. Many people think that they should only floss when they see visible plaque or food particles in their teeth, but that's not necessarily the case. Depending on how often you eat and drink throughout the day, you may need to floss more than once a day.
