Patient Comments: Gum Problems - Flossing

Do you floss? If you do, what changes have you noticed in your gum and dental health?

I have recently started flossing. I"ve been doing it once a week for the past month. I"ve noticed much less sensitivity in my teeth and gums. I plan to continue flossing at this rate for a while.
