Research indicates that anywhere from 30 to 80 percent of Americans don’t floss. Whatever the number is, it’s too high. “It's like the bumper sticker used to say: You don’t have to floss all your teeth, just the ones you want to save,” says Price. That doesn't mean flossing is more important than brushing, though. Both are strongly encouraged because they achieve different things. But try not to go nuts: Brushing too often—we’re talking six or seven times a day—can actually hurt your teeth. Stick to morning, noon, and night.
