Agreed, lily. Your dentist knows.

The bleeding stops after you floss for a while, assuming you floss correctly (up and down both sides, as far down into the gums as you can get). Flossing's not just to get crap that gets stuck between teeth but to clean off plaque from all over. You can lie about it, but your dentist will know anyway.

My dentist busted out photos of people with gum disease a few years back. They were absolutely beyond disgusting. As a result, I floss daily - honest. It's such a habit now I don't even think about it. And if it prevents me from looking like those photos it will be time well spent!

Heh. I'd rather just not say anything than lie about how often I floss.

Why lie? My dentist knows I don't, she's the one giving me advice on how to take care of my gums without it since the bleeding gets to bad when I floss.

Bahahaha I always do to my dentist! But at least I use listerine if I'm too lazy to floss... The ads say you can do that...
