Can't say I've ever done it.

and prevent gum disease. You won't get tooth decay as long as you don't have too much sugar or sugar too often even if you don't floss.
My two brothers and I have always brushed our teeth the same amount, eaten the same things throughout childhood, but I've had a fair few fillings and I'm not sure they've had any. I think I take after my mum, whereas they take after my dad.
This is all anecdotal, but clearly true.
The difference is makes when you haven't done it for a while can be quite drastic, which encourages you to do it more.
I really detest personal grooming,* but I also really don't like being ungroomed. So, I'll slug through the brushing of my teeth twice a day and I'll shave every day, so as to avoid emiting grotesque oral odours and so as to avoid looking like a bum, but I draw the line at flossing. That's just ludicrous.
*Exceptions: I love taking long showers, I'm somewhat fastidious about my hair, I like to be neatly (yet hiply) dressed, and I get a strange kind of pleasure from plucking my nasal hairs (TMI?).

rast night I dreamt that I was in the pharmacy and they had different scents and I bought mint.
