Do you need to floss your teeth? It depends
from Medical Xpress
As a dentist, my patients often ask whether they still need to floss even though they brush their teeth. The answer is — that depends. A review of the research on this topic found flossing, combined with regular brushing, reduced the chance of bleeding gums. But the review could not provide evidence flossing prevented holes (tooth cavities) from forming.
