I had to vote "I'm an Oompa Loompa"! It was too funny and random to resist.

You took a shine to the Oompa Loompa joke, eh?

I indicated that I don't use dental rinse, but that's not totally true. After I brush my teeth, I swish around all the saliva and toothpaste foam in my mouth for a minute before spitting it out.

despite your very thorough poll, you did miss a few things, including categories such as "I floss my teeth every other day"

I love my teeth, though finding the right toothpaste is a pain.

The oompa loompa box was a scary road to travel so I diverted to play with the normal safe people

@Vac... Of COURSE she had to shine on the oompa loompa joke! That was hysterical!

I have overly sensitive gums and even the "gentle" flosses hurt like crazy, even if I gently glide it in, so I generally only floss if I have something stuck that I can notice. I also use Listerine to help kill some of the bacteria that gets in between teeth since floss hurts so much. Even routine cleanings at the dentist are torture for me. But I go! And I have pretty healthy teeth!

How did you know I was an Oompa Loompa? I've been hiding this secret from everyone for years. You know how much of a bitch it is to get skin bleaching and brown hair dye all the time? Do you?

I'd say I floss every other day. I used to do it everyday but I've been lazy. With this poll, I will recommit to everyday flossing! Thanks for the kick in the rump

I am not permitted to reveal my sources.

I would like you to know, however, that I do not discriminate against those of other worlds.

Sometimes I forget, but most of the time I always follow my routine because I was cursed with awful teeth and gums.

I'm great with brushing and rinsing but flossing literally makes me sick. I try to do it anyway though.

My mom is a dental hygienist, so good dental hygiene was ingrained since I was little. There was no choice

I brush every day and rinse with a fluoride rinse. I have some teeth whitening stuff that I brush on after I brush my teeth, so sometimes I brush my teeth twice in a day. I have chipped a few teeth trying to floss, so I just pretty much avoid that. My teeth are too close together to be able to floss. I always make sure to brush my tongue, too, because my mouth just tastes so much better when I don't have a plaque covered tongue.

I brush twice per day, floss one per day, and use mouthwash once per day.

If I'm just staying home, I'll brush my teeth only once--at night. If I'm going out soon after I wake up, I'll brush my teeth twice that day. I don't floss, but do rinse with a mouthwash. My toothbrush has a tongue-thing on it.

This is because I hate the way toothpaste-food tastes, and for that reason alone.

I brush twice a day. At night, I will first brush, then scrap my tongue, then floss, then Listerine.

I'm trying to pick up the habit of flossing, but I'm pretty lazy. Brushing twice a day seems to be the most I can make myself do regularly

I brush twice a day, use a mouth wash once a day, and I floss once a week. I used to try to do it more often, but I get freaked out over how much my gums bleed.

Gums bleed less if you floss daily. Try it for a month and see what happens.
