Flossing and gums
Asked for Male, 20 Years
Does flossing make your gums weak, because while flossing we have to get the string to the corners of every tooth and I feel like it creates a gap between the gum and the tooth?

No never. Flossing neither makes gum weak nor it creates gap between teeth. It is advisable to floss twice daily for a healthier gums.

Correct way to floss
Can I please know the right way to floss? How often is flossing recommended? Do people with braces need to floss more? If I have gaps in my teeth, do I need to floss? Will flossing harm my gums (it sometimes bleeds when I floss)?
