Hi, Brushing and flossing both solve different purpose. Brushing cleans exposed surface of teeth and flossing cleans surface between two teeth. So both are important for maintaining oral hygiene. Most common area for Decay is between the teeth where brush cannot reach. That's why we do flossing. Hope it answers your query.
