I love this question because I often wonder too. I don't particularly floss regularly haha and when I get chided by others because of it, I tell them it's a waste of time because I reckon brushing my teeth thoroughly is enough. But that's just me -- I don't know if anyone else feels the same. Moreover, I had a pretty bad experience with flossing when I was younger and I ended up hurting my gums so it did put me off flossing after that. Whenever I visit the dentist, he doesn't say anything about flossing so I think I'll be okay not flossing regularly. Just brushing thoroughly and going for the stipulated dentist visits ought to be okay. My two cents.
