Great advice. I never brush my teeth without flossing, too. My best dentist (now retired ) had a poster on the ceiling of one of his treatment rooms so you couldn't miss it that said: "You don't have to floss all your teeth - just the ones you want to keep." I monitor the cleanliness of my horns regularly, and I very rarely have to clean them out. I do use Herco Spitballs after every week's use, though.
