Flossing my teeth

When I floss my teeth, the floss goes all the way down my tooth in between the tooth and gum.  It is like the gum is loose from my tooth.  Is this normal?  I do where a sleep apnea oral appliance and I am wondering if this could be causing this?  Thanks

Hi and welcome. Sounds normal as the gum is not bonded to the tooth but is laying around the tooth and is supported by its own structure. Some times it good to use a tooth pick tool like the dentist uses and clean a bit below the gum line to get any tarta out
One thing that as we age gums do recede but more in the bottom front teeth.
