toilet wax ring

I take out my toilet to fix a clog and I put it back in. Since I did not get a new toilet so I though I don't need to replace the wax ring. My question is "does wax ring need to be replace everytime you take out the toilet, or does wax ring only need to be replace only if new toilet is used"?

The wax ring needs to be replaced every time it is disturbed. It is your only defense against water leakage, and more importantly the back up of sewer gasses. So, go spend the $2 and get it right. Good luck.
