Not smart: Open a can. Lid doesn't completely come off. Have to wiggle it back and forth 'till breaks loose. Gum does same thing to your braces. Want to be in braces longer, run the risk of damage to your teeth, make more frequent trips to the orthodontist for repairs, have to taste the braces sealers all over again? If so, chew gum.
