Is it ok to chew gum with braces?

Really chewing gum wont do any major harm to your braces, it will bend a wire or loosen a bracket or band if you aren't careful. The real reason why you should chew gum is because it "sets" your teeth into position. Meaning your basically stopping what the braces are trying do do, braces move your teeth but chewing gum stops them. Counter productive, but not really hazardous...

I think you should ask the dentist.Plus here is the answer: Popcorn – It may not seem like it, but Popcorn is the single worst thing you can eat with braces. ...

Can you chew gum with braces?

Yes you can chew gum with braces. I am the mother of 2 children with braces and a second won't go by where they don't have gum in their mouth;they chew gum 24/7. Just make sure that it's sugar free, because then it will affect the braces, and also put cavities under the brackets. All dentists use the same kind of wire and brackets, so just if you chew sugar free gum, then brackets won't fall off. If brackets fall off, I wouldn't think its the gum, because it probably isn't caused by gum. It's the way they are biting, so just try to work on that with them. I'm sure of all of this, as I'm an orthodontist. Just make sure that the gum is sugar free and you'll be fine.-Dr.Kathy :)Edited by ratsrock2957Yes you can, and it DOES NOT have to be sugar-freebecause I chew gum that has sugar in it never gets stuck in my braces. I usually chew Big Red or Doublemint and it doesn't get stuck, but I don't think that you can chew gumballs or other really sticky gum. Orthodontists are liars and you can eat almost everything you ate when you didn't have braces on, and orthodontists wouuldn't know because for most of them they have either neever had braces or had them when they were kids so they don not remember, and if they did get it stuck in their braces it was probably because they were chewing some sort of bubblegum or other sticky gum, and the gum and braces are alot newer so it won' get stuck in the braces like the orthodontists remember when they were eating their tootsie rolls back in the early 1900's
