I did not know there would be problems eating salads with false teeth. I though the only problem would be with chicken and bones. No problem with the chicken....you could always pass in on here. Sorry cannot help you with suggestions on looking after the teeth.

i like to chew on carrots and i suppose it might not be good for false teeth,i also like some mukhwas and sometimes i think it may not be good for my teeth.

Hi Riya, my hubby has front 4 false tooth which he had lost in a car accident. As such, dentist didn't give him any suggestions for taking care of those teeth, and hubby also never paid any heed to it.

I don't know why the tooth wouldn't handle salads. Unless you were biting down on large chunks of chicken or crunchy croutons with your front teeth. Just make sure you don't do this. I'm thinking that what the dentist doesn't want you doing is biting corn on the cob, or a sandwich that had a large hunk of meat in it. Also, don't eat chewy candies and avoid gum. Both of these will pull out the false tooth if you aren't careful.
