A sensitive tooth will often find it difficult to chew them and appliances may break due to their hardness. But like most foods we cover, there are “safer” ways of consuming your foods, in this instance make sure you chop your salad pieces into small bite-sized pieces.

Steamed vegetables are much softer, as are certain fruits you may add which we will cover in this post.
