I agree with Lynne. It might just cause more trouble then it's worth. BUT if she starts having toothaches and/or tooth infections, you may not have a choice but to do the sedation to have her mouth taken care of. I had to do that choice too with my Gma and had to weigh the pros and cons. But if ever in the case she needs sedations, there is no need to fear about her opening her mouth. Dentists and oral surgeons have manual mouth openers.
