Anyone here have experience with this? My mom is 89 years old and is living in assisted living. I received a call last night from her CNA stating that one of mom's bridges, a stationary one, broke out of her mouth. I was able to make her an appt at a dentist near where she lives. Bottom line, there is decay which caused the bridge to break and we are now thinking the best opiton would be to pull the remaining four teeth she has and just put in a bottom plate of false teeth. The problem is that she would be without teeth on the bottom for about
6 weeks to two months while the gum is healing from the teeth extraction. I'm just wondering how mom will handle all this and if there is any other option? She is really not happy at all about
this and keeps telling me to forget it, that she will just deal with what she has, which really is not an option, but...go argue with someone with AD... just wondering if anyone else here has any suggestions?
