That's tricky.....does you mom do well with mild anesthesia? If so, perhaps they can knock her out and use crowns instead of implants? Dentures are usually not a good option for people with AD/dementia because they will keep pulling them out. When I had to take my gma, they put her on valium but after she got bad (mentally) I couldn't take her anymore.
