Should I have my mothers teeth pulled?
I recently took my mom for her annual cleaning, and the dentist informed me that Mom's teeth under the bridge are beginning to rot away. She suggested that we cut the bridge and pull out my nmothers 4 back teeth(upper) 2 on each side. My mother lives with me and has dementia, so I will not let let be put to sleep for the extractions, I am afraid she will wake up worse. My question is, my mother has no pain or problems from this yet, I want to wait until it bothers her if it ever does before subjecting her to losing her teeth. Is this wrong of me. Love her dearly but handling everything on my own (9 brothers and sisters forgot they have a mother) and I hate to disrupt her schedule. You know how unsettled they get with chance. Any opinions will be welcomed.
