My mom has started to pocket her food on the right side of her cheek. The tooth is bothering her there and no one knows which one it is as she will not allow them to look in her mouth. I brought her to a dentist last year when 3 of her teeth fell out and even having giving her a xanax so she would be more cooperative, (which she was) the dentist said they could not do anything for her unless she was under anesthesia which her primary care physician said no to, for obvious reasons. (BTW, she was not able to have X-rays done due to the logistic of the room and machine placement and she being in a wheelchair) So now here we are months later and we are downgrading her food preparation so that it is pureed and she takes 3 Motrin a day for overall pain. But now she is starting to lose weight as she is not eating as much and we fear if we don't do anything, this is a long and painful road to the end. Any advice?
