Mom has lower teeth but all her uppers have broken off. I am not opposed to spending money but I don’t think she can sit in a dental chair very long for any procedures. I am concerned about the roots in the upper jaw of course. And how to eat. Lower teeth will bang on upper gums. What to do???
I was able to get hold of her old dentist. AL transported her there. He spent 10 minutes fixing some sharp edges. Don’t put this poor lady through unneeded procedures.
My sig other had several teeth replaced with screws and new teeth, and it took 6 months to complete. I know ads say new teeth in one day, that doesn't make any sense as the jaw bone need to regenerate around the screws and that takes months. Sig other is in his early 70's and the dentist needed to use cadaver bone to fill in the thinning places.
How is Mom eating now? If she is able to chew with what is left of her upper teeth, then just have the dentist check to make sure the broken teeth don't have any sharp edges. The dentist might do x-rays to make sure no infections are starting.
