Nothing can replace natural teeth as efficiently, but implants have done much to stabilize dentures to approximate the most natural replacement of teeth lost and can be easily determined prior to committing to such expense and time both on the part of the patient and the Dr. You can read up on implants as they relate to dentures prior to making your decision, then consult your local listings for a specialist in your area that deals with this problem. There is no reason why your mother cannot learn to cope with replacement of her dentition in this matter. It can even be done in stages to accommodate budgets toward her long-term dental health.

This is the kind of procedure that once it is started, it needs to be finished for best psychological acceptance that the natural teeth are no longer in place.
