Hi good morning , dentures should change every 5-6 years, if you wear for long time they will loose the ridge.(ridge will go down) fitting will not come perfectly. If you can go for 2 implant supported overdentures. Dentures will not not move. They will fix 2 implants in lower jaw wait for 3-4 months, then they will attach to the dentures. Its like pen &cap. Ask your dentist for proper help. Thank you.
What is your mothers age does she suffer from diabetes or other conditions if not then fixing the teeth is a good option as it preserves bone n keeps it good for a long time due to direct function.
