I would like to ask about my mother's dental problem. Not all but some of her tooth has decayed. So just want to know that what can be done now. As implant is too costly so we would like to know about any other solution.

If you say her teeth are decayed, there are lots of treatment modalities available to treat decayed teeth. This may involve fillings, root canal treatment, crowns where needed or bridges for replacing missing teeth and even removable partial dentures. Dental Implants is a treatment modality but not the only treatment choice. Please visit your dentist for a thorough examination after which your dentist can guide you about all the treatment choices available for your mother.
Decayed tooth can be filled by artificial material or it can be first root canal treated followed by cap or it could be extracted which can be then prosthetically replaced by taking support from the adjacent tooth. Treatment depends upon the decayed tooth. Kindly consult a Dentist in person.
