My 86 year old mother decided to get 2 mini implants to attach her bottom denture, they were working for a year of so. She started having issues and the dentist keep changing her o-rings every 2 months, and charged her each time, so we switched dentist, same thing, o-rings not working, switched dentist, third dentist, new dentures, o rings being changed every 2 weeks, should we change dentist again, he doesn’t charge her for each o-ring change. He’s been charging her for adjustments. What is going on here? Why would my mother need so many adjustments and why the need to change o-rings so often? What are my options here?
