It is unfortunate that your circumstances resulted in the tooth loss. Moving forward, she should practice excellent oral hygiene, see the dentist twice a year, and restore any rotten teeth before they need extensive treatment. When circumstances improve, you can help her get dental implants to replace the missing molars. All the best...

We can't change the past but we can plan for the future and make changes to make our lives better. Seek dental care with a caring dentist, in a reduced fee but high quality setting such as a dental school or hospital based dental residency setting if necessary. Practice good oral hygiene, eat healthy, go for routine checkups and replace teeth in time when finances allow.
