In brief: Previous Denture

If your mother's dentures are functioning well, things should be pretty standard.
If, however, she's doing poorly with them, and the dentures are not satisfactory, i suggest a specialist in dentures, a prosthodontist. He or she will be able to help make the best dentures possible, given her trigeminal neuraligia, irregardless if it impacts her dentures or not.
