Hello, Mam,the teeth usually begins to shake if the supporting structures of the teeth like the bone and the gums recede.You need to take her to a periodontist,gum specialist to get the condition of the tissues evaluated and then proceed with the treatment accordingly.Regards,Dr Suman Makam,Dental arts,Jayanagar,Bangalore

I would suggest you to go for OPG x ray for your mother. After seeing the Xray dentist can decide if her teeth can be saved by flap surgery where we put bone graft inside tooth.
The reason of receding gums can be hard improper tooth brushing, bone loss due to high blood sugar or bad bites.
Next Steps
Ask your mother apply less pressure while brushing. Get the blood sugar checked. visit a dentist to diagnose if she has bad bite.

Check for sugar level first, if it is in controlled & tooth mobility is too much, go for extractions if mobility is not more, go for proper gum cleaning & splinting of teeth so that they become firm.
Next Steps
if removal done ask your dentist for replacement options(removable/fixed), if cleaning &splinting done, do follow-up every after 6 months
Health Tips
before every dental procedure rule out underlying medical condition like diabetes or blood pressure

As mentioned earlier,you need to check whether she has any underlying medical condition especially Diabetis. Diabetics are prone to gum disease.Her teeth also needs to be attended to through tooth cleaning.Yes,if mobility is too much then extraction and replacement is the suitable option ,if mobility is less flap surgery and bone grafting to regain the lost support is ideal.
Next Steps

Firstly, pl check for any underlying medical history ! If the mobility is very less , then a gum treatment followed by bone graft might help.
If the mobility is severe , then extraction follwed by replacement is th treatment of choice.Take her to the nearest Dental centre for a thorough check up .
Regards.
