Help! My mom is in agony!

Well, lets see, how can I make a long story short,
A while ago, my mother had to get all of her teeth extracted, after that, she tried dentures, but they didn't work for her, so she decided that implants would be the next best thing.
Not knowing all that it involved, she rushed ahead to a specialist and he did the implants and she had to see another specialist to put the crowns in over the implants.
Ever since, she has been in misery, complaining of a constant clogged feeling. She had went back to her specialist several times to fix the problem and each and everytime, he had made it worse, so she refused to see him again.
She had lost 60 pounds since last December, when not even trying to, due to her not being able to eat or drink anything without having the feeling of popcorn stuck in between her abutments and crowns.
Now, she is at the point where she is looking for someone to remove the crowns, in hopes to get "implant retained dentures".
She had a consultation with a place called "Gentle dental" Although, the man told her she had extensive mouth work that he could not work on.
She is clueless as of what to do now. She is completely depressed and crying all the time over this. If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly be appreciated! Thanks so much!
