15 year old dental implant side effects

My mom is 78 yrs old. About 5 yrs ago she started showing signs of head, voice, and hand trembling. Her PCP prescribed Propranolol 160mg and said it "may" be Parkinson's. I wasn't satisfied with "maybe" and researched for a Neurologist that could educate us on what it may be. We later found out through an office visit its Essential Tremors. What a relief! As I read about titanium allergies my mother has dental implants 6 or 8 she's had for about 15 yrs that need repaired. She also has been diagnosed with with COPD, she breathes with her mouth open, wheezing, chronic fatigue, and depression an unsteady gait. All of this has become more and more noticeable! Even with the series if medicines her ET and breathing medications seen to work for a few then one day she is gasping for air or falling over. I'm concerned and also wonder if the dentals implants could be a factor? Where do I start to ask for testing to see if it "may be" titanium contributing to her health concerns
