It is definitely time (past actually) for her to be seen. If you do have an equine dentist out, instead of a vet, DO NOT let them sedate her. They are not licensed to do so, it is illegal for them to administer drugs and highly dangerous. Also, check their 'certification' as really just about anyone can get some kinds of the certification done. I would personally choose a vet with dentistry training out, they are fit to deal with issues that may arise due to reactions to sedation (not nearly as uncommon as you'd hope to believe) as well as any other medical problems that could be going on in the oral cavity.
I bet once she is smoothed out, you'll have much less trouble, best of luck!
