Been wearing dentures for about 30 years. Didn't wear them very much for the first 10 years, then finally decided that they were paid for, might as well wear them. I had to glue the bottoms in for the 1st 25 years and they finally go so loose that I took them back to the dentist that made them and asked if he could reline them. Yep, he could. I picked them up about a week later and we got to talking. I told him that when he made them, he told me that he was making them so that I would wear them and not leave them in the dresser drawer. He agreed that was what he said. Then I told him that I didn't know I would have to come back every 25 years to get them overhauled. He said "I really didn't think that you would live this long. At any rate, for the last 5 years, I have not uses ayn adhesive on them and they still fit snug. Did have one of tooth to break and he also replaces it. When I accused him of using cheap Chinese teeth, he gave me the evil eye and said that will be $25.
edit to say, I have no idea what the cost would be today.
