I'm in my mid 30s and had a full extraction done 11 months ago. I just got my permanent dentures. The tops are awesome. The bottoms fit fantastically, but I am so freaking sore by the end of the day and it hurts. I actually cry when I put them in. I've been swishing with salt water and taking Advil.
