If the dentures are otherwise in good shape, they could be relined. The process of relining a denture is done by a dentist working with a dental laboratory. A new mould is made of the gum tissues and the inside of the dentures are remade to fit the gum tissues, which continue to shrink overtime. The denture should need to be kept by the dentist/lab for a period of time while the procedure is completed, generally between 3-24 hours pending the material used. This procedure often needs to be redone every 2-7 years (varies according to bite strength, size of jawbone, desire for fit by the patient, etc.). Relining is considerably less expensive than a new denture (provided the teeth are still in good shape and bite alignment), otherwise a new denture is also a possible option. Furthermore, dental implants could be done to even further improve the retention (how tight they stay).
