Justin Hunter buys and sells used dental equipment. In the course of his business, he comes across a lot of other unusual items, and then explores the market for them. Like used dentures. I am not making this up. He sold a jar full of dentures on Ebay for $110.
When a person has lost all of their teeth, for one reason or another, they may not want to spend any more money at the dentist. A set of custom fit dentures can cost $900+. A set of used dentures? $100-200.
As icky as it is, that $700-800 can make the difference between having teeth and not having teeth. -via Most Forbidden Zone
