In brief: Routine Care
Dentures are not something that should automatically be expected.
If you perform good oral hygiene at home through brushing 3x a day, flossing after meals, using a good oral rinse, seeing your dentist at least every 6 months, and having all recommended dental work performed to maintain your teeth, you should be able to avoid dentures.

In brief: Good oral hygiene
I guess not. All profesionals would recommend good oral hygiene, toothbrush c toothpaste after any meal, dental floss, professional cleaning q 6 month, avoid sweets or candies to prevent dental decay.
Fluoride applications may benefit specially during childhood. Diet and genetics play a rol. Oral hygiene makes a difference.

In brief: Hygiene visits
G to the dentist on a 3-4 month schedule for routine cleanings is the best way to stay away from dentures.
