When most of us think of dentures, we envision the old version of dentures that are made out of plastic and just sit on the gum tissue. There are many potential issues with this type of denture because there is nothing securing the denture in place. It may become loose and make it hard to eat with. Centennial cosmetic dentistry for dental implants accomplish the same purpose as dentures and are much easier for the patient in the long run because they are much more secure. The dental implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone. The denture can then be secured to the dental implant.
