What is an Allon4?
The Allon4 treatment consists in 4 implants per arch that goes drilled into the patient’s jawbone to support a full denture. That is right, you read it well, a full denture fixed to the mouth. This means that you can forget about partial and full dentures. Thanks to modern dentistry, implants can replace a missing tooth or a full set of teeth.
The procedure begins with an exam, the CT scan, to see the patient’s jawbone. If the patient has enough bone the implants can be installed with no problem. On case they don’t, then a bone graft is needed to fill the bone deficit. This set back the treatment 6 months as the bone has to heal before putting the implant in place. You must muster all your patience but in the end it is worth all the time and wait..
Putting the implants is quick and painless thanks to local anesthesia. The patient can also get IV sedation if he or she wishes. To put the implants in place a computer drill is used to calculate the exact place. Then a temporary denture is custom made for the patient to use in the healing period. The healing period goes between 4 to 8 months depending on the patient. It is important that you follow the dentist instructions to see the implants heal nicely.
After the healing period the patient comes back for the permanent fixed denture. The denture can be made from porcelain, zirconia or acrylic. The look and feel will be just like natural teeth. It is important that you take good care of your new denture by cleaning it daily just as natural teeth. In case you are interested we have guarantee of our work at our dental clinic. More on that later in this article.
Differences with Allon6 and Allon8
Many patients also ask us often about the Allon6 and Allon8. The difference is that one uses 6 implants and the other 8 implants instead of 4 per arch. This offer more sustainability but adds more weight to the patient’s mouth. Which one is more optimal for the patient will depend on many factors. It can be due to bone density, muscle, lifestyle and more. The implantologist will be the person to decide that along with the patient..
However in most cases it won’t be necessary to use more than implants per arch. 4 titanium implants are more than enough to support the acrylic denture. Putting more weight in the jaw can backfire in the long run. We suggest to always consult with your dentist and doing every exam needed in order to decide the best course of action.
Alternatives to the Allon4
For some patients getting an Allon4 can be hard for several reasons. If that is your case do not despair as there are plenty of options available. You can replace missing teeth with bridges or even partial dentures. This can offer a solution although not permanent it looks just as aesthetically pleasing. We suggest that you ask your dentist for all the options available for you.
If you want dental implants no matter what then you can opt for a snap on denture. It uses only 2 implants per arch and a snap on denture. It is cheaper but it is not permanent, it is a denture that you can take it off any time. Because it uses 2 implants it does not offer full support for a fixed denture. In the future you can adapt those implants if you go for an all on 4, saving money in the process.
