PEEK has several advantages in dental applications.

  • Biocompatibility: PEEK is a biocompatible material, which means it does not cause any adverse reactions in the body. This makes it a safe and effective material for use in dental implants and other restorative devices.
  • High Strength and Stiffness: PEEK has excellent mechanical properties, which makes it durable and long-lasting. It can withstand high loads without deforming, making it suitable for use in dental bridges and other restorations.
  • Low Modulus: PEEK has a lower modulus compared to titanium and zirconia, this makes it less stiff and more flexible, allowing it to be more comfortable for the patient.
  • Good Imaging Properties: PEEK has good imaging properties which allow for the accurate placement of the dental implant.
  • Aesthetics: PEEK has a natural-looking translucent color that mimics the appearance of natural teeth.
  • Cost-effective: PEEK is cost-effective when compared to other materials like titanium, which makes it an affordable option for many patients.
  • Can be digitally designed and milled to match the patient’s anatomy

It is strong and lightweight for improved patient comfort
