Abstract

Applications of PEEK in Dentistry study

Saaransh Handa, Sahej Handa

Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a high-performance polymer with favorable physical, mechanical, and chemical properties that has recently been used in dentistry. The processing properties of PEEK complement the use of digitization to create patient-specific prosthetics. PEEK is one of the materials that could be used in dental applications to replace titanium and zirconia. It is suitable for use as dental implants, abutments, and removable partial dentures.
