The Benefits of Polyether-Ether-Ketone Polymers in Partial Edentulous Patients


Abstract:
Skeleton prosthesis is defined as a complex partial movable restoration, which involves a fixed component (dental bridge cemented on the remaining prepared teeth), and movable component part. Recently, a new high performance polymer, BioHPP, based on polyether-ether-ketone (PEEK) polymer was introduced as dental material for manufacturing the framework of these types of partial dentures.The purpose of this article is to present the results of the clinical trials referring to the benefits of skeleton prostheses wearers’ patients with BioHPP framework. The research has been carried out on 48 patients. The recording of the benefits in the using this polymer for partial dentures, in accordance with seven evaluation criteria, was performed in three dental schools from Romania, during three years, at every three months.The results of survey demonstrate that BioHPP polymer frameworks for skeleton movable restorations present many benefits and advantages, therefore this PEEK type of dental material represent a beneficial new acquisition for the partial edentulous patients.
