Are you sitting comfortably? PEEK: the comfortable alternative for full arch dental implant prosthetics

Prof. Paul Tipton B.D.S., M.Sc., D.G.D.P.

PEEK high performance polymers, such JUVORA™ made from PEEK-OPTIMA™, can be used as a substructure for functional and aesthetic permanent full arch prosthetics with the added benefit of providing built-in shock absorption.

Professor Paul Tipton has been a pioneer in evaluating modern substructure materials and in this webinar he describes two cases:

  • a 71 year old with existing upper and lower dentures requesting fixed bridgework and implants;
  • a 55 year old patient presenting with poor dentition, lack of posterior stability leading to an aged look.

In both cases, Professor Tipton will teach his approach to the clinical stages involved in the making of PEEK frameworks using JUVORA™ Dental Discs made from PEEK-OPTIMA™. He explores how PEEK can help to mitigate the extreme forces in the mouth (which are particularly prevalent in patients with parafunction) and can provide enhanced patient comfort.
