Brief Summary:

All ceramic crowns are indicated in case of mild to moderate discoloration, restoration of traumatized or fractured teeth and abnormal tooth anatomy. Long term success of all ceramic crowns is affected by many factors. Fracture of the all ceramic crowns is the most repeated failure pattern and represents about 67% of total failures associated with this type of restoration through a period of 15 years of clinical performance.

Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a polymer that has many potentials uses in dentistry. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) can be used to support fixed dental prostheses. However, information about physio mechanical characterization is still scarce.

Detailed Description:

Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a synthetic, tooth colored polymeric material that has been used as a biomaterial in orthopedics for many years due to its lower Young's (elastic) modulus (3-4 GPa) being close to human bone. PEEK can be modified easily by incorporation of other materials. For example; incorporation of carbon fibers or glass fibers can increase the elastic modulus up to 18 GPa which becomes comparable to those of cortical bone and dentin so the polymer could exhibit good stress distribution . Moreover, tensile properties of PEEK are also analogous to those of bone, enamel and dentin making it a suitable restorative material as far as the mechanical properties are concerned.

BioHPP PEEK is 20% ceramic reinforced, semicrystalline, thermoplastic and radiolucent polymer for extreme durability especially for frameworks for fixed and removable dental prostheses. It has many advantages as low density, light weight, shock absorber, biocompatible and venerable with composite resin.

BioHPP PEEK can be fabricated via CAD/CAM technology by milling PEEK blanks. It is also can be pressed by using granular or pellet-shaped PEEK. Three-unit PEEK fixed partial denture manufactured via CAD-CAM has been suggested to have a higher fracture resistance than pressed granular- or pellet-shaped PEEK dentures.

The fracture resistance of the CAD/CAM milled PEEK fixed dentures is much higher than those of lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (950N), alumina (851N) , zirconia (981-1331N). The abrasive properties of PEEK are excellent. Despite of significantly low elastic moduli and hardness, abrasive resistance of PEEK is competitive with metallic alloys .

BioHPP PEEK can be used under resin composite as a coping material. Because the mechanical properties of PEEK are similar to those of dentin and enamel, PEEK could have an advantage over alloy and ceramic restorations . A variety of procedures have been suggested to condition the surface of PEEK in order to facilitate its bonding with resin composite crowns. For example, air abrasion with and without silica coating creates a more wettable surface. Etching with sulphuric acid creates a rough and chemically altered surface which enables it to bond more effectively with hydrophobic resin composites .

Due to these unique physical and mechanical properties, BioHPP PEEK is a promising material for dental application and it has been proposed for other prosthodontic applications such as fixed prostheses and removable prostheses .
