Metal alternative solutions for greater patient comfort

See what dental experts say about the potential of our PEEK polymers

WHY DENTAL SPECIALISTS OPT FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE POLYMER SOLUTIONS?

Flexible, durable and lightweight biomaterials offer a more natural dental solution than traditional material alternatives, such as metal or ceramic

BONE-LIKE MODULUS

More shock absorbent than other dental materials Titanium, helps improve clinical outcome1

BIOCOMPATIBLE

PEEK-OPTIMA™ biocompatibility in conformance with ISO 10993-1, for use in the manufacture of medical devices for long-term implantable dental applications3

LONG-TERM PERFORMANCE

On a weight for weight basis PEEK-OPTIMA™ is stronger than metal and offers superior mechanical performance and long-term resilience

DENTIST & PATIENT BENEFITS

DENTIST & PATIENT BENEFITS

Dental prosthetics made with JUVORATM enables superior precision through CAD/CAM workflows that delivers tailored fit and comfort1. Made from our PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymer, this innovative biomaterial flexes2 and, unlike metal, enables the absorption of shock in the masticatory system2, protecting the device and patient, especially in cases of bruxism which can lead to parafunction.

Furthermore, based on recent clinical research and compared to the literature values for titanium, our JUVORATM implant prosthetics offer potential benefits that include:

  • Up to 10% better implant survival rate3
  • Up to x5 less bone loss3
  • Up to x10 less incidence Peri-Implantitis3
  • Up to 8% better prosthetic survival rate3
  • The patient ‘oral health-related quality of life’ score for JUVORATM was up to 5 times higher than similar tests conducted with Titanium implant prosthetics3.
DENTAL LABORATORY BENEFITS

DENTAL LABORATORY BENEFITS

The JUVORA™ dental disc enables superior precision through CAD/CAM workflows that delivers tailored fit and comfort1.  JUVORA is manufactured from PEEK-OPTIMA™ and delivers a shock absorbing, high performance polymer alternative to zirconia or metal, for permanent, fixed and removable dental frameworks.

JUVORA™ can be manufactured with most conventional CAD/CAM systems:

  • 4-5 axis milling systems that can accommodate 98mm stepped discs, or *95mm slotted discs designed to accommodate Zirkonzahn® milling systems
  • uses carbide milling tools
  • can be milled using either dry or wet milling systems

Based on research and compared to titanium, JUVORA™ dental discs:

  • Up to x3 faster milling
  • Lower tooling costs
  • Enables in-house manufacture even at entry level CAD/CAM
  • Versatile metal and zirconia alternative for mainstream and complex cases
  • Extends portfolio of solutions, enables innovation and a competitive edge
