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, that 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

peek-optima™ natural

PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymer blends proven performance with superior wear, safety and comfort. Since Invibio introduced PEEK-OPTIMA as the first implantable PEEK polymer in 1999, it has earned the confidence and gained the acceptance of the global medical community.

The properties of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Natural, used in the JUVORA™ disc device, are closer to bone than metal, so there is more flex.3

Because of its natural flexibility, the polymer allows a more uniform stress transfer to the underlying area of bone, which:

  • Reduces localized stress points in the mouth
  • Improves patient comfort
