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
More shock absorbent than other dental materials Titanium, helps improve clinical outcome1
PEEK-OPTIMA™ biocompatibility in conformance with ISO 10993-1, for use in the manufacture of medical devices for long-term implantable dental applications3
On a weight for weight basis PEEK-OPTIMATM is stronger than metal and offers superior mechanical performance and long-term resilience
The high-performance polymers called PEEK and PEKK have exciting potential in dentistry as a metal alternative for removable and implant prosthetic frameworks.” Professor Paul Tipton
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:
