Prosthetic frameworks

What if a prosthetic frame could influence quality of life?

PEEK is ideal as a long-term prosthetic framework for implant-supported prostheses or removable dentures. Removable dentures can seat onto existing dentition or be supported onto telescope crowns or implant bars, and can be removed by the patient for cleaning. Implant prostheses are secured onto dental implant systems.

Invibio offers two options:

  • PEEK-OPTIMA high-performance polymer for the manufacture of bespoke customer branded dental devices
  • The JUVORA dental disc. A ready-to-go dental device that is CE, FDA and ANVISA cleared for implant borne fixed or removable prosthetic frameworks made through CAD/CAM workflows

The JUVORA dental device 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 JUVORA 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 JUVORA was up to 5 times higher than similar tests conducted with Titanium implant prosthetics. 3
