Medical Peek – The definitive material?
Avinent Implant System
The world of prosthetics, like the world of odontology, changes every day. We are in the midst of a transition that leads us towards a new era where work processes are changing, where technology determines our product’s evolution and where final users are increasingly clear as to what they want and how they want it.
A part of this revolution is the appearance of new materials. As a result, oftentimes cases that previously we could only tackle in a single manner demand that we consider various ways to resolve them in order to determine the optimal one.
Peek is a relatively new material that is bound to become widely demanded. It is already being used in areas such as cranio-maxillofacial surgery, cardiovascular control valves, healing caps and many other applications.
In this case, we are specifically referring to the JUVORATM Peek material, a brand that we commercialise. For this reason, we are knowledgeable about many of the advantages it offers in prosthetic applications.
Restorations using Peek are particularly indicated in implant abutment, skeletal, telescopic and removable structures, amongst the most common cases.
Peek is a pure material that offers admirable technical advantages.
One of the most important advantages to be taken into consideration is the absence of metal, which results in numerous advantages for patients, including the prevention of allergies caused by contact with the metal, a neutral taste and the disappearance of electrical and thermal conductivity.
Another major advantage of Peek lies in the material’s elasticity, which makes it very similar to bone and, thus, allows for optimal functional and aesthetic results. To this we must add its capacity to absorb loads, which provides patients with greater comfort and well-being.
Since it is an implantable biocompatible material, its behaviour has been proved on numerous occasions; thus, we can expect this property to be long-lasting, which, in turn, offers much greater reliability.
Thus, the Medical Peek material must be taken into consideration when determining our range of possibilities and, therefore, be kept in mind in those cases where it may be of great assistance.
In general, we must keep in constant touch with changes in our market and attempt to keep updated at all times. In this regard, we can recommend a number of courses to our readers that will provide more in-depth information about this product.
We are confident that we shall soon see the continuing evolution of this promising material, which is very likely to prevail amongst us.
