PEEK materials as an alternative to titanium in dental implants

Titanium (Ti) and its alloys are widely used for dental implant treatment. The insertion of dental implants containing titanium can be associated with various complications. Advancements in dental materials have given dentistry more promising materials, yet each material remains short of being the ideal one. Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) is one of the viable materials which is scientifically approved and safe materials in medical and dental use. Due to its excellent properties PEEK has several applications in field of dentistry like implants, removable and fixed partial dentures, and orthodontic wires. The aim of this article is to evaluate whether PEEK can be used as an alternative material for dental implants. Key words: Biocompatibility, implants, PEEK, surface modification, titanium
