PEEK plastic can be used with both fixed and removable dentures. The metal-free alternative can therefore also be used for partial framework prostheses (RPD). When modeling PEEK partial framework (RPD), however, it is essential to ensure that the prosthesis, as mentioned above, has to be made thicker in order to achieve the desired stability. At this point it should also be mentioned that the PEEK prosthesis, unlike a metal prosthesis, cannot be expanded. Repairs are not possible with this material.
The high-performance resin PEEK is particularly popular for telescopic prostheses. Due to its material properties, there is hardly any wear and tear between the primary and secondary telescopes. With implants themselves, PEEK reaches its limits, but implant abutments can definitely be made from PEEK plastic. Here, as with bridge work made of PEEK plastic, the advantage of its dampening effect comes into play.
Crown and bridge designs can also be made from PEEK plastic. In the visible area, however, this is not recommended due to its poor aesthetics.
