ABSTRACT:The use of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) in dentistry has gained increasing attention due to its unique properties, including high biocompatibility, fracture resistance, esthetics, radiopacity, and bone-like mechanical properties. Evidence shows that PEEK is a promising material in dentistry and its potential as an alternative to traditional implant and dental prosthesis materials is evident. Although much remains to be investigated in terms of clinical applications and long-term tissue integration of this material, its high biocompatibility and aesthetics are indicative of future success. In this article, a review of the most relevant scientific literature on the use of PEEK in dentistry is carried out and its applications are highlighted, from the manufacture of abutments and restoration scaffolds, dental posts and cores, to the use in dental implants and scaffolds for bone regeneration.
