BENEFITS OF PEEK PROSTHESIS
The fact that the PEEK prosthesis is removable, it can be easily cleaned. The usual crowns are firmly anchored in the jaw and often they are not firmly on the gum so that leftovers can get into the space where they are usually only be removed with dental floss. The result is bad breath or even severe inflammation that can range up to the bone.
