The type of prosthetic restoration used in implant rehabilitation greatly contributes to the recovery of masticatory function as well as quality of life in patients. Frameworks for implant-supported prostheses are typically made by casting metal or milling either titanium or zirconia. Recently, nonmetal, polymer-type materials were suggested as framework materials. Polyetherketoneketone (PEKK), a high-performance polymer, was recently introduced in the dental field with potentially wide-ranging applications. This case history report describes implant- and tooth-supported fixed prostheses created using a new highperformance polymer (Pekkton, Cendres+Metaux) framework for a fully edentulous maxilla and partially edentulous mandible.
