FDA Health Restoration Materiral Biohpp Bredent High Stiffness
BioHPP is flexible and elastic like bone.
Unlike framework materials used so far, BioHPP features elasticity
adapted to the bone. Ceramic and NPM are about 20 times, gold and
titanium about 10 times more rigid than bone material. This
similarity with bone offers particular advantages especially for
But what is BioHPP?
BioHPP stands for High Performance Polymer
- Material properties
- Medical device class II a
- white color
⇒ suitable for fully anatomical use
- can be veneered with conventional veneering composites (e.g.
⇒ high esthetic appearance and individualization
- no brasive effect on the remaining teeth
⇒ enamel of opposing teeth is protected
⇒ no ion exchange in the mouth, no discoloration
- partially crystalline thermoplastic resin reinforced with ceramic
particles to withstand extreme stress
⇒ material is suitable as a substructure material
- has been used as implant material in human medicine for more 20
⇒ long-term experience is ensured
Gold casting alloys, cobalt-chrome casting alloys and titanium are
the most accessible and well-known materials used for the
manufacture of framework structures today. In the last 15 years,
zirconium dioxide has become processable due to the CAD/CAM
technique and has pushed signifi cant numbers of metallic alloys
off the market. In order to be able to process the zirconium
dioxide, dental technicians had to master a new technique and make
major investments in software and hardware. Manufacturing is
increasingly carried out in milling centres today, meaning that
there is a stronger price war for this material and the dental
prosthesis manufactured from it.
BioHPP is a material based on PEEK (polyetheretherketone), which
has already been successfully used in operations carried out on
humans for many years. Thanks to its excellent stability, its
optimal polishable properties and its low plaque affi nity.
BioHPP is particularly well suited for producing high-quality
prosthetic restorations. The elasticity of the material, which lies
within the range of bone, makes it a more natural material, as it
is able to compensate for the torsion of bone, in particular in the
case of larger implant work. The aesthetic white shade supports its
use in the fi eld of prosthetics.
