BioHPP is a partially crystalline material on a base of ceramics-strengthened polyether ether ketone “PEEK”. The binding forces of polymer chains are more efficient when the chains are arranged in parallel. Areas similar to these are known as crystalline. The main component of breCAM.BioHPP has been in successful use in human medicine for more than 30 years (for spinal column intermediate body and hip joint prosthesis for 20 years).

The use of ceramic filler considerably improved the material properties (strength, abrasive characteristics, veneering capacity), so they were adapted and optimized to meet the requirements for applications in dental medicine.

  • Intended for long-term use
    • BioHPP is therefore the latest material for permanent dentures
  • Antiallergic » Perfect solution for allergic persons
    • - Zero metal content
    • - Zero oxide content
    • - Zero monomer content
    • - No allergic reactions
    • - No pigmentation of the gingiva / unknown so far/
  • Light / similar to bone
    • Optimal biocompatibility and integration into the mandible without galvanic effect.
      No oxidation or metal taste
  • Off-peak effect
    • BioHPP can reduce compression and torsion caused by chewing and partially compensate for it.
      This results in a periodontic effect and an increase in wearing comfort.
  • Heat conduction properties similar to teeth
    • Comfortable feeling when worn.
      No difference in perception with regard to warm/cold meals.
  • Crowns
  • Bridges with not more than 2 pontics
  • Crowns bridges for implant works
  • Primary telescopes
  • Removable dental prostheses
  • Secondary bridges
  • Secondary telescopes
  • Tertiary frameworks
  • Artificial dentures
  • Toronto bridges
