Pekkton Full arch restorations require 4-6 implants for support of the prosthesis and replace a complete tooth arch (upper or lower). It is a non-removable, screw retained option that can only be taken out by the dentist. Pekkton is a high performance polymer that has similar characteristics to those of human bone. It has qualities of shock absorption and is light-weight and natural for the patient. The teeth are designed out of zirconia material for every tooth individually and get cemented to the Pekkton base. Patients with TMJ problems and patients that have only 4 implants (not sufficient for Zirconia restoration) that want to have alternatives to a Hybrid restoration may choose this option as an alternative.
