Implant abutments are artificial devices that are connected to the dental implants after the healing process is over. The abutments are used to attach a crown, bridge, or removable denture to the implant fixtures. Accurate prosthodontic rehabilitation is the key factor for providing the long-term success and the survival of osseointegrated implants. A precise fit of the implant is crucial since microgaps at the implant–abutment interface allow for microbial colonization, which can lead to peri-implant tissue inflammation. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) has been used for academic investigations and commercialization of several dental devices, such as dental implantsabutments, healing caps, orthodontic braces, and most notably denture prosthetic frameworks.
