Straumann has filed a US patent application for a Peek/Titanium composite one-piece Implant. This implant design features an outer titanium shell (label 1 and 2) and an inner core made of PEEK (label 3 and 4). This designs claims the aesthetic advantage of the white-coloured PEEK at the collar and abutment with the proven osseointegration properties of titanium. This is an interesting design response to the number of zirconium collar (TBR Group) and all zirconium implant (Z-Systems) designs.
